A Volunteer For Sacrifice


In The Hunger Games, each district sends a randomly selected tribute to fight to the death in an arena-style reality show. The winning district receives some extra food. When her younger sister is selected, Katniss volunteers to go. This sacrificial act became the central focus of the capital city and the entire country (Suzanne Collins, The Hunger Games [New York: Scholastic, 2008]). Jesus sacrificed himself so that we can be forgiven and live forever.
