One of the most difficult components in the story Christianity is the crucifixion of Jesus on the Cross. Some people don’t like the brutality of it, some people think it shows a weakness in Jesus that is incompatible with an all-powerful God, and some people just don’t get what it has to do with reconciliation with God. And for me, when I first came to believe in God and was warming up to Christianity, I couldn’t make heads or tails of this idea that Jesus had to die on the cross in order for mankind to be restored to friendship with God...

Well Jebus said 'If you live by the sword, you die by the sword', so as a carpenter, getting nailed to a plank of wood is pretty much him just fulfilling his own prophecy.

That video seems overly complicated
God is a god of not only perfect goodness but aslo a god of absolute justice
Meaning that he cannot forgive anyone of anything without that person paying his or her debt in full
Which would mean condemming us all to destruction given our inherently corrupt nature
So he sent Jesus to pay that debt on our behalf by crucifixion - if we choose to call on his advance payment for it

Better question: Historically, did Jesus actually exist or was he a fiction or amalgam of several other people?

He existed. Only Dan Brown acolytes (morons) believe otherwise. Even atheist scholars recognize Christ existed as an historical personage. Plenty of pagan and Jewish texts make reference to him.

A SEASONED JOURNALIST CHASES DOWN THE BIGGEST STORY IN HISTORY - Is there credible evidence that Jesus of Nazareth really is the Son of God? Retracing his own spiritual journey from atheism to faith, Lee Strobel, former legal editor of the Chicago Tribune, cross-examines a dozen experts with doctorates who are specialists in the areas of old manuscripts, textual criticism, and biblical studies. Strobel challenges them with questions like; How reliable is the New Testament? Does evidence for Jesus exist outside the Bible? Is there any reason to believe the resurrection was an actual event? Strobel s tough, point-blank questions make this bestselling book read like a captivating, fast-paced novel. But it is not fiction. It is a riveting quest for the truth about history s most compelling figure. What will your verdict be in The Case for Christ?
