Notwithstanding fairly twisted and bizarre interpretations, what Christ taught was forgiveness, not death.

From what I understand, the people of the old testament were incapable of living under any kind of a law but the old law of Moses. When Christ arrived, the people, as a society, had matured enough where they were capable of living something a little higher. The law of Moses was not a law of salvation. It was a law of preservation. You couldn't be saved under the law...but the society and "civilization" could be kept alive until Christ would one day arrive.

2 Nephi 10:3
3 Wherefore, as I said unto you, it must needs be expedient that Christ--for in the last night the angel spake unto me that this should be his name--should come among the Jews, among those who are the more wicked part of the world; and they shall crucify him--for thus it behooveth our God, and there is none other nation on earth that would crucify their God.
