    1 John 2:1 My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous:

    2:2 And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for our's only, but also for the sins of the whole world.

    John spoke of Jesus as being the propitiation or the appeasement for the sins of the world.

    John 1:29 The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.

    John the baptist identified Jesus as the Lamb of God that takes away the sins of the world. God promised to provide the sacrificial lamb to Abraham (Genesis 22:7-8).

    Jesus told the twelve disciples that the prophets spoke of his death and resurrection (Luke 18:31-33) but the meaning was hid from them and they did not understand it (Luke 18:34).

    How God could take away the sin of the world and remain just was not yet made known.

    All that the death and resurrection of Christ would accomplish was not known until revealed to Paul (1 Corinthians 2:8).

    2 Corinthians 5:19 To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.

    Jesus revealed to Paul that by the cross sin was not being imputed or reckoned to the world.

    The word of this reconciliation that is preached must be believed. The gospel that Christ died for our sins and rose for our justification must be believed (Romans 4:25).

    By the cross God could be just and the justifier of those who trust in Christ Jesus and his blood (Romans 3:24-26).

    Why would this be regarded as *unorthodox* and placed in this section?

    Christ did indeed die for the sins of the whole world, and by doing so "took them away". Meaning that the penalty for the sins of the whole world was paid by Him in full. That is a central doctrine of Bible Christianity.

    Because some may contend that all the assertions made by me in regard to what was revealed in Paul could be found in the old testament books and the four gospels.
