Christians claim that Jesus shedding his blood on the cross was a necessary condition for the their god to forgive sins. However, the biblical texts, especially the Hebrew scriptures, say a number of different things about how the biblical god forgives sins -- many of which have nothing to do with blood sacrifice in general or Jesus in particular. In fact, many of the passages dismiss such sacrifices as unnecessary. It seems Jesus' "sacrifice" may have been unnecessary.
