There is absolutely no reference, suggestion or hint in the Bible that there is life on another planet — none. It is pure speculation to even consider it.

But for those speculating, the answer to the second question is no. Jesus would not have to die on each individual planet. Anyone who claims to believe the Bible will only be interested in what the Bible says and not another authority. So let’s go to God’s Word.

Colossians 1:20: “And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in Earth, or things in heaven.” Notice Christ reconciled all things unto Himself, whether on Earth or in the heavens.

Ephesians 1:10 says, “That in the dispensation of the fullness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on Earth; even in him.” Notice Christ gathered all things in heaven and on Earth.

And, finally, Philippians 2:10: “That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth.” Here again we see that everything in all the heavens will bow itself to its Creator and Redeemer. The Bible clearly teaches that there is only one God (Isaiah 43:10; Isaiah 45:5; 1 Timothy 2:5) and that He would only die once to redeem man for all time and eternity. “By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all” (Hebrews 10:10). “Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us” (Hebrews 9:12).
