Chapter 10 - Cross

In chapter 9, we found ourselves with a group gathered in a house church, 200 years from the events of the Old Testament. Now in chapter 10, we find ourselves asking why would these people even serve a Christ who died on a Roman cross, the worst kind of shame there was? They are risking it all for love. A love that is worth living, and maybe even dying for. They got their example from Jesus, who was not a king who came riding in as a conquerer on a war horse, but weeping on a donkey. His kingdom was not established by violent coercion, but through love. Jesus was a king who served people.
