“Thanks For The Way Out, Jesus!”
The horrible, excruciating (from the root for crucifixion) death which Jesus, “God The Son”, suffered is described in gruesome detail in the forensic article here.
Jesus did NOT have to die because “God The Father” is angry at us, blood-thirsty, and vicious. But, He did have to die! And, then, be raised from the dead.
God’s blood-lust is NOT biblical …despite its often, and incorrect, belief by some Christians, and reasonable rejection by atheists.
The wrong belief is the result of a misapplication of one verse of the Hebrew Law, taken out of context, which you can read in the graphic below. The “blood reference” is cited, but not commanded for non-Jews, in Hebrews 9:22.
God is NOT blood-thristy, nor did He demand that His Son sacrifice His blood for the forgiveness of our sins.
Jesus sacrificed Himself so He could take on Himself all humankind’s sinful, wrong-doing. And because He died as the sinless, undeserving-of-death, God-man, we can be free of our sinful nature, plus our many sins which separate us from our holy God.
God, our “The Holy Creator & Loving Heavenly Father” is eager and willing to replace the awful, sinful nature, and forgive all the sins, of anyone who simply will believe in, follow, and obey His Son!
“For God made King Jesus, who never sinned, to be the offering for our sin, so that we could be made right with God through Him.”
~ 2 Corinthians 5:21
This is simply explained in Romans 10:8-13, “How To Personally Connect With The One Living God, Jesus”.
This is the simple Gospel of Jesus. This is truly GOOD NEWS!
And as Kelley Mooney sings in her video of that name …Hallelujah!
