where in the Bible (Not John please) that Jesus mentioned he will kill himself to forgive our sins?

First Jeus did not kill himself but I assume you mean that he would lay down his life so:
Sorry but I have to use John
John the Baptist referred to Jesus as the “Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world” (John 1:29),
And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life" (John 3:14-15).
Of course John 3:16
"Then Jesus said to them, 'When you lift up the Son of Man, then you will know that I am He, and that I do nothing of Myself; but as My Father taught Me, I speak these things'" (John 8:28).
"'And I, if I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all peoples to Myself.' This He said, signifying by what death He would die" (John 12:32-33).
When the Jews demanded that the Romans put Jesus to death, John points out that the death penalty selected fulfilled Jesus' own prophecy. "Then Pilate said to them, "You take Him and judge Him according to your law." Therefore the Jews said to him, "It is not lawful for us to put anyone to death," that the saying of Jesus might be fulfilled which He spoke, signifying by what death He would die" (John 18:31-32).
Several times Jesus spoke plainly about the death he would suffer, even though his statements were lost on his followers.
"From that time Jesus began to show to His disciples that He must go to Jerusalem, and suffer many things from the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised the third day" (Matthew 16:21).
"Now while they were staying in Galilee, Jesus said to them, "The Son of Man is about to be betrayed into the hands of men, and they will kill Him, and the third day He will be raised up." And they were exceedingly sorrowful" (Matthew 17:22-23).
"Behold, we are going up to Jerusalem, and the Son of Man will be betrayed to the chief priests and to the scribes; and they will condemn Him to death, and deliver Him to the Gentiles to mock and to scourge and to crucify. And the third day He will rise again" (Matthew 20:18-19).
"And He began to teach them that the Son of Man must suffer many things, and be rejected by the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and after three days rise again" (Mark 8:31).
"For He taught His disciples and said to them, "The Son of Man is being betrayed into the hands of men, and they will kill Him. And after He is killed, He will rise the third day." But they did not understand this saying, and were afraid to ask Him" (Mark 9:31-32).
"Behold, we are going up to Jerusalem, and the Son of Man will be betrayed to the chief priests and to the scribes; and they will condemn Him to death and deliver Him to the Gentiles; and they will mock Him, and scourge Him, and spit on Him, and kill Him. And the third day He will rise again" (Mark 10:33-34).
"And He strictly warned and commanded them to tell this to no one, saying, "The Son of Man must suffer many things, and be rejected by the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised the third day." Then He said to them all, "If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me" (Luke 9:21-23).
"Then He took the twelve aside and said to them, "Behold, we are going up to Jerusalem, and all things that are written by the prophets concerning the Son of Man will be accomplished. For He will be delivered to the Gentiles and will be mocked and insulted and spit upon. They will scourge Him and kill Him. And the third day He will rise again." But they understood none of these things; this saying was hidden from them, and they did not know the things which were spoken" (Luke 18:31-34).

No where. He never said he would kill himslef.
But he does say he will be killed by others.
Matthew 20:18, Matthew 26:2, Mark 10:33 and Luke 18:31-33 all record His prophecy of his death. (Plus some in John you ask not to list).
He states that the giving of his life is to ransom or save others in Matthew 20:28 and Mark 10:45.
These are all Jesus' own words.

What's wrong with John?
Joh 2:19 Jesus answered, "Destroy this sanctuary, and I will raise it up in three days."
Joh 2:20 Therefore the Jews said, "This sanctuary took 46 years to build, and will You raise it up in three days?"
Joh 2:21 But He was speaking about the sanctuary of His body.
Joh 2:22 So when He was raised from the dead, His disciples remembered that He had said this. And they believed the Scripture and the statement Jesus had made.
Joh 3:14 Just as Moses lifted up the snake in the wilderness, so the Son of Man must be lifted up,
Joh 3:15 so that everyone who believes in Him will have eternal life.
John 15:13 Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
Matt 12:40 For as Jonah was in the belly of the great fish three days and three nights, so the Son of Man will be in the heart of the earth three days and three nights.
Mat 20:28 just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life--a ransom for many."
Mark 8:31 Then He began to teach them that the Son of Man must suffer many things, and be rejected by the elders, the chief priests, and the scribes, be killed, and rise after three days.
Luk 18:31 Then He took the Twelve aside and told them, "Listen! We are going up to Jerusalem. Everything that is written through the prophets about the Son of Man will be accomplished.
Luk 18:32 For He will be handed over to the Gentiles, and He will be mocked, insulted, spit on;
Luk 18:33 and after they flog Him, they will kill Him, and He will rise on the third day."Source(s): http://www.standontherock.org/grace.html

First of all, it doesn't say anywhere in the bible that Jesus said" He was going to kill himself" He did not kill Himself, He was killed by the Jews who accused Him of being blasphemous. But, He did know that it was going to happen.

Jesus is the son of God interior an similar way that you and that i are the toddlers of God. it isn't any longer literal. imagine decrease back to the time the bible became written. maximum individuals couldn't even study. memories were created to make issues logical. Logical decrease back then isn't even on the point of an similar as logical is now. I propose, they used to bleed those with leeches for a fever! the only ingredient leeches are good for is extreme bruising and inner bleeding! the only those who ought to study were clergymen and individuals in skill. i imagine you may agree that non secular fanatics and individuals in skill are not from now on the most purpose, sure? besides, Adam isn't the son of God. he's OF God. there's a distinction. Adam became made from God's body... which heavily resembles paganism and mythology. it truly is a way of rationalization, no longer literal. i'm a baby of God, or maybe as God is my "father" my organic and organic father is a mundane guy (who became continually behind in his baby help funds). For Catholics, their priest is called "father." in case you learn anthropology, thousands of years in the past, kin relationships were no longer inevitably depending upon genetic ties. provide up attempting to study the bible actually. purely pay interest to the teachings, examples, and so on.

Give his life, or lay down his life (in John).

Nowhere!!! He never said He would kill Himself for anything or any one but that He would lay down His life for us. Big difference!!! You kill yourself, you are taking your own life but if you lay down your life for someone else, you are not taking your life but someone else is. One, YOU are in control, laying down your life, someone else is in control.Source(s): www.bibleuniverse.com
