Many People Suffer. What’s the Big Deal with the Cross?

Apr 17, 2019

In our day, there is often confusion about the nature of the cross and the necessity of Christ to suffer death upon it. If God is all-powerful, isn’t his suffering just a fiction? Is sin really that serious? Couldn’t God forgive mankind simply by a wave of his hand? This week, Vince and Jo answer questions about whether Jesus’ death on the cross counts as true suffering in light of his eternal life, and why blood sacrifices were required in the Old Testament.
