Seeing the old year out and the new year in

If so, then what days did they keep as festivals? What are the Festivals of God?

    The Greatest Sacrifice

    Most people are aware that Jesus Christ was crucified and died for our sins some 2,000 years ago. But why was that necessary? Why did He go through the horrible suffering He experienced?
