Did Jesus Come to Earth to Die?

Q. Did Jesus come to earth to die?

A. Yes. Jesus repeatedly declared that He had come not to do His own will, but the will of His Father as God’s means of redeeming a fallen, sinful world. Four different times He told His disciples that He would be put to death (see Matthew 17:22–23; 16:21; 20:12–19; 26:2; Mark 9:30–32; Luke 9:43–45).
