God’s Theology of the Cross

God’s Theology of the Cross

And what more shall I say? I do not have time to tell about Gideon, Barak, Samson and Jephthah, about David and Samuel and the prophets, who through faith conquered kingdoms, administered justice, and gained what was promised; who shut the mouths of lions, quenched the fury of the flames, and escaped the edge of the sword; whose weakness was turned to strength; and who became powerful in battle and routed foreign armies. Women received back their dead, raised to life again…  

Hebrews 11:32-35a (NIV)

In God’s sovereignty and wisdom, He often chooses to accomplish His purpose through weakness and suffering.
