WHY DID JESUS HAVE TO SAVE US?
The Bible says that we are not able to fix our sin problem on our own.

. . . Romans 8:3
For Christ was offered once to bear the sins of many. Hebrews 9:28
WHY DID JESUS HAVE TO
BECOME A MAN?
The Bible says that since man sinned, a man would have to pay the penalty for sin.
Therefore in all things he had to be made like his brethren, that he might be a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people. Hebrews 2:17
WHY DID JESUS HAVE TO DIE?
The Bible says the penalty for sin is death.
And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission. Hebrews 9:22
For Christ also suffered once for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God . . . 1 Peter 3:18
WAS THAT THE END OF JESUS?

And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures. 1 Corinthians 15:4
. . . (Jesus), who has gone into heaven, and is at the right hand of God, angels and authorities and powers having been made subject to him. 1 Peter 3:22
WILL JESUS EVER RETURN?
The Bible says that Jesus will return to judge all people.
For the Son of man will come in the glory of his Father with his angels, and then he will reward each according to his works.
WHAT DOES JESUS WANT FROM US?
The Bible says that we must repent (turn) from our sins.
The Lord . . . is not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

CAN WE GET RIGHT WITH GOD SOME OTHER WAY?

the truth, and the life, no one comes to
the Father except through me.” John 14:6
