Famous Last Words

It is, perhaps, impossible to explain what happened on the cross on Good Friday. We try to set out arguments that explain it all, using words like atonement, sacrifice, or “paying the price.” Yet, it is presumptuous to think we can explain away the crucifixion like we do so many other things. During Lent, we will not so much explain the crucifixion as we will explore it. We will wander through the last words of Christ – Famous Last Words – each of them giving us a glimpse into the wonder of the crucifixion.
