Fifty Reasons Why Jesus Came to Dieby John Piper
Synopses & Reviews
Bestselling author John Piper explores fifty things that Jesus accomplished through his death on the cross.
Why did Jesus Christ die? The central issue of his death is not the cause, but the meaning--God's meaning. Pastor John Piper has gathered from the New Testament fifty reasons--in answer to the most important question that each of us must face: What did God achieve for sinners like us in sending his Son to die? Fifty Reasons Why Jesus Came to Die was previously published under the title The Passion of Jesus Christ, and sold more than 1.8 million copies.
The most important questions anyone can ask are: Why was Jesus Christ crucified? Why did he suffer so much? What has this to do with me? Finally, who sent him to his sdeath? The answer to the last question is that God did. Jesus was God's Son. The suffering was unsurpassed, but the whole message of the Bible leads to this answer.
The central issue of Jesus' death is not the cause, but the meaning-God's meaning. That is what this book is about. John Piper has gathered from the New Testament fifty reasons. Not fifty causes, but fifty purposes-in answer to the most important question that each of us must face: What did God achieve for sinners like us in sending his Son to die?
