A Note to First-Time Visitors

“Why did Jesus have to die?” On the surface, this seems to be a straightforward and rather simple question to answer, especially for a studied Christian. Simply put, you could respond with, “Jesus died for my sins.”

Upon closer examination, this simplistic response does not come close to addressing the depths of the question, particularly from the perspective of a person who knows little, or perhaps nothing at all, about Jesus.

In addition, many people believe Jesus did not die; they believe God took him directly into heaven and he did not experience death. What if they are wrong? What are the implications?
