Ugh... do I really have to explain this?

According to Christian beliefs... Jesus Christ died on the cross for the sins of mankind, because he loved mankind.

The Israelites nailed him to the cross because the high priests considered him a threat to their own personal power.

(Not askin' ya to share our beliefs, just to respect them. :P)

There is something I can't really understand much, sorry if the question is stupid, but why did Christ had to die to save us? I mean, couldn't he have done it other way?

Life is a truly precious gift, and Jesus was willing to forfeit His for our sakes. While the Bible states quite clearly that Jesus could have avoided it if he wanted to, Jesus chose to die for the sake of mankind.

As for why He chose for it to be done that way, I honestly don't know. I suppose it's something we may never find a conclusive answer to, like how the laws of physics exist, or how planets are kept in orbit.

I think he did it to demonstrate to us humans the scale of his sacrifice, since we are humans and he brought himself to our level so we can understand it better.

Now I could be off here but...

In the Bible I believe in there is a statement somewhere that says that you will have eternal life if you are without sin. This of course became impossible after the events in the Garden.

However, Jesus (the Son of God, who was without sin) choosing to die on the cross allowed for him to take the sins of others onto himself basically. Giving others the opportunity to have eternal life after the resurrection (even though they had sinned and thus would have gone to Hell).

lol it's complicated... but I'm pretty sure that was the general principle of it. :)

Expanding on what you three have said (CrazyOldTeenager, Cognosco and MattmanDude) Jesus had a choice. It was his decision to die for humanity. John 10:17-18 The death was both symbolic and fulfilment of prophecy and was clearly planned for a while. If you don't see the parallels with Isaac and Christ then you need to re-read your Bible!

Gotquestions.org

Christ was the sacrificial lamb for us creating a new covenant. The old one was for a time when society was different but as society progresses so must everything else. The New Covenant was always planned since the fall of man.

Also the death of Christ and later his resurrection has complete meaning within it. It's not a sad or confusing thing. It's triumph over evil and death.

Something about the way you said "The New Covenant was always planned since the fall of man" made me realize I spend way too much time playing Halo. XD
