Growing in Faith

Why Did Jesus Have To Die?

Why did Jesus have to die? Death is a bodily reality. As such, the Theology of the Body provides a brilliant light on the mystery of death and, more specifically, on the hope for resurrection. Scripture tells us that death entered the world through the envy of the devil. . . So why did Christ, free from all the effects of sin, have to die? He did so in order to conquer death and restore the body to its destined glory.
