Jesus depended on God during his time on earth and still depends on him even now in heaven. Jesus died, thus he is not immortal. Claiming that only impersonal human nature died cheapens our Lord’s sacrifice. What makes Christ’s death for…

Jesus, God’s Agent

https://youtu.be/LKT42qHiJu8 By [wbt_preacher_link preacher="Sean Finnegan"] God works through agents whether messengers or deputies.

Complete Salvation
