Without the birth, we would have no Jesus. Without the death, we would have no example. Without the resurrection, we would have no salvation. Without Jesus, we would have nothing.
He had to have obedience to begin the process.
He had to have patience to bear the garden and the disciples.
He had to have stamina to bear the beatings.
He had to have commitment to bear the cross.
He had to have love to take all our sins.
He had to have power to rise from the dead.
He had to have a view of the future to appear to the disciples and others.
He had to follow the plan to the end to go to sit on the right hand.
He had to be Jesus. No one else would have done.
"He is not here for He is risen. Come see the place where the Lord lay."
"O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?"
