School of Faith – Why did Jesus Die?

“Jesus died for us” is at the heart of the Christian faith.  The cross is the symbol of Christianity.  But when Jesus of Nazareth was hanging on a Roman cross 2000 years ago, what was going on?  Why was this more than the death of another ‘good man’?  What was God doing in allowing his Son to be executed?  How did this offer hope to humanity?

Five talks from Matt Frost exploring the question “Why did Jesus Die?”. Click on the arrows below to listen to the talks, each one in two parts.
