Reason to Die

Many Jews...believed in him. So the chief priests and the Pharisees called a meeting of the council. “What are we doing? This man is performing a lot of miracles...everyone will believe in him. The Romans will take away our position and our nation.” Caiaphas...chief priest that year, told them, “You people don’t know anything. It is better for one man to die for the people than the whole nation to be destroyed. As chief priest...He prophesied that Jesus wouldn’t die merely for this nation, but would die to bring God’s scattered children together and make them one. (John 11:45, 47-52 GWT) Jesus died that we may be one. One with God and with one another. ©Word-Strong_2013
