This is a gift of true heirloom quality—a treasure to pass on to the next generations.
A Crucifix Cast of Bronze with Red and Blue Enamel Inlay from France
Measuring 6.2 inches high and 4.4 inches wide, the Cloué sur la Croix Crucifix features an eyelet on top to ensure problem-free hanging on the wall in study, home or office. This wall crucifix was designed, cast and hand-finished in an artist’s workshop in France.
“Crucified” and “Messiah” do not compute!
A “Crucified Messiah” is, simply put, a ridiculous oxymoron. The two disciples on their way to Emmaus were of this conviction. They shared with their mysterious companion that “Jesus of Nazareth was a prophet, powerful in word and deed before God and all the people. The chief priests and our rulers handed him over to be sentenced to death, and they crucified him; but we had hoped that he was the one who was going to redeem Israel” (Luke 24:19-24). ”We had hoped…” The two disciples had hoped for something much more than a humiliated, crucified and killed prophet. Jesus was supposed to have been the Messiah who would vanquish the Romans, free Israel and usher in a new age of peace and justice. The Risen Jesus responds by revealing himself to them in the breaking of the bread. He shows that he is much more than a mere military “messiah”—he is now the Lord of life, the Conqueror of death, the Crucified and Risen Messiah who makes all things new.
