The gospel is that Jesus died for our sins, that he was burried and that he was resurrected on the third day. 3 parts. He died, he was burried, he was resurrected. Why exactly is it so important that he was burried? I mean the most important thing is that he was resurrected and that he died for our sins, right? And could these last 2 parts (burried & resurrected) not simply be subsumed in Jesus being God? I mean when you believe he is God then you also believe that he was resurrected, right?
