    Here is an excellent essay regarding this expression to “take up your cross”. In summary, it was a Hebrew idiom that Jesus used to illustrate a willingness to suffer martyrdom for being a disciple of Jesus, and does not necessarily have any reference to salvation whatsoever.

    Great link, Andy. I hope people read it.

    There was a concentrated effort early on to erase Jesus’ Jewish roots and then to understand Him through a Greek filter.

    I have learned so much over the past ten years of things we get wrong or don’t deeply understand the overarching meaning because we ignore how a first century Jew would have understood it.
