Why did satan kill Jesus? Here's a thought presented in my bible study group tonight. Why did satan kill Jesus? Satan tempted Adam and Eve so he could "take control" of this world in a way. Do you think that he originally tempted Adam and Eve to sin so that Jesus would come to this Earth? Because if satan knew that if Jesus was coming then he could tempt man to kill Jesus. Do you think that satan thought he would be able to take over the heavens by doing so? Of course satan only thinks for his self and can't see the big picture; therefore he lost the battle of killing the Son big time, but I was curious to what your guys' take is on this.
