Jesus Had No Sin: 2 Corinthians 5:21, NIV This Bible verse about salvation tells us that Jesus had no sin, and that we can find righteousness through Christ and his sacrifice. The reminder that Jesus died for us — but that he did so without ever sinning despite facing temptations — offers us hope in our own struggles.
By his death , which is indeed the one and most true sacrifice offered for us, he purged, abolished and extinguished whatever guilt there was by which the principalities and powers lawfully detained us to pay the penalty. He offered sacrifice for our sins .
Most important, it involved a personal transformation from the inside out, so we could pursue the good and leave the brokenness behind. The proclamation of this message, eventually, got him killed. He offered a way out of our brokenness— our sins , to go back to ancient language—and was executed for it.
Jesus died at the age of 33 . For us that seems rather early and at the prime of life for many.
They will kill him, and after three days he will rise.” But they did not understand what he meant and were afraid to ask him about it. They will condemn him to death and will turn him over to the Gentiles to be mocked and flogged and crucified. On the third day he will be raised to life!”
And at the ninth hour, Jesus cried out with a loud voice, “Eloi Eloi lama sabachthani?” which means, “My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?” This is the only saying which appears in more than one Gospel, and is a quote from Psalm 22:1 (or probably Psalm 42:9).
Nietzsche , as a mid-19th-century German philosopher, first declared God dead in the context of this idealism. He might just as well simultaneously have declared “reason” dead. Indeed, he did just that.
Summary of Jesus’ life He was born to Joseph and Mary sometime between 6 bce and shortly before the death of Herod the Great (Matthew 2; Luke 1:5) in 4 bce. According to Matthew and Luke, however, Joseph was only legally his father.
Christian tradition holds that Gestas was on the cross to the left of Jesus and Dismas was on the cross to the right of Jesus. In Jacobus de Voragine ‘s Golden Legend, the name of the impenitent thief is given as Gesmas . The impenitent thief is sometimes referred to as the “bad thief ” in contrast to the good thief .
In the light of the resurrection, then, the general meaning of his death would be that the vicarious suffering and punishment of the man Jesus has robbed death of its character as judg- ment for human existence, and vindicated the hope of man that reaches beyond death .
Most denominations of Christianity teach that Jesus ‘ crucifixion happened just as described in the Bible. The crucifixion is important for Christians who believe that God sacrificed Jesus , his only son, to atone for the sins of humanity.
The reason is because He knew God had sent Him into the world for one reason: To become the complete and final sacrifice for our sins. The Bible says, “God made him who had no sin to be sin for us , so that in him we might become the righteousness of God” (2 Corinthians 5:21).
They calculate the death of Jesus as having taken place between AD 30 and 36.
The Virgin Mary, pregnant with the son of God, would hence have given birth to Jesus nine months later on the winter solstice. From Rome, the Christ’s Nativity celebration spread to other Christian churches to the west and east, and soon most Christians were celebrating Christ’s birth on December 25 .
Mary Magdalene as trusted disciple For its part, the Bible gave no hint that Mary Magdalene was Jesus’s wife . None of the four canonical gospels suggests that sort of relationship, even though they list the women who travel with Jesus and in some cases include their husbands’ names.
