The Cross: Thirteen Views

1. Greek Cross-This cross is sometimes referred to as the Patriarchal Cross and can be seen in early church art. The top cross-bar represents the plaque that was placed over the head of Jesus. The inscription said “Jesus of Nazareth, King of the Jews”.



2. Cross of Calvary-The three steps leading up to this cross represent the hill of calvary or faith, love, and hope.

3. Latin Cross-This is the best known symbol of the crucifixion of Christ and is recognized by Christians everywhere. When shown with an image of Christ, it is called a crucifix. If you take the shape of a true Latin cross and fold it you will create a cube. The cube is an ancient symbol of earthly authority.




4. Celtic Cross-these symbols that have become so popular today to decorate with date from the 7th century. In Ireland legend tells that it was Saint Patrick who first brought the cross to the pagan Irish. Today, some white nationalist and neo-facists groups have taken an altered version of the Celtic cross as a symbol for their movement.







5. Russian Orthodox-this cross is similar to the Greek Cross but it also has a cross bar near the bottom of the cross. The lower cross bar represents the footrest (suppendaneum) to which the feet of Jesus were nailed. In the Greek Church this cross bar is straight, but in later Russian tradition the cross bar is slanted. From Wikipedia: One tradition says that this comes from the idea that as Jesus took his last breath, the bar his feet were nailed to broke, thus slanting to the side. It is also said that the slanted bar represents the repentant thief and the unrepentant thief that were crucified with Christ, the one to Jesus' right hand repenting and rising to be with God, and one on his left falling to Hell and separation from God. In this manner it also reminds the viewer of the Last Judgement. Another explanation of the slanted crossbar would suggest the Cross Saltire, as tradition holds that the Apostle St. Andrew introduced Christianity to lands north of the Black Sea: today's Belarus, Russia, and Ukraine.


6. Papal Cross- This cross has three horizontal bars near the top, in diminishing order or length as the top is approached. Since a two-barred cross is used to denote the ecclesiastical rank of a bishop it is assumed the three-barred cross represents the papal office.







7. Budded Cross- This cross is also known as the Apostle’s or Disciple’s Cross, the Treflee, Trefoil, Bontonee or Bottony Cross, or the Cathedral Cross. Basically it is a Latin Cross with three buds. The three-leafed clover end points remind Christians that faith, hope, and love as well as the Trinity. Some have used Number 17 to refer to the budded cross as well.



8. Inverted Cross or Cross of St. Peter-This cross is often used with two keys to symbolize the keys of heaven. When St. Peter was crucified he asked to be hung upside down because he felt he was unworthy to be crucified the same way Christ was. Some Catholics use this cross to symbolize unworthiness or humility.



9. Triumphant Cross with Orb-This cross is often seen in Christian art and it is a symbol representing Christ reign over the world. It is often seen atop a sceptor in Christ’s hand.




10. The Conqueor’s or Victor’s Cross-Notice the letters…….This is a Greek cross with the first and last letters of “Jesus” and “Christ” on top. The Greek word for conqueror is across the bottom. The lines over the top letters indicate they are abbreviations.




11. Baptismal Cross-This is also a Greek Cross superimposed on an “X” or the Greek letter Chi. It is a very old symbol from ancient Egypt and refers to the eight emanations of the manifested creation. Gnostics borrowed the symbol to represent the eight Aeons, and resurrection. In Catholicism it represents the age of baptism in the church (eight years) and the eight day interval between Christ’s entry into Jerusalem and his resurrection. Baptismal fonts are usually eight sided as well. Eight is also a symbol of regeneration.



12. St. Andrew’s cross-According to tradition Andrew, like Peter, felt himself unworthy to be crucified in the same manner as Jesus. His request was granted and he was put to death on an X-shaped cross. The symbol is part of the Scottish flag as St. Andrew is the patron saint of Scotland.



