Why did Jesus die? And in what ways did his crucifixion offer redemption to the world? These question lie at the very heart of the Christian faith and remain a pressing concern for theological reflection.
In The Cross in Contexts, Palestinian theologian Mitri Raheb and American New Testament scholar Suzanne Watts Henderson explore the meaning of the cross in light of both first and twenty-first century Palestinian contexts. Their unique partnership forwards insights coalescing around themes that expose the divine power of the cross both for Jesus' first followers and for contemporary readers alike.
