Jesus crucifixion, Unwanted Sacrifice? #1

Jesus crucifixion, Unwanted Sacrifice?

Now let us turn to the Crucifixion itself.

Here we are faced with another unsolved dilemma.

Jesus crucifixion – Jesus, as we have been told many times, offered himself voluntarily to God the Father and made a sacrifice for the sins of all mankind, which of course is for those who believe in Jesus.

 

 

Jesus crucifixion – However, when the time of fulfillment of his desires was approaching and finally the sparkle of hope for sinful humanity began to appear like dawn in the morning, as we turn to Jesus expecting to be able to witness the pleasure, excitement, and enjoyment that he felt at that very important moment in the history of humankind, how profound our disappointment and confusion.

It’s not that we get a Jesus who can’t wait for joyful cheers, what we see is a Jesus whimpering, crying, praying, and asking God the Father to keep the bitter cup of death away from him.

He really criticized a disciple when he got his disciple to sleep after experiencing a long run and suffering all night so dark that he did not pay attention to Jesus, his holy lord.

The Bible’s description of the event is as follows:

Matthew 26:36-43 New International Version (NIV)

Gethsemane
36 Then Jesus went with his disciples to a place called Gethsemane, and he said to them, “Sit here while I go over there and pray.”

37 He took Peter and the two sons of Zebedee along with him, and he began to be sorrowful and troubled.

38 Then he said to them, “My soul is overwhelmed with sorrow to the point of death. Stay here and keep watch with me.”

39 Going a little farther, he fell with his face to the ground and prayed, “My Father, if it is possible, may this cup be taken from me. Yet not as I will, but as you will.”

40 Then he returned to his disciples and found them sleeping. “Couldn’t you men keep watch with me for one hour?” he asked Peter.

41 “Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.”

42 He went away a second time and prayed, “My Father, if it is not possible for this cup to be taken away unless I drink it, may your will be done.”

43 When he came back, he again found them sleeping, because their eyes were heavy.

(Matthew 26: 36-43)

Jesus crucifixion – Thus, as the Christian story itself revealed, the prayers and requests of Jesus and his disciples were not granted by the Father, and inevitably, even though Jesus made his strong statement, he was finally crucified.

Was he the same person, the same innocent prince, and the role model of sacrifice who bravely offered himself voluntarily to bear the burden of all the sins of mankind on his shoulders, or was he someone else?

His attitude, at the time before the crucifixion and during the crucifixion itself, strongly casts a shadow of a doubt, about the identity of Jesus Christ and about the nature of the fairy tales circulating around him.

However, about that, we will discuss it later. Now let us return to the careful research that we left earlier.

Some other issues arising from the last screams of the suffering of Jesus Christ are as follows: Who has said those very poignant and touching prayers? Is Jesus as a human, or is Jesus as the Son of God?

If it is Jesus as a human being, who has been left, then by whom? And why? If we accept this choice, it will guarantee that until the last moment Jesus as a human being has an independent identity, which can think and feel freely and personally.

Did he die at the moment of the release of the spirit of Jesus God the Son of the human body he had occupied? If so, why and how?

If this is so and it is the human body that has died after the spirit of God left it, then the statement that appears is: Who has also been raised from the dead when the spirit of God comes back to the same body a few moments later?

Again, this choice will lead us to believe that it was not Jesus God, the child who felt suffering at that time, but the figure of Jesus as human beings who moaned in suffering in such a way, and it was he who felt suffering, while Jesus the Son of God watched it with an indifferent and indifferent attitude at all.

Then how can he fulfill the accusation that he is the God of the Son who has endured suffering for mankind, not the human figure who is in it?

Another choice is, we assume that Jesus the Son of God whimpers, while the human figure who is in him, might hope to start a new life for himself, witnessing with uncertain guesses, as long as the sacrifice made by Jesus the Son of God, then he, Jesus as a human, whether he likes it or not, also will killed on the altar of his innocent colleague.

What sense of justice has driven God to kill two birds with the same stone, maybe another mystery.

Jesus crucifixion – If it is Jesus the Son of God, and indeed he is according to the general agreement of the Christian churches, then the second problem that arises from the first answer is about the identity of the second party involved in Jesus’ words (Matthew 26: 39,42).

39 Going a little farther, he fell with his face to the ground and prayed, “My Father, if it is possible, may this cup be taken from me. Yet not as I will, but as you will.”

Matthew 26: 39

He went away a second time and prayed, “My Father, if it is not possible for this cup to be taken away unless I drink it, may your will be done.”

Matthew 26:42

There are two choices that are open to us:

First, God the Son spoke to God the Father, complaining that he had been left when he needed it.

This inevitably leads us to believe that they are two different figures who do not live together in one united personality, who are equally worthy of having all the qualities and apply them in parallel with a balanced share.

One figure appears as the grand referee, the strongest owner of the highest power to make decisions. The other, poor child of God, seems to have been completely revoked from him or may have temporarily been waived of his ownership rights over the characteristics of his father’s power.

The main thing that must be kept in mind is the fact that their conflicting desires and wishes appear to collide with each other the most during the final round of the crucifixion drama.

The second problem is whether the two different characters, with their individual thoughts, personal values, and personal capacities, feel pain and suffering if they are “two in one” and “one in two”? ”

So, another matter demands a long dialogue among theologians about the possibility that God is able to feel pain and punishment.

Even though He is able to do that, only half of God will feel it, while the other half (Jesus) is not able to do it, because it is already in its natural structure or absolute nature.

As we enter deeper into the shadow world of this twisted philosophy, the light begins to dim and fade, and we get confused for the confusion.

Another problem is, with whom does Christ speak, even though he himself is God?

When he speaks to his Father, he himself is an inseparable part of the Father, so we are told.

So what did he say and to whom? This question must be answered with a free common sense, without being forced by dogma.

It becomes a dogma only if it cannot be described in human terms. Based on the revelation of the Bible, when Jesus almost gave up his life, he moaned to God Father: “Why have you forsaken me?” Who has left,  Has God left God?

Who Has Been Sacrificed?

Jesus crucifixion – Another problem we must note is that the human figure in Jesus is not punished, nor should he be punished based on any logic, because he was never faced with the choice to shoulder the burden of humanity’s sin.

This new element, which entered into our debate, led us into a very strange situation that we were not aware of before.

People are forced to wonder about the relationship of human figures in Jesus with the inheritance of the tendency to sin, which is generally accepted for all children of Adam and Eve’s descendants.

At the very least, one can trust that in the dualism of God the Son and human figures who occupy the same body, only God the Son is pure from sin.

However, what about a human figure who lives with him?

Was he also born with the genes and traits provided by God?

If so, then he must behave like the character of God in Jesus and there is no acceptable reason if he is negligent in any way, on the pretext that he did that because he was a human being.

If there is no Tulan element in him, that is, in the human figure of Jesus, then we have to admit that he is just an ordinary human being [even] maybe half-human.

In addition, the human figure who has been united in Jesus must appear as a human who inherits a tendency towards sin. If not, why?

Obviously, it is pointless to say that as a man who is clearly separated from his Lord’s partner, he must have sinned separately with all the responsibility for sin on his shoulders as a human being.

This scenario would not be perfect without exposing Jesus the Son of God experienced death; it seems selfish enough for the sake of humanity but the main consideration may be for the half-sibling, the human figure in him.

Jesus crucifixion – All of this is very difficult, if not impossible, to digest it intellectually.

However, our perspective does not present such problems.

It was Jesus who was an innocent human figure – without his dualism – who had thrown in amazement and suffering.
