Sin and Jesus Christ's Sacrifice

We know that Jesus Christ gave His life in our place as a sacrificial offering for our sins. But if a sacrificial death was all that was required, why did He have to go through so much suffering? What do we learn from the agonizing suffering He went through before His death?

    Such a beautiful message. Devastating but oh, so beautiful. Our dear Savior has done all this for me, a poor wretched sinner. Thank you so much for this message!

    This is a common misunderstanding. The details are spelled out in our booklet Jesus Christ: The Real Story. You can find those details at this link under the subhead "What Was the Cause of Jesus' Death?"

    Mr Ashley, thankyou for this sermon. But Im not sure why you state that Jesus Christ was not dead before the soldier pierced him and that it was this piercing that caused him to die from loss of blood. John states very clearly that He had already given up the spirit (John 19:30) prior to the piercing, which aligns perfectly with all the other gospels, and that He was already dead (John 19:33). There is no confusion here and then he says he was witness to all of this. Yes Christ must have died from loss of blood but I imagine this is from the grotesque scorging that teared His flesh from His bones, then the point of a spear. Can you please clarify? Thanks, Linda
