Who is more important to God the Father:
- Jesus His Only Son?
- The people Jesus died for?
This was posed to me today by a friend and I have no idea how to answer it.
If 1. is chosen, then it would suggest that it would be stupid for God to sacrifice His only beloved Son for people who don't deserve it. In other words the sacrifice of Jesus just would not have happened. e.g. If I have 2 cars of the same model, a good one and a not so good one, I would ALWAYS take parts from the bad one to put in the good one (if needed), never the other way around.
If 2. then what does that say about God the Father and His love for Jesus?
