On this special Good Friday edition of Bold Steps, Pastor Mark Jobe will present a unique and powerful look at the death and resurrection of Jesus. Author Max Lucado wrote, “The cross rests on the timeline of history like a compelling diamond. Its tragedy summons all sufferers, its absurdity attracts all cynics, its hope lures all seekers. History has idolized it and despised it … gold-plated it and burned it … worn it and trashed it. History has done everything but ignore it. And how can you ignore a piece of lumber that suspends the greatest claim in history? Its bottom line is sobering. If the account is true, it is history’s hinge. PERIOD. If not, it is history’s hoax. That’s why the cross of Jesus Christ is what really matters.” The cross is vitally important because it didn’t reveal the death of a martyr … or a good leader. The Cross means way more than that. It was predicted centuries before it happened … and you can’t ignore it!
