Why did Jesus have to die on the Cross?

The Passion of the Christ is tremendously powerful. But why did Jesus have to die this way ?

God’s Word to humanity – the Bible – says that all people have sinned against God by breaking His commandments (i.e., lying, stealing, wishing you had what someone else does, sex outside of marriage, etc.). Even one sin committed against God is enough to separate us from Him for eternity. The Bible says in Romans 3:23, “For all have sinned, and fall short of the Glory of God.”

God knew that there was only one way to redeem mankind to Himself – once and for all. That could only be done through sending His Son, Jesus Christ, to earth to live a sinless life and die on the cross as a once-and-for-all sacrifice for all of mankind’s sins. Romans 5:8 states, “But God demonstrates His love toward us, in that, while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”

ADAM was created perfect before he became imperfect. Therefore, a perfect soul was necessary for the sacrifice.
No one was qualified, for all souls inherited imperfection from ADAM, except JESUS , who was perfect, blameless and without sin.
