- How is Christ's death so significant? 11 answers
I'm very confused. I understand why Jesus died for us on the cross to pay for all of our sins and I understand how there had to be a virginal birth, so that Jesus could be perfect and without sin.
I'm so lost though as to why when God paid for our sins, the son had to do it? Why not the father? Is it related to the redemption covenant? I only briefly looked at that earlier. I'm new to the Bible and haven't looked in-depth at that yet.
