Bible Text: John 19:16b-22 | Preacher: Nathan Willard | Series: Narrative Lectionary Year 4, Speaking Christian

All of Christianity goes through the cross. The cross is not the end of the story. The suffering of Christ is not the whole of Christ’s story. But Christ’s story goes through the suffering. Without Christ being excluded, isolated, and killed for challenging the empire of Rome, how would we know that God was with us in our moments of deepest isolation?
