Hardly a big deal
Jesus' 'sacrifice' is really very underwhelming.
A few hours on a cross for an eternal being who knows that He is going to be wandering about Palestine a few days later and will then be sat at the right hand side of Himself again really is quite an embarrassing thing to get excited about.
I would have more repect for the Christian God if He had the integrity to apologise to mankind for all the horrendous suffering He has caused us through His ineptitude.

Re: ass,u,me
I suppose it would be difficult to trust Yahweh.
Of all the gods I have read about Yahweh really is portrayed as the thickest. I have had this image of Yahweh in my mind for a long time that he is the divine equivalent of the 'strange' cousin that no one mentions.
The other gods in the Canaanite pantheon must cringe when someone mentions Yahweh at their celestial dinner parties.
