Calvary

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. (John 3:16 ESV)

Historian’s concur that the crucifixion of Jesus occurred during the 1st century AD. The New Testament accounts that Jesus, the Son of God and Messiah, was arrested, tried, and sentenced by the Roman Procurator Pontius Pilate to be scourged, and finally crucified at Calvary. In Christianity this event is referred to as the Passion, in which Jesus' suffering and redemptive death by crucifixion forms the very centre of Christian faith and academic orthodox theology concerning the doctrines of salvation and atonement.

Jesus' crucifixion is generally described as a linear narrative in the canonical gospels and also referred to in the New Testament Epistles. It is also attested by other non-Christian ancient sources and established as an actual historical event.

On a philosophical note God (as a procession) entered into the 'human lifeworld' through the life of Jesus Christ and allowed himself to become a fully capable, all covering sacrifice for every transgression of mankind. In effect the creator by his life paid for everything so that in his name we can be forgiven from any and all sin. In simple terms God 'died’ through Jesus but at the same time cannot die because His existence is beyond the ‘lifeworld' in-which he became a sacrifice. God paid the price through his Son as a procession into our reality, died for a moment,  but in essence cannot die. As humans it is very difficult for us to understand this apparent paradox, because we are currently in this physical world. The best way we can understand this paradox is through the concept of Trinity.
