The crucifixion is full of paradoxes. Shame becomes glory. Death ends in victory. Agony cannot overcome the hope of joy. In twelve lessons Jane Roach takes us to different aspects of the cross, showing us what the crucifixion meant to Jesus??and what it can mean to us. Why was it necessary? Why did Jesus embrace it? And how do we take up our crosses and follow him? Through Bible study, application questions, commentary, testimonies, and hymns, learn what the cross shows us about our Savior, and discover the hope and joy it gives us as we face life??s struggles.
