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?

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:
- "Questions asking for the truth or validity of a particular doctrine or belief (aka Truth Questions), and questions asking Is X a Sin? are not a good fit for our site, due to their subjective nature, and the vast number of possible Christian opinions on such topics. See: We can't handle the truth" – Flimzy, bruised reed, LCIII, Dick Harfield
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.
