Perhaps you could be more specific. What, exactly, are you wanting to know? The question in the OP is extremely broad for an Internet post answer to do it justice.

What is the Theology / Philosophy of Jesus' death?

To put to death our mortal bodies that are subject to sin and death so that He can raise them up in incorruption by His own resurrection.

I hope that helps.

Which is the great truth that His death should teach us?

Rom 6:3-13
Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection: Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin. For he that is dead is freed from sin. Now if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him: Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him. For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God. Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord. Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof. Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God.

Phil 2:6
Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;

I guess I am misunderstanding the question. I apologize.

I think your question could be resolved in the topic I started  a few days ago.
I was discussing something similar..
http://www.orthodoxchristianity.net/forum/index.php/topic,43994.0.html

The great truth is Jesus's teaching about God's love and His sacrifice for us & for our sins by dying and resurrecting back to life and ascending into Heaven to our Father as according to the Scriptures. It was God's way of reconciliation with his children,all of us,so we know exactly what to follow in order to be saved.

We needed to grow up spiritually, and couldn't and wouldn't do so. Jesus came down to set us straight.

We die, for one. It is not fitting for anthropos to die.

And how did he made us grow up spiritually?

He showed us that "greater love has no man than this, than that he lay down his life for a friend." That takes maturity.
