Why did Jesus have to die on the Cross?
The death of Jesus was the payment
for all the sins of the world that had been taken away through His
baptism. People were facing eternal deaths of hellfire for their
sins, but because Jesus loved us, He accepted baptism, which passed
all our sins on to Him, and died on the Cross to save us.
He sacrificed Himself to save us from
sin and from the curse of hell. His death was the payment for the
sins of humankind. He was baptized to take away all the sins of
the world and gave Himself to judgment on the Cross in order to
save all of us from sin, death, judgment and damnation.
The death of Jesus was for the sins
of the world that He took onto Himself at the Jordan so that He
could receive judgment for the sins of humankind. He died on the
Cross and was resurrected to let us live again as the righteous.
