Why was gods son nailed to a cross-tortured and humiliated to get a message across. Why did god not just send his beloved son with a message and a warning-“this is your last chance-we’re wiping the slate clean but you must follow me“. Why the need for Jesus’ blood 🩸 why the need for such a barbaric death ordered by his own father-the merciful lord got. I just don’t get it. Jesus didn’t need to be murdered to get me to follow him.
God could teach, judge and forgive us without permitting his son to be tortured, but he chose the hardest way.
! COR 1:23 but we preach the Messiah crucified. He is a stumbling block to Jews and nonsense to gentiles,
To unbelievers the crucifixion is nonsense because there is no logical explanation to it. Again, God could forgive us without sacrificing his son. So, I believe God's intention is to show how costly is the forgiveness of our sins. Christ's blood is far more valuable than all the silver and gold in the world.
