The Shame of the Cross

March 18, 2022   •   Isaiah 53:1-3 Philippians 2:5-8 Genesis 2:25 Genesis 3:7-10 Hebrews 12:1-3 1 Peter 2:4-6

Shame is a very raw, acute, and distressing feeling. We experience shame when we’re humiliated by our own sinful behavior. Jesus had no sin, yet he too knew shame— the shame of the cross.  It’s another aspect of the cross that will help us comprehend the fullness of Jesus’ sacrifice. Together we’ll discuss the relationship between sin and shame in Scripture. We’ll study passages that help us revisit how Jesus experienced shame and unpack why it was necessary for our salvation.
