I have heard people say “Jesus didn’t really die on the cross.” They say that Jesus never spoke of dying for people. I have also heard people say that Jesus is not God. I would be really nice if this was clarified.
Yes, Jesus death on a cross was real. Yes, Jesus spoke of dying for people. Yes, Jesus is God.
Here are some verses from the Bible that state these facts:
Jesus died on a cross: Matthew 27:32-50; Mark 15:21-37; 23:26-46; John19:16-37.
Jesus spoke of dying for people: Matthew 17:9; Mark 9:9, 31; 10:34; John 12:23-33.
Jesus is God: Matthew 3:16-17; 17:1-5; 26:63-64; 27:43, 54; Mark 1:11; 9:2-7; Luke 2:26-35; 3:22; 9:28-36; 22:70; John 1:1-2, 14; 7:28; 8:58; 10:33; 14:6-7; 14:9-11; 16:28-30; 17:1-26; 20:24-29-31.
You can trust Jesus with your life for now and for all eternity! He speaks truth. He is the way, the truth, and the life (John 14:6).
