Scripture Reading: Luke 23:32-38
Some people consider the cross as mere folly, as nothing more than the tragic ending to a good life that was caught in a tangled web of political and religious gamesmanship. “If Jesus was God,” they scoff, “what was God doing on the cross?”
Others reinterpret the cross for our modern times, giving it an extreme makeover through religious syncretism, sentimentality, or by reducing it to a mere symbol. Still, others believe the power of God flows through the cross to save us from eternal damnation.
To the Corinthians, Paul writes, “For the word of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God” (1:18).
