    Jesus’ sacrifice is the means by which God delivers, or saves, humankind from sin and death. The Bible refers to the shed blood of Jesus as a ransom price. (Ephesians 1:7; 1 Peter 1:​18, 19) Thus, Jesus said that he came “to give his life a ransom for many.”​—Matthew 20:28

    Jesus Christ died a real and agonizing death, but it could not compare to the infinite punishment for sin he suffered before his arrest. He died so that he could resurrect himself -- and all of us -- into physical life, health, and immortality.

    This doesn't negate the fact that he died and gave up his life. Your eventual resurrection wouldn't make YOUR death unimportant or meaningless.

    While a true man, He did die and earthly death, but rose on the 3rd day, as True God in the body of man, since He could and did violate the laws of the impenetrability of matter.

    These questions become meaningless once you realize all religion and supernatural thinking is bunk.

    The human being Jesus died what was resurrected was a totally new creature neither Spirit nor flesh and blood it was a hybrid of the two. When it was taken up into heaven it fully became a spirit and lost all Earthly attributes for the time being.

    You're confused. Jesus was God and Man. His human nature suffered, died, and was resurrected. God can't die.

    NO, Christianity is a lie. Because Jesus never died.

    He was pronounced dead at the cross and was laid in a tomb for 3 days.

    His human body did absolutely die- just like ours will someday.

    But His Spirit continued- just like ours will.

    He went to Hell (the price God demands for sin) and then He rose again so that we can too:)
