θάνατος — thanatos
- Physical or spiritual death: death.
- Death of the spiritual part in man, practically the annihilation of personality: death
In a bitter twist that brought the world to its knees, stunned and questioning, the Son of God hung tortured and dead. All our hopes were pinned on him: angels sang at his birth, the Holy Spirit descended on him at his baptism, he cast out demons, healed the sick, raised the dead — he was going to save us.
And he’s dead.
He’s not like Westley, mostly dead. Jesus was completely and utterly gone.
How bitter a disappointment in what we had been told was the Epic Saga of Redemption.
Our hero, dead.
