Today is the day we remember Christ's death on the cross.
He was betrayed, given a trial, beaten, and crucified. He was mocked and jeered. And all for what? The new covenant.
During the first Passover, the final plague was coming. The first born in every household was to be slain. For this to pass over the Israelite houses, each family killed a lamb and smeered the blood on the door frame. Likewise, God killed his only Son and atoned us through his blood so that the wages of sin might pass over us.
