...eans that Jesus sacrifice
d himself. “Jesus
came back to life, so he basically sacrifice
d his weekend for you”, or similar types of jabs, totally missing the point.
Typical atheist meme
So what did Jesus sacrifice
if he only lost his life temporarily?
Everything about his pre-incarnate self.
Where once a spirit, now a glorified body.
Where once only divine, now fully God and fully man.
The incarnation had eternal consequences for the Godhead.
wasn’t just about dying, it was about taking on our humanity eternally. The eternal God now united forever with humanity. Jesus
wasn’t only the “visible image of the invisible God”...
