The full wonder of Jesus' death & resurrection becomes apparent when we realise how pivotal they are in God's overall plan of salvation.
Angelic Rebellion & Human Rebellion Resulted In Christ's First Coming
The problem of angelic rebellion in heaven and the ruin of God's perfect creation on earth through the disobedience of Adam and Eve at satan's instigation required the inauguration of God's kingdom-rule through Christ's victory over sin, death and satan at the Cross and resurrection.
