Why Did Jesus Have To Die?

According to the Apostle Paul the cross lies at the very heart of the Christian faith. In the letter to the church at Galatia, Paul wrote: “God forbid that I should boast of anything but the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ.” (Galatians 6:14)

The cross is the centerpiece.

But why? Have you ever wondered that?

Why did Jesus have to die?

And why did Jesus have to die on a cross?

Why did Jesus have to die in such a cruel and inhumane way?

Why did Jesus have to die the death of a common criminal?

Thankfully, God does not leave us without answers.

The biblical writers use multiple metaphors, pictures and images to help us glimpse the majestic power at work on the cross.

Why did Jesus have to die?

The answer is

... bigger than we have been told.

… more beautiful than we can comprehend.

… better than mere words can describe.

Join us during the 4 weeks before Easter as we explore this important question together.
