The article discusses the challenges that the holy cross represents. It states that crucifixion, in the context of the first-century Roman Empire, was a shameful and terrible mode of execution which makes the Christian expression "holy cross" a terrible and even shocking statement. However, the author says that in the concept of the Christian's claim that Christ's crucifixion enabled man to relate to God in a new way, the "holy cross" then made sense.
