The cross of Jesus Christ marks the dividing line of human history. The crucifixion was indeed a watershed event. The world hasnâ€™t been the same since Jesus died on the cross, and it never will be. Having endured a series of mock trials, Jesus became not only the victim of human injustice but, more importantly, the volunteer for divine justice. He died for our sins, satisfying the holy nature of a loving and just God. Through faith in Jesusâ€™ death on the cross we receive forgiveness, hope, and life. The tragedy of the cross is the triumph of Godâ€™s love.
