Mel Gibson’s movie, The Passion of Christ, covered the last 12 hours of Jesus’ earthly life. It is not a movie I would watch for entertainment value, but I would watch it for love value.
For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son …” (John 3:16).
God gave Jesus because He loved us. The trial and death of Jesus shows us how much he loved us.
Jesus came to die on the cross for our sin. Though we were not there 2,000 years ago, our sins killed Jesus just the same.
