"The Cross was the manifestation of Divine love without reserve or limit;
but it was also the expression of man" s unutterable malignity." [Sir Robert Anderson]

"It is the crucifixion that distinguishes the new message from the mythologies of all other peoples." [Martin Hengel]
"Yes, Calvary" s cross and the crucified Christ surely speak, "God does care, God does want to share, God does want to bear your sins and your sorrows." [Dr. Fred Barlow]

"...death was not Jesus" penalty; it was His destiny. It was not His lot in life; it was His mission. It was not His unavoidable fate; it was His purpose statement for coming to earth that first Christmas: "Born to die." [Bill Crowder, The Path of His Passion]

"Our old history ends with the cross; our new history begins with the resurrection." [Watchman Nee]

"Tomb, thou shalt not hold Him longer;
Death is strong, but Life is stronger;
Stronger than the dark, the light;
Stronger than the wrong, the right;
Faith and Hope triumphant say
Christ will rise on Easter Day."Phillips Brooks, An Easter Carol

"The highest act of love is the giving of the best gift, and, if necessary, at the greatest cost, to the least deserving. That" s what God did. At the loss of His Son" s life to the totally undeserving, God gave the best gift - the display of the glory of Christ who is the image of God." [John Piper]

"Altruism is written in everlasting and resplendent character on the Cross of Christ, and it was at Calvary that the centre of life was shifted from selfishness to sacrifice." [John Weber]

"The way of the cross is the way of suffering. Christians are called to die, not kill, in order to show the world how they are loved by Christ." [John Piper]

"Remember, the Savior offered His forgiveness to others before they wanted it...

The Redeemer" s first word from the cross is a prayer not for those who are lovable, but for those who are thoroughly detestable."[Andrew W. Blackwood, Jr. - Comments on Jesus statement "Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do."]
