Letters to the Editor

Not supported

To the Editor:
 
The statement made in Andleeb Ahmed's letter to the editor that Jesus' mission would have been a failure if He had, indeed, died from crucifixion is not supported by the quote Ahmed used from the Book of John.

In that quote, as Ahmed explains, "Jesus clarifies his exact mission" with the words, "I lay down my life for the sheep." Therefore, dying was Jesus's mission, and He completed it as He attested from the cross, "It is finished."

Through this stubstitutionary, atoning death, the lost sheep of Israel and the "other sheep" (gentiles) have the opportunity to be cleansed of sin, reconciled to God, and enter into eternal life.
