‘True Cross’ reports.

Woke this morning to a story on HuffPo story about the possible discovery of pieces of Jesus’ cross ( this may be oldish news to the better informed of you). My first thought was ‘really? more true cross? How many forests worth does that make it now?’, but this does seem to have a few more legit points in its favour. Mind you ‘remains of a holy person’ still leaves things a bit wide open, don’t they?

Edited to add- after nearly 2 years of writing a Christian-ish faith blog, I’ve only just added a ‘Jesus’ category. Whoops.

  1. Looking for proof will never work. One will never find or be able to prove God in that way. After all we have all of creation, the writings of real men who actually, truly lived with, ate with and talked with Jesus and that isn’t enough. That is why it is faith. And the definition of faith is to believe in something or someone we cannot see nor understand. i.e. prove!
    Ephesians 8-9 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— 9 not by works, so that no one can boast.
    It is a gift from God not by what bits of wood etc we can find and boast about..

    I wasn’t aware that there had been claims to have found any of the cross before but then I don’t have such a good memory anymorel

  2. It seems these are relics of a revered man who may have been crucified, but I suppose Jesus wasn’t the only person who could fit that description. And even if it could be shown to be Jesus’ cross, it doesn’t add a lot to what historians already know. There would hardly be a historian who doesn’t think the historical evidence shows that Jesus lived and was crucified. But it hardly shows that he was who christians believe he was.

    But it is indeed an interesting find nevertheless.
