Most Christians believe Jesus is God. Scripture says there is one God, the Father. If this is so, when Jesus died on the cross did God the Father die also?
Most Trinitarians use this to summarize the Trinity:
- The Father is God
- The Son is God
- The Holy Spirit is God
- The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit are all distinct (not one of them is identical to the other).
Therefore, when Jesus died on the cross, God the Father did not also die on the cross.
