Why did Jesus die?

Posted in Devotionals at 11:14 pm by Sarah Bosse

Tonight I want to share with you a gem of a message I heard while driving this evening, delivered by Dr. Stephen Olford, titled “(I want an answer) Why did Jesus die?”  When you click the link to listen, remember two things:  there was nothing particularly attractive about Jesus – he was not rich, nor was he apparently handsome – that would have caused men/women to be drawn to him based on earthly status alone (Isaiah 53:2); and Paul, that great writer of Romans and other New Testament books, was a poor speaker (2 Corinthians 10:10).  These two men – one a saved sinner and the other both Man and God – were humble in appearance and form, yet the words they spoke were Life and Truth, and had the power to separate spirit and flesh (Hebrews 4:12).  Life came in a humble package.  This audio recording is not of very good sound quality, and I believe it was recorded quite a long time ago, but the Truths Dr. Stephen Olford presents are timeless and unchanging.

 

This sermon by Dr. Stephen Olford explains how Jesus’ death was:

* Voluntary

* Vicarious

* Verified

* Victorious

 

\”(I want an answer) Why did Jesus die?\”
