JESUS DIED AND FOR MANY HE WILL ALWAYS BE DEAD. Life Is Only Lived By The Living. The distinction is beyond the grasp of the atheist and the unbeliever, because they think that everybody is like them, born merely to die.
The short answer to the question: Jesus died to reconcile humans to God.
This reconciliation was required because humans were separated from God due to the fact that they had been kidnapped and taken into captivity through the deception of disobedience of faith; in other words, sin.
Estranged, humans do not know their Heavenly Father and spend the rest of their lives on Earth looking for Him; even if they do not know it and invent fables, as they speed towards their own deaths.
The redemption of humans required a ransom to be paid before they would be released from captivity. Adam had relinquished his authority over the Earth to the Devil and, because of this, legal redemption to recover ownership by God was also required.
Here are five reasons why Jesus died:
Jesus died to pay the specified price as a ransom for the human race that the Devil took kidnap through deceiving Eve and causing Adam to follow his voice by being disobedient to God’s voice.
Jesus died to recover ownership of the Earth after it had been deceptively stolen by causing Adam to hand his authority to reign on the planet over to the Devil.
Jesus died so that every man and women could be reconciled to God because they had been born into a world governed by sin that was separated from Himself.
Jesus died so everybody from that time forth could have an inheritance that was willed to them as a result of His death.
Jesus died to demonstrate the righteousness of God.
There are other reasons that can be stated to explain why Jesus died, but the following Scriptures from the Bible corroborate the five assertions made above concerning the reasons Lord Jesus Christ died.
Jesus gave himself as a ransomforall people. This has now been witnessed to at the proper time. (1 Timothy 2:6)
He did not enter by means of the blood of goats and calves; but he entered the Most Holy Place once for all by his own blood, thus obtaining eternal redemption. (Hebrews 9:12)
Not only is this so, but we also boast in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation. (Romans 5:11)
For this reason Christ is the mediator of a new covenant, that those who are called may receive the promised eternal inheritance—now that he has died as a ransom to set them free from the sins committed under the first covenant. (Hebrews 9:15)
God presented Christ as a sacrifice of atonement, through the shedding of his blood—to be received by faith. He did this to demonstrate his righteousness, because in his forbearance he had left the sins committed beforehand unpunished—he did it to demonstrate his righteousness at the present time, so as to be just and the one who justifies those who have faith in Jesus. (Romans 3:25–26)
