    You miss the point. Jesus was not only the son of God, but he was also God personified, God on foot. He could have saved himself at any time, but that wasn't the point. He had to die with all of our sins piled onto him in order to give us salvation. It was a completely voluntary sacrifice.

    Think of it this way: The God of Creation (the same God who is the basis for Judaism, Christianity and Islam) asked Abraham (Ibrihim) to sacrifice his son Isaac to prove Abraham's faith in God. By sacrificing His own Son Jesus, God was affirming His faith in His creation TO all people. It's not that God couldn't save his Son, but that it was necessary for Him to sacrifice His Son in order to affirm His commitment to the covenant of the New Testament.

    Here's a counter question for you personally just_sad: if you acknowledge Jesus as being a great prophet, do you acknowledge his teachings to be equal to those of the prophet Mohammed? If not, why?

    Jesus died for the sins of all mankind, not just Christians. There were no Christians until He came, and they recognized him as The Christ.

    Just_Sad, I can really understand your being perplexed. It is hard for any of us with our mortal failings to understand that kind of love and sacrifice. But if you read Jesus' words in the New Testament for the Bible, he does explain it.
