why did jesus have to sacrifice himself?
christians say its because that was the only way to get rid of sins.
this isnt correct in the context of the torah. sacrifices arent needed for the forgiveness of sins. prayers can suffice for that and also human sacrifice is strictly forbidden and jesus was human. also the sacrifice has to be offered in the temple otherwise its useless.
also its against the torah to punish an innocent for the sins of the guilty. probably the biggest concern is why is sacrifice even necessary.
