    Gods don't have to be immortal... Jesus died, and like Odin, he was reborn.

    The generic tool of describing Gods as immortal is a simple way to imply that they are better, or more transcendent than Humans (their creators).

    With regards to the Norse Gods, the day of their demise is Ragnarok

    The norse gods die because their world ends. In fact it is not alone the norse who discuss the death of their gods. Plutarch in his On the Cessation of the Oracles describes how an Egyptian named Thames was told to announce the Death of Pan off the coast of Italy, and as well he describes horrible lights and thunder above the Isle of Britain which a visiting Greek Philosopher was told signified the death of a "Great Spirit" which may have meant God. The Norse Gods are replaced by new gods, the Sun explicitly by her daughter and indeed we can expect the New World to look much like the old. So the gods will be reborn and in that sense are indeed immortal.

    Read, at least the Prose and Poetic Eddas.
