We shouldn't misunderstand and think of a division in the Trinity bas though the Father is angry and the Son isn't.  The Father sent the son.  It was His love that moved Him to do so.  But I don't see how we can ignore the Biblical Woprd that says that there was a ransom paid to redeem sinners, and there was a sacrifice to take away God's wrath--and both of these were directed to the Trinity, no tto the devil.  It was God's love that moved Him to bear the just punishment of wrath against sin in His own flesh.

Probably beyond my comprehension--Gerhard Forde used the metaphor of Jesus running into the street to push a child out of the way of an oncoming truck recognizing the truck is being driven by His Father. I am grateful I don't have to experience God only in His wrath.
