Jesus while here on earth was only man, just man. Otherwise the whole theology is but a fraud.
one of my friends said this last night. do elaborate. i understand the premise that if he was really god he couldn't die or feel pain and the "sacrifice" is meaningless, but i'm not convinced this is a necessary assumption that god cannot feel pain, and that it is not possible that the flesh (the wholly man part) alone died and the spirit (the wholly god part) went to do his fight with death or what have you.
you know already how completely unimportant to me this is, but i'm really curious about the reasoning.
