But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8 KJV
He died and rose so that we could live. Yes, Jesus lived, died, and rose from the dead so that you and I could live.
But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life. Romans 5:8-10 KJV
Why did He do It? Limitless Love.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16 KJV
