In theologies of the atonement the starting point is often the problem of human sin. While not discounting the importance of the role of sin this article explores the significance of so divine and human suffering for the atonement, with special focus on the biblical texts about God's experience of pain and the role of Christ's suffering on the cross in overcoming suffering through suffering.
