Suffering, Death and New Life — 2 Comments

  1. Kim
    My thoughts are not as based in history as yours. However, here is one, for what it’s worth. My belief is that Jesus died, simply to fulfill the early scriptures – that it was all part of God’s plan to show how great, wonderful, and powerful God is (and what values we should live our lives by). I see Jesus more as a messenger with special powers than as an equal to God.
    … for what it’s worth.

  2. Thanks for your comments, Al. Your response raises lots of interesting questions. “What is the nature of God’s power?” “Who was Jesus?” “Did Jesus really come to fulfill the Hebrew prophecies, or did people make those connections only later?” “Was Jesus a particularly wise or powerful sage, or did he have a divine nature of some kind, and if so, what kind?” Big questions. I’d be interested in others’ thoughts.
