Why Did Jesus Die? To Kill Sin

  1. 1. Ernie & Rohan PrabhakarWhy Did Jesus Die?Kingsway Rose GardenApril 28, 2013Kingsway.usSan Jose, CA
  2. 2. New City Catechism• Q24: Why was it necessary for Christ, theRedeemer, to die?• Since death is the punishment for sin, Christ diedwillingly in our place to deliver us from thepower and penalty of sin and bring us back toGod.• By his substitutionary atoning death, he aloneredeems us from hell and gains for us forgivenessof sin, righteousness, and everlasting life.
  3. 3. A Brief Confession
  4. 4. St. Paul
  5. 5. Romans 5:6-10 (NIV)You see, at just the right time, when we werestill powerless, Christ died for the ungodly.Very rarely will anyone die for a righteousperson, though for a good person someonemight possibly dare to die.But God demonstrates his own love for us inthis: While we were still sinners, Christ died forus.
  6. 6. Since we have now been justified by his blood,how much more shall we be saved from God’swrath through him!For if, while we were God’s enemies, we werereconciled to him through the death of his Son,how much more, having been reconciled, shallwe be saved through his life!
  7. 7. Romans 6:3-10 (NIV)Or don’t you know that all of us who werebaptized into Christ Jesus were baptized intohis death? We were therefore buried with himthrough baptism into death in order that, just asChrist was raised from the dead through theglory of the Father, we too may live a new life.For if we have been united with him in a deathlike his, we will certainly also be united withhim in a resurrection like his.
  8. 8. For we know that our old self was crucifiedwith him so that the body ruled by sin might bedone away with, that we should no longer beslaves to sin— because anyone who has diedhas been set free from sin.Now if we died with Christ, we believe that wewill also live with him. For we know that sinceChrist was raised from the dead, he cannot dieagain; death no longer has mastery over him.The death he died, he died to sin once for all;but the life he lives, he lives to God.
