The Heart of the Cross

by

Sermon delivered by Rev. Dr. Larry Maley at Dardenne Presbyterian Church, November 12, 2017

“The Heart of the Cross”

First of five sermons on the ‘Meaning of Christ’s Cross’

Scripture: Psalm 103:8-14 and 1 Peter 2:21-24

I invite you to examine a painting by Holman Hunt entitled ‘The Shadow of Death.’ (Copies attached to manuscript.) It depicts the inside of a carpenter’s shop in Nazareth. Stripped to the waist, Jesus stands by a wooden trestle into which He has placed His saw. He is lifting His eyes toward Heaven, and the look on His face is either pain or ecstasy, or both. As He does so, the evening sunlight streaming through the open door casts a shadow on the wall behind Him. The shadow is the form of a cross, with the tool-rack portraying a crossbeam. At His feet lies a red headband, symbolizing the blood-soaked crown of thorns which one day would be shoved unto His head.
