So, even though none of the writers were there, they know for sure Jesus was born of a Virgin and that there was a star that guided the Magi. They know for a fact Jesus turned water into wine and walked on water. They know for a fact that he healed people of leprosy and blindness of other infirmities. They know, because they could very well have witnessed it, that Jesus was crucified. They know, because many did witness it, that Jesus showed himself to be alive after being crucified.The crucifixion of Christ is not a supernatural or extraordinary phenomenon. It is consistent with known history and why would the Christians make it up? Coming back to life 3 days later and then ascending through the stratosphere is anything but ordinary.
Or, only the Virgin Birth, which is not a supernatural or extraordinary phenomenon? and the crucifixion are true and consistent with known history. So the writers didn't make those two events up, but they did make up all the other things about Jesus? But, when they told of people being raised from the dead and the blind receiving sight and that Jesus walked on water and was resurrected from the dead... those stories, although they never happened, the writers made them up to tell a "symbolic" message?
But what is the Christian explanation of why Jesus had to die on the cross? Baha'is want nothing to do with that, because the Christian writers say it was to pay for the sins of all humanity. No one else could do it. It had to be a perfect sacrifice, and only Jesus could be that special person. They go on to say how he conquered death and the devil and all the rest. The rest of the things that Christians believe that the NT writers teach is ignored and has to be ignored by Baha'is, because it makes Jesus the only one who could of paid the price to save humanity from the devil and hell. None of which Baha'is believe is true.
So then, what's the big deal that Baha'is believe the Virgin Birth and the Crucifixion of Jesus? They reject pretty much everything else about what the NT claims to have happened. If the Baha'i Faith is true, then nothing is really all that important about the story of Jesus... no hell, no devil, no resurrection, he didn't walk on water and all the rest. It's just an elaborate, embellished story about a person his followers made into a God/man. Or, it's all true and we need Jesus to be saved. Although I disagree with some of the Baha'i explanations, I'd rather have them be right than the Christians. But my favorite is still reincarnation. I know I can do better next time. All I need is a few more chances at getting it right.
