He did nothing wrong!

In today's daily bread Bible passage, one of the two criminals (or malefactors) said of Jesus, "We are punished justly but [referring to Jesus in the middle] this man has done NOTHING wrong." Luke 23:41

Then why did God the Father drive the Son to the cross, and put him through the punishment?

The episode that took place in the wilderness during the Israelites' journey to the Promised Land answers the question, for in Number 21:9 as people suffered from the snake bite, crying out to God for help, the Lord commanded Moses to lift up on a stake a bronze snake, commanding people to look up the snake and be healed.

Later, when Jesus came, through the Apostle John, Jesus himself explained the way of healing/salvation saying, "Just as Moses lifted the snake so also the Son will have to be lifted, so that whoever looks at him will have eternal life, for God so loved the world that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life." John 3:14-16
