The Modern Evangelist

The Roman crucifix will always be associated with the death of Jesus. Death by crucifixion was prominent long before Jesus was nailed to an old rugged cross – the actual cross used for Christ had doubtlessly been used for other criminals to be crucified on before him – and we can read about its use throughout history. Even after Christ’s death on the cross, death by crucifixion was used all throughout the world and continued for centuries – we can read about it in history books and on-line. But one fact stands firm throughout those centuries; wherever the cross was used to torture and punish criminals, the link between the cross and Jesus who died on one of them remained strong and paramount in the minds of everyone even until today.
