Like it or not, the Cross is the uncomfortable, scandalous symbol of Christianity. There is just no way of avoiding it. No other religion professes its faith with the image of a capital punishment. It was a gruesome form of torture and death in the ancient Roman Empire, and yet women and men wear this symbol on chains around their necks, on commitment rings or badges; they sign themselves with a Cross before prayers and even sports people are seen making this sign before an event. In his years of teaching and writing, Tony Kelly has continuously explored they 'why' of this symbol. Apart from the historical, political reasons that led to Jesus' death in this brutal way, why this form of death; where was God on Golgotha; what was the purpose or meaning of this death; could it have been avoided? These are just some of the questions raised on the cross of Jesus. Such questions were first asked by Jesus' friends and followers who seem to have had such high expectation of him. But these 'had hopes' (Lk 24:21) were shattered on Golgotha. The shock of his death was compounded by the fur- ther shock of his return to them-they named their experience as resurrection-a word only associated with the 'last days'. Death was one thing. Resurrection compounded the questions. As Jews, these friends and followers puzzled their experience in the light of their Jewish scriptures and traditions. First Paul, then the Gospel writers, and then John, the visionary, mined their scriptures and theology to find ways to communicate the inexpressible. From the Foreword by Mary Coloe, PBVM
