"Since Christ was Jesus’ oneness with God (theosis), the death of Christ on this earth is (like Jesus) the death of every man’s personal oneness with God. This is the death of the one (person or self) ‘who’ knew and experienced his oneness with God. This is the death of his entire earthly identity. Though a body remains, in truth, it is ‘nobody’."
"All this means is that the eternal Christ is no particular individual person or ‘who’ someone is. To become God’s own universal human nature and participate in God’s divine nature, every particular person has to die. To become Christ means to become God’s own human nature and not the humanity of this or that person."The Real Christ, Chapter: Death of Christ
(From Patricia: These are "hard sayings". I encourage everyone who wants to understand it more fully to read The Real Christ.)
