Crucifixion - a pretty dismal and gory event in and of itself but when it is the Son of God and everyone is mocking Him, somehow it seems even worse. Now put Jesus to death hanging on a cross between two criminals that join in the mocking and somehow it seems worse. But from all of this comes an amazing, eloquently simple gospel message. We know the beginning of the story in Eden and now we see the supposed end at the cross. What is really happening is a story of repentance, grace, and redemption. Simple, right? Listen once, twice, often. Be blessed.
