Who Bore Burden For Jesus?
This article covers the answer to the question: “Who Bore Burden For Jesus?“
According to the Christian doctrine, Jesus died on the cross as a sacrifice for our sins. The idea here is that every human is born with sins, or that all humans will sin, and therefore it was necessary that someone as pure as Jesus would be crucified to nullify these sins. The question is; why does anyone have to die for our sins when God, the All-Merciful, could as easily give us forgiveness if we ask for it? Isn’t God the one who makes the rules? Why does He have to make someone suffer for our sins or for someone else’s sins? Isn’t that unjust of Him? According to the Bible, the way to redemption could be obtained without the need for sacrifice.
Who Bore Burden For Jesus?
A friend asked me;
‘Does anybody know of another person than Jesus who is said to have claimed to be sinless (no “burdened soul”) himself and to atone for men’s sins (to “bear another’s a burden”)?’
Children are sinless unless you believe children who don’t survive go straight to Hell for not declaring Jesus as their savior.
Since children are sinless, then if we look into the Gospel of Matthew, all the children of Bethlehem bore the burden of Jesus, they died in the place of Jesus.
In Matthew 2:8 we see the jealous king Herod send out people to hunt down and locate Jesus.
“Then he sent them to Bethlehem with these instructions: “Go and make a careful search..”
In Matthew 2:13, an angel warned Jesus and his family that Herod was trying to find and kill Jesus;
“An angel of the Lord appeared in a dream to Joseph and said, “Herod will be looking for the child in order to kill him”
In Matthew 2:14, Jesus and his family hide in a different country to avoid being killed, now King Herod is still searching for Jesus and can not find Jesus so King Herod orders every boy in Bethlehem killed in an attempt to kill Jesus.
“He gave orders to kill all the boys in Bethlehem and its neighborhood who were two years old and younger-this was done in accordance with what he had learned from the visitors about the time when the star had appeared. (Matthew 2:16)”
King Herod in the Bible did not go after Jesus in Egypt (which could easily have been done), because he assumed Jesus was still in Bethlehem, so King Herod murdered all the innocent boys in Bethlehem in hopes of also killing Jesus while Jesus safely stayed in Egypt.
Therefore there were many who were sinless and bore the burden of others. Jesus was saved with the blood of the children of Bethlehem according to the Bible. They died so that Jesus could have life according to the Bible.
If Jesus’ was meant to be a blood sacrifice as the modern Christians claim then he would not have hidden when the Jews were trying to kill him.
According to the Old Testament, blood sacrifices must be the age of [[one year old]] (Exodus 12:5), therefore we clearly see that Jesus’ intention was not to be a sacrifice because he was not captured by the Jews until he was over thirty years old (Luke 3:23).
If Jesus had allowed himself to be captured as an infant, then he would have been qualified as a sacrifice according to the Bible and would have saved the other children of Bethlehem, Jesus clarified that his purpose was not to be a Sacrifice by avoiding death at the age of one.
Actions speak louder than words.
Moses who was a mere Prophet saved all the children of Israel when Pharaoh was oppressing them, why then would Jesus whom Christians claim is a god, abandon the children of Israel when he was the direct cause of the search?
This shows that Jesus was sent to earth to remind to the Jews of the teachings of God and the Day of Judgment, showing that Jesus was no more nor no less powerful or knowing than other prophets.
