As we come to Passover, it is appropriate we examine why Christ had to die by the intensely painful death of being crucified for our sins and why Paul says HE was crucified with Christ. (This is a mostly new sermon, though I’ve spoken on this topic many years ago.) God’s plan of redemption begins with crucifixion. So Passover and the crucifixion go hand in hand. Yeshua tells his followers they must take up their cross daily and follow him. Are YOU crucified with Christ? What does that mean? This has everything to do with being “in Christ”.
