Doctrine: Cross - God Dies
“Doctrine” seeks to trace the big theological themes of Scripture along the storyline of the Bible. Each month in 2020, we will be releasing a set of content – a one-hour teaching, Q&A, re-written e-book chapter (in English and Spanish), and lecture notes – related to each chapter of the newly re-written “Doctrine” book. We pray it will be beneficial to you as you study the Bible and dive deeper into who God is.
In August, the topic is the cross. While ruling and reigning in Heaven, Jesus was experiencing our dream and left it all to enter our nightmare. Everything we want to get off of us is what Jesus put onto Himself by entering this world. Like a firefighter running into a burning building that everyone else is running out of, Jesus chose to put Himself in harm’s way to pull us out of harm’s way. He did not have to do this, and in doing it He showed us what love really is.
