"I believe ... in Jesus Christ ... Who ... suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried; He descended into hell; on the third day He rose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of God the Father almighty; from there He will come to judge the living and the dead ... "
Jesus came into this world to show us how to love. He wanted to give His life for us. Jesus went to Jerusalem to die for us. Jesus died for our sins and rose so that we might rise too. This is the Redemption.
We are the sheep, and Jesus is the Lamb of God. Our sins are washed away by the blood of the Lamb of God.