13. For all my/our interest in various crosses used throughout time the only one that matters…the one that deserves all our our focus….doesn’t exist anymore though some argue that slivers of it did survive over the last 2,000 or so years. The actual cross isn’t what is so important, but what happened on it is. The old hymn says it all: O that old rugged cross, so despised by the world, has a wondrous attraction for me; for the dear Lamb of God left his glory above to bear it to dark Calvary. In that old rugged cross, stained with blood so divine, a wondrous beauty I see, for ‘twas on that old cross Jesus suffered and died, to pardon and sanctify me.

I hope you enjoyed looking at all of the various crosses presented here. While these aren’t the only designs that have existed through the ages I thought they were the most interesting.

Would You...Could You Do This?

Two college age members from my church recently left Georgia to travel to Peru for mission work. I am truly amazed that these young men would leave the comforts of home to travel to an unknown land to live among the people and share their Christianity.

It has not been an easy road for for Jorge or Austin since graduating high school one year ago. I’m not sure at 18 or 19 years of age I would have been brave enough to embark on a mission like this.

I encourage you to join in on keeping up with Jorge as he is Chasing God and with Austin while he is in Peru.

…and hey, if you decide to leave they boys a comment at their sites let them know EHT sent you. :)

I snagged the picture from Jorge’s site….hope he doesn’t mind.

Is This the First Christian Church? 13 Statements About It

1. On Wednesday, I related information regarding the 70 disciples Jesus sent out as related at Luke 10: 1-24.

2. Last week archeologists in Rihab, Jordan announced they may have found the location where the first Christians…..perhaps even the 70 gathered.

3. The place is hidden beneath another early church known as St. George which dates back to 230 A.D. (however, this date is disputed).

4. Evidence regarding early Christian rituals have been found in the cave underneath the church and archaeologists are attempting to link the cave to the 70 disciples Jesus sent out in Luke. The picture below shows someone leaving the cave that has been found.

5. If this is true the cave might possibly be the oldest Christian site in the world and is being initially dated from 33 A.D. to 70 A.D.

6. Found within the cave is a circular worship area and a separate living area. Early Christians could have hidden in the cave to fend off persecution.

7. Found within the ruins of the St. George church above the cave is a mosaic that mentions the 70 disciples who founded the worship there.

8. A mosaic inscription on the floor of the later church of St. George above refers to 'the 70 beloved by God and the divine' who laid the foundations for the Christian church. The remains of St. George are seen below.

9. The archaeologist also said mosaics are difficult to date unless there is a precise date in the text of the inscriptions themselves.

10. Typically, mosaic inscriptions like those found at St. George containing Christian themes are usually from the 5th to 6th century.
11. Many archeologists even those who have worked the site however are advising caution regarding the find. It’s just too earlier to substantiate any of the claims.

12. One of the archaeologists stated, "It's quite possible that there was a cave with earlier occupation which was later converted to Christian use. But to make the jump that this was actually used by Christians fleeing Jerusalem in the 1st century A.D. seems like a stretch to me.”
13. We may never really know for sure if the cave was the location where the 70 disciples met, but in the whole scheme of things it doesn’t really matter. My historian self wants to trudge on in an attempt to prove the validity of the cave one way or another, yet my Christian self knows that the most important truth involves the Great Commandment and the Great Commission. Everything else is just the “stuff” of being human, and with time it will all fall away.

Wordless: Verse 47

This image depicts the 70 disciples....Luke 10: 1-24 relates the events surrounding the 70 men sent out by Jesus to spread the word. Western Christianity refers to the men as disciples while Eastern Christianity uses the term apostles. The 70 are only referred to in the Gospel of Luke, however Jesus is seen sending out others…..Luke 9: 1-6 explains Jesus sent out the 12 disciples with similar directions as given to the 70. The directions are paralleled with Matthew 9: 35, Matthew 10: 1, and Matthew 10: 7-11.

