What’s the point of Yeshua giving us this example of how to die? Why would He teach the world how to be humble by letting Himself get killed?
The point is that getting “saved” is not a one-time deal. It takes only a moment to decide to believe in Yeshua, but it takes a whole lifetime to learn what that means. In fact, Yeshua told us to count the cost before deciding to follow Him (Luke 14:26-33). He knew we would want to stay in our own little comfortable worlds and serve ourselves rather than serve God, so He explained from the beginning that following Him would take everything we have – including our lives.
