Who died on the Cross?

Hi all,

At our mid week bible study the Pastor said that God (as in the second person of the Trinity) died on the Cross. Instinctively I believed that to be wrong, and so I checked it out, first from the Word and then from trusted sources, I ended up with R.C.Sproul saying that it was impossible for God (the second person of the Trinity) to die, and John Macarthur said that God did die on the cross.I'm hoping that someone could shed some light on the subject.

Thank you

I believe that God did not EDITED BY MODERATOR

I believe that God did not die on the cross only his body died but not his spirit.Although we seen that he died it is only to prove to the world that he could give himself to the sin of all people.
