What’s So Important About The Cross?


It’s kind of a big deal.

Easter weekend is just behind us – if you’re not a Christian but have spent some time around the church, you might be curious as to why the cross comes up so much. It might seem odd that we celebrate God sending his son to die so much, sing about it when we meet together, and talk about it so often. The answer is partly in what follows – that three days later he rose from the dead – and this isn’t some unthinking belief in a religious legend, but an event supported by many of the facts we have available. Jesus most definitely lived – and if he rose from the dead, that alone should give us pause for thought.

But that isn’t all there is to the cross. The New Testament is full of passages about why Jesus died in this way, and all that he accomplished in submitting to such a humiliating demise. This one is a bit less visual than many of my posts – but please take some time to read through some of these passages. Jesus’ death on the cross and subsequent resurrection are the fulcrum on which the whole narrative of the Bible turns.
