Discussions on Jesus (combining Was Jesus God & Jesus in the Bread)

Both these threads are covering about the same territory now and getting long again. Continue both threads here.

De Maria's picture

Did Jesus die? Yes. Did God die? No.

God is Spirit. God doesn't die.

When men die, their Spiritual principle separates from the body leaving the body without life. But man's spirit does not die nor cease to exist.

Jesus is man and God. Jesus did not pretend to be a man. He is a man and His human spiritual soul, which is part of His human nature, lived on after He died. And so did His Divine Nature.

Therefore, Jesus died just as any man dies. And He was resurrected just as they will be resurrected who persevere to the end.
