That’s what Jesus said on the cross some 1,980 years ago.
That’s why “Holy Week” pictures like these are so sad.
Comment 66 is mine:
Thanks for the quality photos. As usual, they are first-class. I profit immensely from looking at the photos posted here each week.
The actions captured in these photos, however, simultaneously sadden and infuriate me. This is not pure Christianity as found in the Old and New Testaments. These are warped traditions that have turned the good news about Jesus Christ on its head.
For an explanation of why Jesus died (and why acts like self-inflicted wounds are not only unnecessary but actually offensive to God), see John Piper’s book The Passion of Jesus Christ: Fifty Reasons Why He Came to Die. Free PDF here.
