Explain what Christians believe about the death of Jesus
In the beginning the relationship between God and people was a love pact (covenant.) But, things went wrong when the people broke the covenant. The promise was broken by Adam eating the forbidden fruit that God had told him not to touch. To attempt to heal the relationship God sent prophets like Noah, Moses and Abraham to his people on earth.
Jesus was finally sent to save the people and heal this relationship.
Jesus' death was God's plan, to show us how much God loves us, to prove that God can suffer and that he is stronger than evil. Darkness can be turned into light. It was also to express the forgiveness that God has for the human race and he will sacrifice his Son to save us from sin.
The sacrifice of Jesus on the cross was the last offering of the 'Lamb Of God' who takes away the sin of the world. Jesus was the new animal sacrifice. Death did not just cover sin, it redeemed sin. Those who trust in the Lord as their Saviour are saved and brought out of sin.
