  • There is an old Russian saying, “You are born, You suffer, and You die.” Why? The Bible says that the wages of sin is death. Everyone has sinned so all deserve death. Except one man, Messiah Yeshua, who lived a perfect sinless life. So then, why did Yeshua suffer a cruel crucifixion and death on a cross? Most of Christianity believe that the Messiah became their sins and suffered the death they deserved. Christians believe that Messiah Yeshua was a substitution sacrifice and paid their sin debt to save them from Eternal Damnation. But, the sorrowful burden of bearing the Truth belongs to Messiah Yeshua. So, what is Truth?
