Matthew 26:17-29

There have been many attempts made to sanitize Easter. Recently, one Bible teacher said that forgiveness can be found in penitential prayer, repentance and acts of charity that would need no altar of sacrifice. But Jesus thought the altar of sacrifice was necessary. Easter portrays the cruel and savage bloody cross on which the Prince of Glory died. In order for reconciliation to occur, this was necessary. Today we will review why.
