First the representations and predictions of the fathers of our faith.and the oracles of scripture to prove that Christ was to suffer and die for our sins. First in type, where we see Abraham offering up his son, his only son as a sacrifice unto God. (Genesis 22). Isaac is the sacrifice who bears the wood and a lamb is slain in his stead. therefore Isaac bearing the wood signified Christ the lamb of God, bearing the cross.When the fiery serpents by the Israelites and many people died, Moses by the command of God made a serpent of brass and put it on a pole and it came to pass that whoever was bit when he beheld the serpent on the pole, he lived (Numbers 21;9). Christ himself told Nichodemus, “As Moses lifted up the serpent in thew wilderness even so must the son of man be lifted up” (John 3;14).The paschal lamb did plainly signify the Lamb of God that taketh away the sins fo the World and the preparing of it did not only represent the cross but the command of the passover ordinance that also foretold Christs death. so we see the death of Christ thousands of years before his birth even was represented by the law and the prophets.Not only is Christ’s death burial and resurrection predicted and promised but it is also spoken by the prophets. Zechariah declared they shall look upon him whom they pierced (Zech 12;10). The prophet and king David declared by the anointing of the spirit of the Lord who spoke through him, they pierced my hands and my feet” (Psalm 22;16)The Romans and Jews crucified him and bore witness to his death. On the cross was witnessed the his death in Hebrew Greek and latin, “Jesus of Nazareth the king of the Jews” (John 19:19 ) So to deny Christ death is to deny Christs words, in scripture and to and through the prophets. through which he spoke.

Christ DIED for our sins… (1 Corinthians 15;3-8).

The punishment was paInful and shameful, torturous and barbaric. He died like countless many of others who for their faith died by the hands of the roman warlords who would have no other god but Ceaser, yet this man Jesus, was to to himself die for all men. No man would die for the sins of others except he be God, in the flesh, hence Christ died to bring salvation. Without him becoming our sacrifice mankind has no forgiveness of sins or redemption either. Christs death is an event witnessed by many as the bible tells, history reveals and man bears witness too as we shall see in the coming days.TBCPaul
