Yes He did! But not just for Christians for EVERYONE.
John 19:30 So when Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, “IT IS FINISHED!” And bowing His head, He gave up His spirit.
Tetelestai = it is finished! What has been finished? Christ's work as Savior of the world ... past, present, and future.
John 3:16-18 16 For God so loved the WORLD that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. 17 For God did not send His Son into the WORLD to condemn the WORLD, but that the WORLD through Him might be saved. 18 “He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
The “world” means everyone including the past, present, and future.
I Cor. 15:21, 22 21 For since by man (Adam) came death, by Man (Jesus) also came the resurrection of the dead. 22 For as in Adam ALL die, even so IN Christ ALL shall be made alive.
This doesn’t say some or a few or even most … it says ALL and all means all.
Titus 3:11 For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to ALL men,
Again, this doesn’t say some or a few or even most … it says ALL.
God's grace and peace to ALL. God bless.
