The Passion and the Cross
By Martin Robinson
Originally published as Why the Cross?, this book uncovers the subtleties of one of the most influential aspects of Christianity - the death of Jesus on the cross. It explores sacrifice, evil and sin in relation to the cross, as well as the themes of ransom, freedom and the love of God. Through the accessible text and end-of-chapter study questions the reader will discover how the crucifixion prompted Old Testament study in the early church as well as how each Gospel defines the Crucifixion contextually and Paul's reasoning for the crucifixion. Ultimately, Robinson (Invading Secular Space) informs the reader of what the cross of Christ has to offer to modern believers.
Sometimes we have heard the story of the crucifixion so often
that we fail to realize what actually took place.
But when the Holy Spirit reveals to you the depth of Jesus’
sufferings on the cross
and the spiritual significance
of His death,
you will experience freedom in a new way in your life.
I. Mark’s account of the cross vividly emphasizes Christ’s agonizing sufferings
and death (Mark 15:1-40).
A. Jesus on the cross was Christ’s response to man’s
need of a redeeming Savior. Sin required His
substitutionary death, once and for all.
Who Put Jesus on the Cross? And Other Questions of the Christian Faith
By A.W. Tozer
The chapters of this book were originally preached as sermons at Southside Alliance Church in Chicago. Whether spoken or written, Tozer's words were designed to "promote personal heart religion" among God's people. Contains such sermons as-"Who Put Jesus on the Cross?", "How Can a Moral Man Ever Find Saving Truth?", "What is the Supreme Sin of a Profane Society?" and others. 202 pages, softcover from Wingspread.
The cross was a Roman form of execution symbolizing that
the one who died in such a fashion was cursed.
The death of Jesus on the cross, and the death of anyone on the cross,
involved tremendous suffering, both physically and emotionally,
before the person ultimately expired.
The death of Jesus on the cross and His sufferings expressed His
love and commitment to, and for, all mankind, regardless of
race, gender, nationality, or socioeconomic status (John 3:16; I Timothy 2:4;
John 4:9, 10).
Consider the sufferings of Jesus on the cross.
