Good Friday 2017: What the Cross Reveals

My sermon on Good Friday.  It really is two things in one–first, a bit of teaching about the anti-Jewish language in John’s Gospel, and after that, thoughts about the importance of the Cross.

The teaching portion is in part adapted with permission from an essay by the Rev. David Kilian, formerly of All Saints, Brookline, MA.

The Douglas John Hall quote which gives the structure to the second half is from The Cross in Our Context: Jesus and the Suffering World, Fortress, 2003, page 89.
