The cross stands central in Chrsitian preaching. It holds a key position in the teaching of the Bible. The cross is also the power of God. This does not make sence to the world because the cross looks like weakness. It looks like helplessness. To the world the cross means a man was arested, given a quick trial, and executed. It appears to the world, if Jesus was really God’s Son, that God was unable to do anything. That is why Paul says the “word of the cross is the power of God.” Paul says the “gospel”, which is basically the proclamation of the good news of the death and resurrection of Jesus, is “the power of God for salvation” (Romans 1:16).
