Jesus was willing to give up his life to save us from the penalty that we owed for breaking the Laws of God. God was so pleased with His Son, and So loved the world, that he accepted this wonderful gift of His Life, and opened the way for sinful man to have a relationship with God.

Jesus death on the cross was a dead of substitution, he took our place, bore our sins, in his body and paid the death penalty for us. We were under the death penalty from God because of what Adam did in the garden of Eden(we are all sons of Adam). As imperfect people our deaths would not suffice to satisfy the father, who needed a perfect spotless sacrifice for sins. Almighty God, provided that sacrifice for us by offering his son, who was perfect in our place.

Are you confused by the two different uses of the word "for"?
"for us" ... Jesus died on our behalf
"for our sins" ... Jesus died because of our sins, to free us from the eternal punishment for our sins.
Please continue watching this blog, it is so important, and others will explain better than I could how and why Jesus did this, and how we can respond to His love.

The real reason is that Adam was created to live forever (conditionally) forfeited it for all of us Rom.5.12 Christ bought it back for us with His own perfect life.1cor.15.21-26,45. That's why He is called our "redeemer' or "ransomer"

By giving His Son and the Son having laid upon Him all the inquity of the world, God could be just in giving the sinner another chance--just and yet the justifier of them that believe in Him (Romans 3:26). He was made to be sin--Who was innocent; that we--who are guilty--might be made the righteousness of God in Him (2 Cor. 5:21).

Jesus died for us when He became sin itself for us and was treated as we should have been--the Father hid His face from Him. He voluntarily had our sins laid upon Him (Isaiah 53:6). The entire sacrificial system revealed that sin, its guilt, and penalty could be laid upon another, even the Lamb of God, slain from the foundation of the world. In every sacrifice, man was to see the Redeemer dying in his place, taking away sin and giving the repentant sinner freedom to rise and walk in newness of life.

God loves us so much that He sent His only Son in this world to take on human flesh and die as the Sacrifice for our sins on the Cross. Without Jesus' death on the Cross for us we would all perish and go to hell. But God made the way to heaven for us with His Son's death. Sin is man's problem.

There are any number of right answers to that question.

But let's make sure our faith is in Jesus Himself and not in a theory about how He saves us.

He gave His life for us. He laid it down, no man took it from Him, He gave it up for us.

The Bible tells us that we all are sinners and as such we were due to pay the penalty which is death! Fortunatly Father and Son had agreed on a plan of redemption, whereby Jesus would die in our place and in a loving gesture making it possible for justiced to be carried out and love to give us the hope/assurance of eternal life. So He died "the second death" but more importantly He was resurrected. How will you respond? P.

greetings ,there is what is called the atonement doctrine where people who agree with it have in( basic ) a selection of four definitions to choose from for defining the the reasons for jesus' death,and why.if you are sincere in your quest then there will be no religious authority to blind you or bind spite of attention this question will raise,the spirit of truth,will lead the way and the indwelling will teach you.remember that sin is not tranferable.

if by how you mean why john 3 16 tells his death he took upon himself the sins of the entire world past present and furture.

#4 Christ died that very sinful sinner. He paid the penalty due to our sins; for He had no sins of His own to die for. We paid the debt due our sins by dying in Him. Now, when we believe on Jesus, God counts us as righteous as His Son actually was and is in Himself. "In Christ," we are a "new creation." "In Christ," we become "the righteousness of God." John 5:24

#3 God counted His Son exactly that sinful, depraved object, when He hung on the cross. Because He became identified with us in our fallen condition, God could not look upon Him; That was why Jesus cried, Matt. 27:46. That was how and when He tasted "death for every man" - Heb.2:9. The wrath that abideth upon the Christ rejecter fell on Christ then. He tasted eternal death for you and for me. He tasted death for all men.
That was the reason of those three hours of darkness.

#2 How can Jehovah justly deal with sin and the sinner and still save him, and yet maintain His own righteousness? According to "the counsel of His own will" (Eph. 1:11), God decided that the Word would be made flesh and dwell among us (John 1:14). Then after this Word was proven holy and accepted of God, He was made "sin for us" and "was numbered with the transgressors" - Isaiah 53:12. God counted His Son a sinner on Calvary. We are sinful, depraved.

#1 II Corinthians 5:21 This is a very vital verse. It speaks of the deepest meaning of Christ's death for man. Jesus Christ was pure and holy. He had no sin in Him. It was
impossible for Him to commit sin. I Jn 3:9. On the other hand, man is full of sin and cannot do right. Rom. 8:7,8; Gen. 6:5. Now the Holy God cannot look upon sin, nor justify the sinner. Note Job 10:14. Because of His own holiness, God must punish the transgressor. Ezek.18:4,20.
