That Jesus had to die to pay the price of the sins of the world. That everything had to go the way the Father planned. To come to this point John 12:32 And I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all people to myself.” Matthew 28:18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.
