"Why Did Jesus Die?"

Oct 31, 2021    Rev. Linda Taylor

Jesus died for both the atonement of our sins and as the path to become one with the body of Christ according to Paul, one of Christianity’s greatest influencers.

Father Rohr begins with this premise to reach his conclusions to this question of death:
It is not God who is violent. We are.
It is not that God demands suffering of humans. We do.
God does not need or want suffering – neither in Jesus nor in us.