So, who were the 70? The Bible doesn’t tell us, but in the third century the bishop Dorotheus of Tyre related the names in what is described as the lost Gospel of the Seventy. Other historians, including Hippolytus published lists naming the 70, but they are not scriptual.

Oh Ye of Little Faith

Faith.

Do you have it? If you are like me there have been times in your life when you have worried, you have been fearful, or you have doubted. The disciples certainly had these human emotions.

Luke 12:27-28... Consider the lilies how they grow: they toil not, they spin not; and yet I say unto you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. If then God so clothe the grass, which is to day in the field, and to morrow is cast into the oven; how much more will he clothe you, O ye of little faith?

Matthew 8:25-26... And his disciples came to him, and awoke him, saying, Lord, save us: we perish. And he saith unto them, Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith? Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm.

Matthew 14:30-31... But when he [Peter] saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me. And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?

In the verses above Jesus counters the human emotions of His disciples by telling them they should increase their faith to counter their fraility.

It sounds like a great plan, but what is faith?

Scriptually we only have one definition for faith. It is found in the eleventh chapter of Hebrews at the first verse…..Now faith is the reality of what is hoped for, the proof of what is not seen.

In his book The Pursuit of God by A.W. Tozier he reminds us that the definition of faith given in Hebrews is only a functional definition, not a philosophical one. It assumes the presence of faith and shows what it results in, rather than what it is. Tozier also advises we would be wise to go just that far and attempt to go no further. To attempt to go further in my own opinion would be to place words in God’s mouth and we certainly can never assume where the Lord is concerned. Tozier explains we are told from whence [faith] comes and by what means: “Faith is a gift of God (Ephesians 2:8),” and Faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God (Romans 10:17).”

Faith in action is best seen in the Old Testament story told in the book of Numbers (Numbers 21: 4-8) where the wandering people were being plagued with snakes. The Lord provided Moses with a remedy in that a serpent of brass was placed on a pole where everyone could see it. By gazing upon the serpent people would be saved even if they were bitten. Jesus refers to the serpent story in John 3 within His explanation regarding how man can be saved.

Jesus explains man is saved by one simple act of faith……by believing. Just as Moses lifted up the snake in the wilderness, so the Son of Man must be lifted up, so that everyone who believes in Him will have eternal life (John 3: 14-15).

It’s so simple yet faith can be hard virtue for many people. Perhaps as Tozier implies it is because it is the least self-regarding of the virtues. Like the eye which sees everything in front of it and never sees itself, faith is occupied with the Object upon which it rests and pays no attention to itself at all. In today’s society we are encouraged to be self-fixers but Tozier explains when we take our eyes off ourselves and place them on God faith begins to look out instead of in and the whole life falls into line.

Who needs the next greatest self-help book? We already have the best one, and it tells us to have faith, look to God, and follow His word.

Love Song For a Savior



In open fields of wild flowers,
she breathes the air and flies away
She thanks her Jesus for the daises and the roses
in no simple language
Someday she'll understand the meaning of it all
He's more than the laughter or the stars in the heavens
As close a heartbeat or a song on her lips
Someday she'll trust Him and learn how to see Him
Someday He'll call her and she will come running
and fall in His arms and the tears will fall down and she'll pray,

"I want to fall in love with You

"Sitting silent wearing Sunday best
The sermon echoes through the walls
A great salvation through it calls to the people
who stare into nowhere, and can't feel the chains on their souls

He's more than the laughter or the stars in the heavens
As close a heartbeat or a song on our lips
Someday we'll trust Him and learn how to see Him
Someday He'll call us and we will come running
and fall in His arms and the tears will fall down and we'll pray,

"I want to fall in love with You"

It seems too easy to call you "Savior",
Not close enough to call you "God"
So as I sit and think of words I can mention
to show my devotion

"I want to fall in love with You"

"my heart beats for You"

Memories Old and New: Vacation Bible School

Go back in time with me to the olden days when summer was June, July, and August, kids caught fire flies while the adults talked ‘big talk’ on the porch, and my sister and I would find ourselves in our pajamas at the Dairy Queen on the whim of our parents as dusk overtook the day.

