This is the only thing I am confused on. I know most view his decision as a sacrifice when he was crucified but he was being punished regardless. My question is basically on the fact that I don't get how any kind of sacrifice can clear people. Why was it necessary to go to extremes? If it was to prove who he was or this new way it seems a bit extreme but perhaps I am viewing this wrong? I am the kind of person where I cannot accept things i do not understand so therefor I try to understand it the best I can.
So his blood has cleansed the sins of the people who lived during that time correct? And if we believe in Jesus as the son of God then we are cleansed of our sins? I don't see how he died for his people. I don't see how his death has anything to do with sin. If anyone can be of help clearing this up I would appreciate it.

The punishments that you speak of were prophecies in the OT- Isaiah and Micah. Popzaroo pretty much took the words right out of my mouth. Great explanation and bible versus
