The message Christians bring, is that God loved the world so much, He gave His Son Jesus Christ to die on the Cross, so that whoever believes in Jesus will not perish but will have everlasting life.
On the Cross Jesus’ blood was shed for us. In His sacrificial death, Jesus took our place and He received the punishment we deserve because of our sin. He then rose from death on the third day as was prophesied hundreds of years earlier and was recorded in the Old Testament.
The Bible shows us what was obtained for us by Christ’s death on our behalf. In the New Testament when the Bible speaks of, “The blood of Christ,” or “the blood,” the reference nearly always refers to Jesus’ death on the Cross.
