The Crucified Christ?
A “Crucified Christ” sounds like an obvious oxymoron. Two disciples, on their way to Emmaus, relate to their anonymous companion (the Risen Jesus) 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…” Clearly, they were not expecting the Christ to be killed! He was to be a powerful, military Messiah who would crush the Roman occupation and lead the Jewish people straightaway into the Messianic Age of peace and justice! Yet the Risen One (who has conquered death and certainly could have conquered the Romans!) shows the two disciples that being crucified to death and being the Christ are not, and never were, in fact, a contradiction in terms. Jesus is the Christ (Greek for “Messiah” – “the Anointed One”) – crucified to death, but risen into glory as the victor over death. He is the one and only Anointed – Christ – who will free, redeem, and transform all of creation.
