But these are written so that you may continue to believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing in him you will have life by the power of his name.

VIII. MAIN BODY:

A. In crucifixion, Son of Man's honor was manifested.

"The time has come for the Son of Man to enter into his glory"

the glory is glorious indeed, but the entrance is by the way of the Cross. The Cross carries the shame with it, because during those times, the cross is the capital punishment for the worst criminals of their time, and since the LORD JESUS CHRIST took our place, we are the worst criminals but the LORD JESUS CHRIST made a way for us, so we can be Perfect and blameless in GOD's sight.

Matthew 10:38 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

If you refuse to take up your cross and follow me, you are not worthy of being mine.

Colossians 1:20 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

and through him God reconciled everything to himself. He made peace with everything in heaven and on earth by means of Christ’s blood on the cross.

There's no other way to salvation except the cross of Calvary, everyone needing salvation from his sins, need to go that way, it's a Must!!

Colossians 2:14-15 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

He canceled the record of the charges against us and took it away by nailing it to the cross.

In this way, he disarmed the spiritual rulers and authorities. He shamed them publicly by his victory over them on the cross.

Other religious cult thought the LORD JESUS CHRIST was a failure because He died, but the other way around, He was victorious thru the Cross.

Hebrews 12:2 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, the champion who initiates and perfects our faith. Because of the joy awaiting him, he endured the cross, disregarding its shame. Now he is seated in the place of honor beside God’s throne.
