“The cross changed everything.”

After spending three months in the Old Testament leading up to Jesus, and one month in the Gospels leading up to Jesus' death, we arrive this week at the pinnacle of the story of human history. All history up to this point was anticipating and leading up to the cross. All history since this point has existed in light of the cross. The cross changed everything.
