The Million Crucifixions of Christ

Alternate title: Christ's Crucifixion: 1,000,000 A.D.

Since Jesus already died once for humanity, would that prevent him from dying a second time if it ever became necessary? If free will is really free will, the mystery of sin might reappear thus making it necessary for Jesus to die to save humanity, in a million years say, all over again.

If this is true, what prevents Jesus from having died previously a million years ago? Had he never died at least once then the possibility of him dying again or having died before would not be even a remote possibility. Such a conjecture would carry no weight whatsoever. When you think about it, there's something mysterious and intriguing about God, in the person of Jesus Christ, dying. Normally the very concept of God brings visions of a being that doesn't die, that cannot die. In the human incarnation of Jesus of Nazareth, only then was God, able to die, only to live again by God's very self.

In order to be intimately associated with all of his created beings, does Christ, in some form or other, also die as one of the other sentient species that inhabit our universe?

Has Christ, in fact, died on a million different worlds, to a million different intelligent species? In similar manner, will Christ come again to each of those million different worlds? What makes us think that we're the only intelligent species for whom Christ died?

Are there a million different Bibles on each of the million worlds where Christ also died?

Mike, good to hear from you again. Yes, you're right; we have problems we need to attend to here. But I'm obsessed with other realities and the worlds of If. Thanks for sharing your number insights. Take care and continue to enjoy your soccer games.
