Sacred Violence; or, the Necessity of the Cross

The giving of the Son to receive the violence of man on the cross (John 3:16) is the necessary step before man can receive the love of God in Jesus Christ at the resurrection.

The re-birth of humanity in the resurrected Christ depends on the death of a suffering servant through the violence of the cross. There can be no glory with the cross.