Each summer morning I would awaken to an already fiery sun around nine a.m. I would lie there awake and listen to the sounds around me.

Sometimes I would identify the sounds of the washing machine, the slam of our wooden screen door, or my mother speaking on the telephone. I never dressed immediately. Instead I would get up and wander about the house looking out the front door and then moving towards the back of the house to check out what was going on.

I’d say good morning to mom and then fix my breakfast. Sometimes it would be cinnamon toast or my personal favorite back then….Saltines spread with just a hint of butter and placed under the broiler. “Not too long or they’ll burn,” my mother would remind me. Breakfast would be served in front of television that would blare The Price is Right, The $25,000 Dollar Pyramid, and Match Game (cartoons only played on Saturday morning back then).

By the end of Match Game I knew it was 10:30. What? You didn’t tell time by what was on television? It was easier back then, you know. We only had three channels---four or five if the coat hanger with oddly formed clumps of aluminum foil attached to it was turned just right. By 11:00 I was finally dressed and mounting my bike to survey my outside world to see if anything was amiss.

My Dad ran a lumberyard and our house was in the middle of it. I had a large wonderful world to play in, imagine in and with all that extra lumber lying around I could concoct some hellacious ramps to take jumps on. I popped a pretty mean wheelie, too, with my monkey handlebars, banana shaped bike seat (white with psychedelic flowers) and optional sissy bar.

By late afternoon it would be H---O---T, hot, and my Sheltie dog, Lady, and I would opt for porch play. The house I grew up in was built in 1929 and had a very wide front porch that spanned the length of the front of the house. It was a wonderful outside room we used when it rained. Sometimes we used it late into the evening on summer nights. I’d play ‘house’ or ‘school’ for hours with Lady dutifully playing the role of ‘the baby’ or ‘the student’. Sometimes Lady would want her belly rubbed so I’d read aloud to her from books like Henry and Ribsey, Ramona Quimby, Stuart Little, or Homer Price. Lady would lay there all sprawled out listening to me occasionally wagging her tail in amusement.

Then the week would finally arrive for Vacation Bible School. I’d spend each morning for one week with my Sunday people. You know, all the folks I usually only saw on Sundays---the preacher, the choir director, my Sunday school teachers, and all the other people who benefited from my hugs. I was a huge hugger as a child and I made my rounds every Sunday.

Vacation Bible School meant more time for hugs. Vacation Bible School also meant learning more about Jesus, singing songs like Deep and Wide and crafts. There would be lots of glue, popsicle sticks, Bible verses and of course, pictures of Jesus that would be glued to construction paper, taken home, and placed on the fridge.

Well, a few years have passed. Both of my children have experienced their own VBS classses as students and as teen helpers, and I have now experienced the blessing of helping a few times as teacher, as an assistant, and as snack purveyor. This year I was hoping for the snack jig again, but I inquired too late, and our director really needed help with the 2 year olds.

Let me repeat that…..2, two, TWO. Two as in diapers, two as in drool, two as in needs to be constantly watched.

For those that know me the best they know that me being in a room with eight 2-year-olds is extremely laughable. I relate better to older children and the only 2-year-olds I ever bonded with are the two that exited by body.

I changed my first diaper in 14 years on Monday. A friend of mine was watching from afar and she thought was really funny when I spent a good five minutes trying to unbutton the little boy’s pants. I mean, c’mon, I’ve got three college degrees. I know how to change a diaper, but the button was giving me a problem. I couldn’t get it undone. Finally, I looked up and saw my friend with a bemused look, and it dawned on me….I said, “They pull down, don’t they?” She laughed and gave me an affirmative answer. I felt stupid. :) The little boy just looked up at me and gurgled.

