When I first came to Christ, I was excited about learning God’s truth. I read the Bible voraciously in those first few years, soaking up the wisdom and insight it had to offer. However, I had a major hurdle it would take me an entire year to overcome.
I read the gospels…but when it came to the end of Jesus’s life, I refused to read the parts of the gospel that described His crucifixion. It was an absurdity to me. Why would a man as powerful as Jesus allow Himself to become the victim of such a humiliating death?
