Description

The day Jesus died, He asked a question. "Why?"

Jesus asked lots of questions. Not because He didn't know the answer, but to make us think and learn, in the same way our teachers might ask us questions. Jesus asked, so that we would learn the truth, that our Heavenly Father cares for us.

The 'why' that Jesus asked on the cross, teaches us that He was forsaken so that God could welcome us. Jesus asked because He was taking our place, dying a death that we deserved. Jesus was forsaken so that everyone who trusts Him would be welcomed by God, loved and accepted into His perfect home forever.
