We now have to consider Christ's Passion as to its effect; first of all, as to the manner in which it was brought about; and, secondly, as to the effect in itself.
Under the first heading there are six points for inquiry:
A Whether Christ's Passion brought about our salvation by way of merit?
A Whether it was by way of atonement?
A Whether it was by way of sacrifice?
A Whether it was by way of redemption?
A Whether it is proper to Christ to be the Redeemer?
A Whether (the Passion) secured man's salvation efficiently?
