The Curse of the Cross
March 11, 2022 • Deuteronomy 28:1-19 Deuteronomy 21:22-23 Galatians 3:10-14 2 Corinthians 5:21 Isaiah 53:4-11
Crucifixion was a particularly gruesome way to die, but when Jesus died on the cross it wasn’t just gruesome, it was cursed. Seeking to understand the cursed nature of the cross leads us to make connections between the Old Testament and the New Testament, between our deep-seated guilt and the extreme cost Jesus paid to set us free. We were rightly cursed by God for our failure to keep his covenant, but Jesus became that curse to pay our debt. Join us as we study Scripture to better understand the meaning and implications of the curse of the cross and consider the implications for our lives of faith today.
