One definition of irony is, “an outcome of events contrary to what was, or might have been, expected.” Talking about the cross in 21st Century North America is vastly different from talking about the cross in 1st Century Corinth. To think that God would allow his son to suffer the indignity, humiliation, and shame of death on a cross was almost unthinkable to a person familiar with the use of crosses for public execution. ip info . For Jesus to say that one who would follow him must take up their cross daily is laughable until we realize that he is serious. To view the slide show of methods of execution I referenced in the sermon this morning click here. (You many need to click the link “Continue Gallery” to get past the ads.) I find these images disturbing but they do put into context why “the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing” (1 Cor. 1:18).
