Episode 76: The Forsaken God

This week, Pastor Riley and Kate examine the meaning of Christ's two natures in His sacrifice for us on the cross. The witnesses who mocked Jesus on the cross and told him to save himself provide the question: If Jesus is God, why does he suffer and die on that cross? Gods don't suffer, gods don't die. Therefore for sinful humans, there are only two options. Either Jesus is not really God and therefore could suffer and die, or Jesus is truly God, and he only hung on the cross in a ghostly spirit form. Of course, our salvation hinges on the truth that Jesus is truly both God and man, and that he made himself lower than the Father when he took on human flesh and humbled himself to die on a cross, as Paul says in Phillipians 2.
