     | 1,046 views

    By invoking the power of the Spirit and linking it to the Cross, Paul effectively dislodges one from any cross-less spirituality.

Christian art only gradually overcame the repugnance to realistic representations of the death on the cross. At first the cross was represented as studded with ...read more

    "No one ever spoke the way this man does." That was the assessment of the temple guardians who had been sent out to arrest Jesus. His speech left a lasting mark on their minds and hearts. What was it in Jesus' speech that transformed these men?
