"Is it just coincidence that the Greatest mind in the Universe (God's) came up with exactly the same plan (child-sacrifice) as the most primitive tribes of man? Killing children to appease is not the most noble or intelligent plan, alas!
You have not commented on the fact Jesus died for only 3 days. He got his life back. Doesn't matter if he is God's son or God himself as a modality of trinitarian form----3 days is just 3 days!!
What is the sacrifice in 3 days?"
I think it is worth noteing that at no time in either the OT or the NT did the Father say to the Son...My Son, My Son why have YOU foresaken Me...Jesus paid the price for man foresaking God...which begs the question, was it the Father's plan or God's plan?
