Yeah, except for the fact that it's taking the Bible completely out of context.
Here are my thoughts on that:
The Death + Resurrection of Jesus:
We all have done something wrong in our lives. Sure, we didn't get the death penalty for lying, but it still was wrong to do that. Well, the wrong that we do is sin and if we sin we are deserving of death. Eternal Death.
Romans 6:23 says, "For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord".
Romans 5:10 says, "For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of His Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by His life."
However, God loved us so incredibly much that He didn't want us to die so He sent Jesus His Son. Believe it or not, but Jesus is God in the Flesh. I know what you're thinking, "Wait they killed God?!" And yeah, they did (or thought they did: they killed His earthly body). However, God wanted to prove that He has power over "death". So He rose again. No, He's not a zombie that wants us to symbolically eat His flesh. If He's the all powerful God (which He is), then it stands to reason that He cannot die(which He can't). Makes since.
Now a guy just takes a bullet for you. Would you not love that guy forever? I mean seriously this stranger just died to save you! I don't care who you are, you'd love Him. You'd have to!
Lets sum it up now:
We are supposed to die.
He saves us with His life (earthly life of course)
However, He is God and has power over death so he is resurrected by His Power and Glory proving that He has power over death.
All He asked in return was for us to remember the sacrifice that He made by eating some bread. Jesus said, "This is my body given for you: do this in remembrance of me." and, " This is the cup of the new testament (agreement of covenant) in my blood, which is shed for you." (Luke 22:19, 20 KJV)
No, Jesus is not some zombie. He is an awesome God who proved His love for us by paying the price for our sins AND conquering the power and fear of death.
