“God made Him [ who had no sin] to be sin for us” (2 Cor 5:21 NIV) goes much deeper than that. I can only understand by it that, as to His own consciousness, Christ on the cross was as sin in the holy presence of God. I do not think anything short of this gives an adequate idea of the forsaking of God, or of the dealing with sin so as to remove it from before God.
