Cries from the Cross

A Journey into the Heart of Jesus

“Were you there when they crucified my Lord?” The obvious answer to this question is no, since the crucifixion took place centuries ago. However, Pastor Lutzer argues that we were, in fact, there—for it was on the cross that we were redeemed.

The heart of Jesus is revealed through His last words on the cross. Through the exposition of these sayings, Pastor Lutzer helps us to better understand the words of Bonhoeffer: “it is not before us, but before the cross that the world trembles.”
