Who died on the Cross?

Oberland's picture

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

Who died on the Cross

I found all the answeres interesting and some very good.

Why did Jesus Christ come in the first place? And what was He trying to fulfill?

The Flesh died on the cross, the SEED , ( From the Holy Ghost) didn't. This Seed is the seed that will come back as " King of Kings and Lord of Lords", Jesus Christ, the Second Person of the trinity. The entire Bible is about a King and a Kingdom.

Amen and Amen
