Ravi Zacharias: "Without The Cross, History Itself Cannot Be Corrected"

Ravi Zacharias, one of the most recognizable apologists and preachers of our time, as written a truly amazing Facebook post about the meaning of Good Friday and the cross. Zacharias reminds us that this day, when Jesus was crucified, will remain to be the point on which human history hinges. 

"We often hear the phrase, "the crux of the matter" or "the crux of a situation," explains Ravi. "The word "crux" comes from Medieval Latin, and simply means cross. Why has the word "crux" come to be associated with a critical juncture or point in time? Because the Cross of Christ is truly the crux of history. Without the Cross, history itself cannot be defined or corrected."

He continues "There is another word we often hear when we are in the throes of indescribable pain, the word, "excruciating." That, too, derives from the Latin and means "out of the cross.""

"Across time and human experience, the historical event of the Cross intersects time and space and speaks to the deepest hurts of the human heart."
