Trinitarians claim that Jesus “died in his humanity, but not in his ‘Deity’, or ‘Divinity'”. Do the scriptures support such an idea? Are there any scriptures that say anything about such an idea? Actually, no, there are none. In fact, the scriptures contradict such erroneous ideas.
“Jesus Christ has come in the flesh”—1 John 4:2 NIV
“The Word [Jesus] became flesh and made his dwelling among us”—John 1:14
“He had to be made like them, fully human in every way”—Hebrews 2:17 NIV
Thus, the scriptures establish the fact that, on earth, prior to his death, Jesus was completely and totally human.
“Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God”—John 20:17
“He committed no sin”—1 Peter 2:22 NIV
“In him have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace”—Ephesians 1:7 NIV
“THE BLOOD OF JESUS, HIS SON, PURIFIES US FROM ALL SIN”—1 John 1:7 NIV
Thus “Jesus Christ, the Father’s Son” (2 John 3 NIV), was/is completely and totally qualified to die for our sins, and did not have to be Almighty God himself, as Trinitarians claim. The scriptures say nothing about any supposed “dual nature”, or “hypostatic union”, of Trinitarian imagination. In fact, if any part of Jesus had remained alive, he could not have died for our sins.
Could Almighty God die for our sins?—Not according to the scriptures!
“Surely you, Yahweh, are from ancient times, my holy God, who NEVER DIES!”—Habakkuk 1:12 NJB
“From eternity to eternity you are God”—Psalm 90:2 NAB
“The King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God”—1 Timothy 1:17 NIV
So, now, what do the scriptures say about Jesus dying “in his divinity/deity for our sins”. As we saw above, Jesus is no “God-man”, as Trinitarians claim. There is nothing in the scriptures even remotely resembling their claim that “Jesus is/was 100% human and 100% God at the same time”.
“CHRIST DIED for our sins”—1 Corinthians 15:3
“GOD RAISED THE LORD FROM THE DEAD”—1 Corinthians 6:14 NIV
“IN HIM DWELLS the whole fullness of DEITY bodily”, “GOD WHO RAISED HIM FROM THE DEAD”—Colossians 2:9,12 NAB
“IN HIM, in bodily form, LIVES DIVINITY in all its fullness”, “God who raised him from the dead”—Colossians 2:9,12 NJB
From the above scriptures, it is plain to see that “Christ”, “the Lord”, is “Deity”/”Divinity”, and he, as such, “died for our sins.
