Why Did God The Son Have To Die?

Many believe that there is too much evidence in the Scripture against Jesus being diving in nature for Him to be God. One major reason is because Jesus died on the cross for our sins. So how could God die? If anything, doesn’t that mean that the Father is greater than or above the Son, Jesus? Join ArieRashelle as she searches through Scripture to understand why Jesus was the member of the Godhead (the Trinity) that had to die on the cross for all of mankind in her video, Why Did God The Son Have To Die?

Why Did God The Son Have To Die?

The Crucifixion of Jesus

32 As they went out, they found a man of Cyrene, Simon by name. They compelled this man to carry His cross. 33 And when they came to a place called Golgotha (which means Place of a Skull), 34 they offered Him wine to drink, mixed with gall, but when He tasted it, He would not drink it. 35 And when they had crucified Him, they divided His garments among them by casting lots. 36 Then they sat down and kept watch over Him there. 37 And over His head they put the charge against Him, which read, “This is Jesus, the King of the Jews.”
38 Then two robbers were crucified with Him, one on the right and one on the left.
39 And those who passed by derided Him, wagging their heads 40 and saying, “You who would destroy the temple and rebuild it in three days, save yourself! If you are the Son of God, come down from the cross.” 41 So also the chief priests, with the scribes and elders, mocked Him, saying, 42 “He saved others; He cannot save Himself. He is the King of Israel; let Him come down now from the cross, and we will believe in Him. 43 He trusts in God; let God deliver Him now, if He desires Him. For He said, ‘I am the Son of God.’” 44 And the robbers who were crucified with Him also reviled Him in the same way.
45 Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land until the ninth hour. 46 And about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, “Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?” that is, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” 47 And some of the bystanders, hearing it, said, “This man is calling Elijah.” 48 And one of them at once ran and took a sponge, filled it with sour wine, and put it on a reed and gave it to Him to drink. 49 But the others said, “Wait, let us see whether Elijah will come to save Him.” 50 And Jesus cried out again with a loud voice and yielded up His spirit.
