Where was the big sacrifice?


Q: Okay, it’s my understanding Jesus got up after being dead two days, and started walking around like nothing ever happened.

That’s all well and good.

Here’s my big question though: Where was the big sacrifice?

It was a really short death.

How was he able to atone for all church folks’ sins, past, present and future, with so short a death?

A: If you were God, heretofore comfortably ensconced in heaven … spending some 34 years in an ordinary human body, living in 1st century Palestine … a putrid backwater of the world, under Roman occupation … culminating in excruciating suffering and death … would indeed constitute a real and personal sacrifice … no matter how long Jesus might have remained dead.
