...h a Roman flogging
and crucifixion – some of the most brutal ways to be tortured and executed in human history!
There’s lots of atheist memes on the internet making digs at this idea of what it means that Jesus sacrificed himself. “Jesus came back to life, so he basically sacrificed 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.
