From your knowledge of Scripture and logic, is it biblically "comparable (not comparing apples to oranges) to ask: When was Jesus' sacrifice for our sins acceptable to God? (A) When he prayed (& surrendered to God) in the Garden of Gethsemane, or (B) When he died on the Cross? When reading Scripture doesn't lead my friends to come to the same conclusions (as me) regarding Acts 2:42-ff, I wonder if the logic above would help. However, I don't want to present a faulty comparison. Please advise. -- M. E.
I would say (B). Without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness (Heb 9:22) -- right?
