BC: Before The Cross – The Exchange

April 1, 2012


Over the last few years, one of the most popular movie genres has been the prequel. That’s when the film takes you back and tells you the story before the story. When you are watching a prequel, you usually end up having a lot of “aha” moments, when you realize, “so that’s why he did that,” or, “now I get why that’s such a big deal to her.”

In the same way, the story of the cross, and what Jesus’ sacrifice means, takes on a whole new meaning when you take a look at the story before the story. Why did Jesus have to die on a cross? What did His death ac- complish? What does it mean for me? That’s what the BC series is all about.

Today we are talking about “The Exchange” and what it meant for Jesus to trade heaven for the cross.
