  • They say God would not let Jesus be Crucified


Think about it

Think about it

  • If salvation is only a matter of rewarding those who do good, and if God’s purpose was only to test Abraham’s obedience, why then was there a need for ‘a momentous sacrifice’? Was it not sufficient that Abraham went as far as he did?

  • Who provided ‘the momentous sacrifice’?

  • Is a goat enough to ‘ransom’ humanity for our sins?


Islam

  • Jesus told about his death before he died and he fulfilled all that the prophets had said about the one who was to come to take the sins of the world.

  • Jesus was our perfect lamb, ‘the ransom,’ the one who came to take our place. When we accept Him, we know that when we die we will go to heaven.
