In the Bible, when we mention “images,” we don’t refer to literal representations like cross necklaces or crucifix paintings but rather metaphors—subtle allusions to the cross through literary devices and imagery. As we revisit familiar stories, we aim to uncover the intentional and profound image of the cross God has woven into the tapestry of Scripture. Images of the cross are everywhere in Scripture. But we are also those images. When we sacrifice our convenience, resources, and comfortability to bless others, we are images of the cross. As followers of Jesus, we want to model the work He did on the cross daily in treating others with kindness, repenting of our sins, and standing for what’s right despite the struggle.
