“For I decided to know nothing among you except Christ and Him Crucified.”

Crucified. We preach Christ and Him crucified. I desired to know nothing amongst you other than Christ and him crucified. The words of the Cross are foolishness to those perishing but, to us being saved, they are the power and wisdom of God.
Crucified. You seek Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. It was necessary for the Son of Man to be betrayed to the chief priests and teachers of the Law, be crucified, die, and after three days rise again from the dead.
Crucified. We were crucified with Him in the waters of Holy Baptism. As surely as we died with Him, we rose with Him. We live in Him. We eat the Body and drink the Blood of the one who gave up His life on the Cross for us.
At the 2015 conferences, we received all the gifts that come from the Lord, who was crucified for us under Pontius Pilate and raised from the dead on the third day. His crucifixion is our faith. His crucifixion is our death. His resurrection is our justification by faith alone.
