Easter Saturday: Why did Jesus have to die?

If you don’t mind your scholarship mixed with faith, and some of us would have it no other way, George Athas is a blogger to follow. Hos latest post Why did Jesus die? is particularly good – and just right for this in between day. Do read it, his style is clear sharp and punchy, and the content mixes scholarship and faith into a fine blend.

Between the sadness and focus on death of Good Friday and the joyful exuberance of Easter it is a question worth reflecting on. And unless you are a NT scholar likely you will learn something too!
