Christ died to satisfy the Father, and defeat Satan

Christ, when he died, died not to satisfy Satan, but his Father; not to appease the devil, but to answer the demands of the justice of God; nor did he design, when he hanged on the tree, to triumph over his Father, but over Satan; ‘He redeemed us,’ therefore, ‘from the curse of the law,’ by his blood. Gal. 3:13 And from the power of Satan, by his resurrection. He. 2:14 He delivered us from righteous judgment by price and purchase; but from the rage of hell by fight and conquest.

John Bunyan, The Work of Jesus Christ As An Advocate. II. (3)
