Every year Christmas and Easter are celebrated with great excitement and enthusiasm. Great sums of money are spent on advertising, on gifts, parties, holidays, and church ceremonies - to celebrate, we are told, Christ's birth in the first holiday, and His resurrection in the second. Have you ever wondered why there is none of this celebration about His death?


In the Bible - in the four Gospels - more is written about the death of Christ than about any other single event in His life. God apparently wants to emphasise His Son's death! - while man seems to want to smother it. Why this conspiracy of silence about the death of Christ? Could there be a sense of shame that the only sinless and perfect man who ever lived on earth was cruelly murdered by those He had created and whom he had come to save?


The evidence for this murder would be accepted in any law court. Pilate the Roman governor and Herod the king both admitted that they found no fault in Him. Judas the traitor said in remorse, "I have betrayed the innocent blood." The repentant criminal crucified beside Jesus said, "This man has done nothing amiss." The pagan Roman officer in charge that day said, "Truly this was a righteous man."


Ask yourself, "Why then was Christ crucified?" Was it merely another miscarriage of justice?


What happened at Calvary showed how wicked and sinful man really is. In fact man condemned himself when he savagely insulted, flogged, and nailed to a cross this man already declared innocent and righteous!


But is that all? Was it just a blunder, just a mistake ? The Bible answers this question with an emphatic No! It was really part of God's plan to save us from the penalty of our sins.


The Bible tells us clearly, "Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners" (1 Timothy 1.15). It is also clear that it was not, and is not, Christ's life that would save us, for we read: "Christ died for our sins" (1 Corinthians 15.3); "We are reconciled (to God) by the death of His blood" (Romans 5.9, 12).


But it goes further than that. It becomes very personal- for the writer of Galatians 2.20 states, "The Son of God loved me and gave Himself for me."


He had accepted this Saviour as his own. Many people the world over have also done this.
