Fleming Rutledge’s “The Crucifixion” is one of the most stimulating and thought-provoking books of theology that I have read in the past ten years. There is so much value in this text that I plan to dedicate a number of videos to analyzing it. In this initial interpretive foray, I focus on two themes that run through the entire book and that ought to shape any Christian’s understanding of the cross: the sheer strangeness of the crucifixion and the weight of sin.
