what is grace?

‘chen’ is the hebrew word for grace, it means favor. within the construct of atonement theology (saying that we need jesus to die for our sins) grace is something we can’t do without. the word itself connotes a gift given freely, not something that’s pryed out of the hands of God. if jesus had to die and god had to ‘force his hand’ than that grace from god isn’t given freely.
