It is the central drama of human history --- a riveting story of love and agony. The Cross Purposes: Exploring God's Reasons for the Cross delivers a sobering examination of what took place 2,000 years ago when, naked and bleeding, Jesus Christ hung between Earth and Heaven in torment and died.
Cross Purposes, based on the book by the same title from D. James Kenndy, Ph.D., and Jerry Newcombe, explores the physical, emotional, and spiritual horror of the Cross, Old Testament prophecies of the Cross, the blood Atonement, the New Covenant, and more. Numerous fascinating Cross-themed questions are answered to silence liberal scholars who dismiss as mere myth the Gospel claim that Christ's death made God's forgiveness possible.
Cross Purposes also features a moving personal account from Dr. Kennedy on the transforming work of Jesus Christ in his own life. Other experts assembled on the program include Dr. Paul Maier, professor of ancient history at Western Michigan University; Knox Theological Seminary experts Dr. Warren Gage and Dr. Samuel Lamerson; Dr. Michael Youssef of the Church of the Apostles; and Shroud of Turin expert Dr. Alan Whanger, among others.
Together they explore Jesus Christ's remarkable accomplishment on the Cross, why He did it, and the incredible price He had to pay.
