Infant Salvation

I had an interesting thought today about Jesus and salvation.  When Jesus was born, it was the invasion of earth by God and his power.  Satan had control of most of the world.  But the entrance of a Savior of the World could change that for him.  Satan immediately tries to get rid of Jesus.  He used the wise men who were coming to worship Jesus to make Herod mad and want to get rid of Him.  But what would have happened if Herod would have killed Jesus?  Could God have used the death of an infant to save the world?

According to John 17:4 Jesus is praying before his death,

"I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do."

Apparently Jesus' work was finished before he died. It makes you wonder why some people make such a big deal of substitutionary atonement.
