Ezra 9 and the Trinity

Ezra 9:1–15 (ESV)

1 After these things had been done, the officials approached me and said, “The people of Israel and the priests and the Levites have not separated themselves from the peoples of the lands with their abominations, from the Canaanites, the Hittites, the Perizzites, the Jebusites, the Ammonites, the Moabites, the Egyptians, and the Amorites.

What does Ezra 9 reveal about what God the Son does in my place and on my behalf?

God the Son came to bear the burden of God’s wrath against my sin so that God can at the same time be just and the one who justifies sinners. My sin is punished since it is paid for by Jesus Christ (therefore God remains just in forgiving me my sin).
