18. I think it is in this sense that we should read 1 John 2:1-2, “If anyone sins we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous. And He Himself is the propitiation for our sins.” This does not speak of Jesus as pleading for mercy, but rather as reminding the Father of what Jesus has already done.
