Why Did Jesus Die?

In preparation for Easter, which is quickly approaching, Haden has begun to examine and debunk several theories regarding Jesus’s death (or supposed lack there of). In conjunction with this, I would like to walk us through some of the theories surrounding the atonement. First, we must define what we mean by atonement.