Vacation Bible School is still a time for hugs. Now, I'm on the adult end of the hugs. I’ve received and given many this week, and each and every one is very special.

As a member of our history committee at our church I walked around yesterday and took pictures of all of the various classes and activities going on to preserve them for posterity.....sort of appropriate for a history teacher, isn't it?

Made to Worship



Ever wonder what your “special purpose” is? Ephesians 1: 11-12 says is all…It’s in Christ that we find out who we are and what we are living for. Long before we first heard of Christ and got our hopes up, he had his eye on us, had designs on us for glorious living, part of the overall purpose he is working out in everything and everyone.

The lyrics to Chris Tomin’s song adds a bit more…..

Before the day
Before the light
Before the world revolved around the sun
God on high
Stepped down into time
And wrote the story of His love for everyone
He has filled our hearts with wonder
So that we always remember

You and I were made to worship
You and I are called to love
You and I are forgiven and free
You and I embrace surrender
You and I choose to believe
You and I will see who we were meant to be

All we are
And all we have
Is all a gift from God that we receive
Brought to life
We open up our eyes
To see the majesty and glory of the King
He has filled our hearts with wonder
So that we always remember

You and I were made to worship
You and I are called to love
You and I are forgiven and free
You and I embrace surrender
You and I choose to believe
You and I will see who we were meant to be

And even the rocks cry out
And even the Heavens shout
At the sound of His holy name
So let every voice sing out
And let every knee bow down
He is worthy of all our praise

You and I were made to worship
You and I are called to love
You and I are forgiven and free, yeah
You and I embrace surrender
You and I choose to believe
You and I will see, you and I will see

You and I were made to worship
You and I are called to loveYou and I are forgiven and free, yeah
You and I embrace surrender
You and I choose to believe
You and I will see who we were meant to be

Why the Audacity!

I firmly believe that when looking at the issues and voting record of a political candidate I’m not going to find a perfect fit with everything I’m passionate about. In fact, I would venture to say that for every candidate I’ve voted for (on both sides of the aisle) there have always been issues we differed over. The trick I believe is finding the candidate that is most like me…the candidate that has a voting record I can live with.

What about character? Does character count when looking for a presidential candidate? It does with me. Especially with regards to how the candidate treats people.

My husband received an email today from a Navy buddy of his. The contents of the email was written by the friend’s father, Tom Clynch, who resides in the great state of Texas. Mr. Clynch states, “You see….character is what’s shown when the public is not looking.” I have to agree. This is a maxim I have used over and over to my students.

Mr. Clynch ended his email with a reference to Barack Obama’s book Audacity of Hope and in relation to the story related in the email I began to think about the word “audacity.”

When you visit the dictionary it provides two entries for the word audacity. The first definition involves boldness or daring involving confident or arrogant disregard for personal safety, conventional thought, or other restrictions.

Mr. Clynch relates a story involving John McCain that occurred in New Hampshire. He states there was no press or cameras invited to a meeting between McCain and the woman he visited with. Along on the visit with McCain was his youngest son, James McCain, 19, who at the time was about to leave for Iraq.

From the email:

One evening last July, Senator John McCain of Arizona arrived at the New Hampshire home of Erin Flanagan for sandwiches, chocolate-chip cookies and a heartfelt talk about Iraq. They had met at a presidential debate, when she asked the candidates what they would do to bring home American soldiers - -soldiers like her brother, who had been killed in action a few months earlier.

[The two McCains] sat down to hear more about Ms. Flanagan's brother Michael Cleary, a 24-year-old Army First Lieutenant killed by an ambush ... a roadside bomb. No one mentioned the obvious: In just days, Jimmy McCain could face similar perils. 'I can't imagine what it must have been like for them as they werecoming to meet with a family that ......' Ms. Flanagan recalled, choking up. 'We lost a dear one,' she finished.Mr. McCain, now the presumptive Republican nominee, has staked his candidacy on the promise that American troops can bring stability to Iraq. What he almost never says is that one of them is his own son, who spent seven months patrolling Anbar Province and learned of his father's New Hampshire victory in January while he was digging a stuck military vehicle out of the mud.Two of Jimmy's three older brothers went into the military. Doug McCain, 48,was a Navy pilot. Jack McCain, 21, is to graduate from the Naval Academynext year, raising the chances that his father, if elected, could become thefirst president since Dwight D. Eisenhower with a son at war.

