DID JESUS CHRIST DIE IN HIS “DEITY”, or “DIVINITY?

DID JESUS CHRIST DIE IN HIS “DEITY”, or “DIVINITY?

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.

3 thoughts on “DID JESUS CHRIST DIE IN HIS “DEITY”, or “DIVINITY?

  1. The controversy about the trinity is easily solved. The trinity is just a team of three persons. One of them (Jesus) was probably real, and the other two (God and the Holy Spirit) are hypothetical.

    You said “From the above scriptures, it is plain to see that “Christ”, “the Lord”, is “Deity”/”Divinity”, and he, as such, “died for our sins.”

    This cannot be true. If God did exist, he would never implement a system of atonement where one person paid for the sins of others. Instead, he would implement a system of perfect justice where all persons paid for their own sins. God would establish perfect individual accountability. Unfortunately, Christianity violates this basic principle.

    Actually each person dies as a result of his own sins, which is only fair.
    “The one who sins is the one who will die”—Ezekiel 18:4
    “The righteousness of the righteous will be credited to them, and the wickedness of the wicked will be charged against them”—Ezekiel 18:20 NLT
    “The wages of sin is death . . . “—Romans 6:23a
    Yes, it is only fair that each person pays for, and dies for, his/her own sins.
    “No one can redeem the life of another or give to God a ransom for them—the ransom for a life is costly, no payment is ever enough–so that they should live on forever and not see decay”—Psalm 49:7,8 NIV
    Humans have no way out of the predicament of eventual eternal death, at least not on their own!
    However, the good news is:
    “. . . but the gift God gives is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord”—Romans 6:23b
    “God presented Christ as a sacrifice of atonement, through the shedding of his blood—to be received by faith”—Romans 3:25
    This choice is up to us to a large degree.
    [All quotes NIV]

  3. RT2: Actually each person dies as a result of his own sins, which is only fair.

    GW2: According to Genesis, God brought death into the world as a punishment to Adam and Eve and their descendants. But death is the same for everyone, and therefore it could not be a punishment from God for anyone’s sins. Any punishment from God would be varied and proportional.

    RT2: Humans have no way out of the predicament of eventual eternal death, at least not on their own!

    GW2: It is unlikely that anyone will ever escape death.

    RT2: However, the good news is:
    “. . . but the gift God gives is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord”—Romans 6:23b
    “God presented Christ as a sacrifice of atonement, through the shedding of his blood—to be received by faith”—Romans 3:25

    GW2: This cannot be true. If God did exist, he would never arrange for the torture and death of his own son and would never set up a system of atonement. Those would be immoral acts, and God would be perfectly moral. Instead, he would implement perfect justice. It is impossible for Christianity to be true.
