The cross is still to come – Luke 22:1-24:53 and Matthew 26:1-28:20

The main purpose for Jesus’ life on earth was to open a way for us to the Father.

This purpose of Jesus’ life involved Him dying on the cross, and then to be raised to life from the dead. This resurrection enables us to access God, His Father.

In Genesis 3:14-15 God said to Satan he was going to lose and His son Jesus was going to win the war between Satan and God over mankind.
Read the Gospels of:
• Luke 22:1-24:53
• Matthew 26:1-28:20
• Mark 11:1-16:20
• John 12:1-21:25

Some of these events are explained within the module on the three and a half years of His ministry.
Look in the book of Revelation to see who wins.
