Two reactionary answers spring to mind. Both are correct. First, Jesus died for you. You may have heard the old fashioned evangelist, in tender tone, remind us that “if we were the only people on the planet, Jesus would still have died for us”. The second easy answer would be “everyone”. There is not a person on the planet who is not beyond or outside of the victory on Calvary’s hill. That Jesus died for me and Jesus died for everyone are both true statements, but there is a further answer to this question that, like the aforementioned answers, is broadly universal yet also deeply personal.
