“The marvel of heaven and earth, of time and eternity, is the atoning death of Jesus Christ. This is the mystery that brings more glory to God than all creation.”

C. H. Spurgeon

Should Dietrich Bonhoeffer be considered a “martyr”? Craig J. Slane, in his book, Bonhoeffer as Martyrgave the various responses to that question, and these “responses and concerns”

…call for a careful examination of martyrdom in the Christian tradition to see whether and to what extent Bonhoeffer can be fitted into the category. This is no easy task, for the category itself has an evolutionary history. In the course of the examination it will become obvious that the Christian understanding of martyrdom is a matter of historical development of and elaboration upon the relation between the life and death of Jesus and the lives and deaths of his followers (34).

Today is “Good Friday”. I heard someone say this morning that “Good Friday” should be called “Great Friday” instead. I agree! It is “Great Friday” because nearly 2000 years ago Jesus Christ died in our place on the cross for our sins!
