You asked: Do you believe that Jesus died on the cross?
Thanks for this note to us here at TruthBook. It's an odd question,
since you are asking it at our site which is dedicated to The Urantia
Book, and most especially to Part IV of that book, The Life and
Teachings of Jesus. But perhaps you are among those who question the
life and death of Jesus - even the fact of his existence.
Yes, I do believe that Jesus died on the cross. Do you NOT believe
that? In The Urantia Book, we read more about the crucifixion than has
ever been known before; the reasons for it and the excruciating details
of it, from beginning to end. It is not for the faint-of-heart, but is
presented as the stark reality that it was.
In light of this question from you, I can only assume that you have
not read The Urantia Book as yet. I hope you will have a look at it. Here's an introduction, in case you are unfamiliar
with it and its amazing teachings.
And, here is a link to The Life and Teachings of
Jesus, Part IV of the book. There is a Table of Contents there that
you can explore at your leisure. Additionally, here is the link to the
Paper on the Crucifixion.
Once you know more about Jesus - who he really is, why he really
came here, and what actually happened to result in the tragic events of
his death - I hope you will nevermore doubt. The Urantia Book
presents Jesus quite differently from any and all traditional
portrayals of him in Christianity. Jesus transcends all earthy
religions, but his true gospel holds the greatest hope for all
humanity. He taught:
" in an age to come the gospel which I declare to you will
rule this very world."
I want to assure you that it is not necessary for your salvation that you believe any of this, but
knowing Jesus better, and learning the matchless truths presented in
The Urantia Book will be an invaluable aid to you as you go forward in
your spiritual life.
The story of Jesus and his true identity - the story of his amazing
life and tragic death - are part of our history, yours and mine.
Knowledge really IS power, and understanding Jesus is knowledge of the
