Divine sacrifice

First published in Letters

IN response to Amtul Karim’s letter about the mission of Jesus. (Your Say 30/12/13).

I think it needs to be said that the main reason Jesus came into this world was to die – and later to rise again.

The message of Christmas is that God Himself visited a sin-cursed world to be the sinless sacrifice which alone could redeem sinful man.

One thing that confuses me about the Christian religion: Judas Iscariot is vilified for betraying Jesus for 30 pieces of silver yet if he done so then Jesus wouldn't have died on the cross - which according to Christian teaching was essential to save us all from our sins and give us eternal life. So with this in mind, shouldn't Christians be thanking Judas for enabling this to happen?

Typo alert in my above question: "yet if he done so" should read "yet if he hadn't done so...":) Sorry!