Mr. Clynch’s message goes on to state: I chose to share this with those who I believe will pass it on, to others who will pass it on. We hear so much inflated trash out there. How about a simple act of kindness ... and dedication to others placed above oneself?

Yes, I get it. How audacious of Mr. McCain.

The second entry for the definition of audacity provides that to have audacity one must exhibit effrontery, insolence or shameless boldness.

Mr. Clynch provides the other side of the coin in his email by writing:

Has anybody heard if Barack Hussein Obama has served in The American ArmedServices?

This is for all you Barack voters.

From Barack's book, Audacity of Hope:"I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an uglydirection."

HE DID NOT SAY STAND WITH AMERICANS!!!!!

While I do feel military service is not a necessary ingredient for filling the desk chair in the Oval Office I want my leader of the armed forces to understand our military’s importance and to have high regard for them. The quotation from Mr. Obama’s book causes me great concern as a Christian and as an American. Hints of Socialism litter Mr. Obama’s comments…..at least those comments that have any meat to them and are not some round-about mish-mash of platitudes about hope and change. I haven’t heard very many references to HOW he is going to change anything. I'm not sure if I want to. His "hows" will probably scare me even more anyway.

The most glaring difference I currently see in the two present candidates for president is their love for our country. Mr. McCain is audacious in that he loves our country but understands change is needed.

Mr. Obama is audacious in that he has exhibited little love for our country and has little shame over that fact. Everything is wrong and there is no good. He has the audacity to believe that love for country and love of God are just panaceas middle America holds onto. He just doesn’t understand what those concepts mean. He has the audacity to allow his family to remain members of a church where hate is preached from the pulpit. He has the audacity to read from a well prepared speech, but doesn't speak from his heart.

I want my president to be capable of being audacious. However, I choose definition one over definition two.

UPDATE: Later in the evening I saw this:

The AJC’s Jim Wooten states Obama's flimsy resume gives national liberal cause for alarm....

13 MORE Christian One Liners

Last week I posted a few one liners. Here's a few more:

1. I don’t know why some people change churches; what difference does it make which one you stay home from?

2. A lot of church members who are singing “Standing on the Promises” are just sitting on the premises.

3. We were called to be witnesses, not lawyers or judges.

4. Be ye fishers of men. You catch them – He’ll clean them.

5. Coincidence is when God chooses to remain anonymous.

6. Don’t put a question mark where God put a period.

7. Don’t wait for six strong men to take you to church.

8. Forbidden fruits create many jams.

9. God doesn’t call the qualified, He qualifies the called.

10. God grades on the cross, not the curve.

11. God loves everyone, but probably prefers “fruits of the spirit” over “religious nuts!”

12. God promises a safe landing, not a calm passage.

13. He who angers you, controls you!

Wordless: Verse 46

This is an image of Jacob’s Well…located on the plot of land Jacob purchased from Hanor for “a hundred pieces of silver” (Genesis 33:19). It was here he took root with his family and his flocks.

This is also the same well where Jesus has his conversation with the woman at the well. Scholars state that this conversation is the longest recorded in the Bible between Jesus and another person. It is no accident the conversation is with a woman and a Samaritan woman as well. I’ve written a series of posts here that explain the significance of the Samaritan people and how they fit into the Bible.

The account of the woman at the well is only found in one of the gospels….John….John 4

An old church located over the well was destroyed, but was restored by the Crusaders. Today a Greek Orthodox Monastery stands there.
