The Sacrifice for our Sins

 
At the age of 33, Jesus was literally nailed to a wooden cross and died a brutal, public death by Roman crucifixion. His death was again the fulfillment of prophecy…the required payment for the sins of mankind. In yet another fulfillment of prophecy, Jesus rose from the dead three days after his crucifixion and burial, and now sits forever at the right hand of God the Father in Heaven.
 
But he was pierced for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with his wounds we are healed. 
Isaiah 53:5
