The author then takes us into the Message of the Cross, as referred to by Paul in the First epistle written to the Corinthians (1 Cor. 1:18). He explains how the relationship between man and God changed as a result of the Cross.
“The message of the cross is that God’s relationship with man changed because of the cross. The way God related with man in the ages before the cross is not the way He relates with man after Christ’s death. He now relates with man purely on the basis of Christ’s death. In other ages, God related to man based on their obedience to His commands, but in this age He relates to man based on faith in Christ’s death on the tree….”
