Why Jesus Had To Die (Part 2)

February 14, 2021 Speaker: Mark Petersburg Series: The Book of John

Passage: John 18–19

When considering the crucial issue why Jesus had to die, you must study the concept of “atonement.” This Old Testament word, reinforced in the New Testament by different words, means essentially “a covering for sin.” How is God able to forgive sinners if we really acknowledge how terrible sin is? The answer is bound up in the substitutionary atonement of Jesus on the cross. Without the cross there can be no forgiveness, no salvation.
