The Mystery of The Cross
No one can keep a secret like God! It's difficult to find a mystery in the Bible! God has never been in the business of keeping His will secret! The Old Testament is full of information God gave to His prophets who then gave it to His people. Time after time, God's people did not ike the message from God and they killed the messengers.
God planned the crucifixion to save all of mankind from their sins. It is the single most important event in all of history. Jesus died on the cross to pay for everyone's sins. Jesus' death, burial, and resurrection reconciled all sinners to God.
The crucifixion is not the mystery that God kept hidden. It was after the crucifixion that God took a detour from what everyone knew would happen next! It's this detour that we will be exploring in this Bible study. We will also be studying why it was necessary for God to keep His plans out of the Old Testament prophesy and wait to give them all to the apostle Paul. It is very exciting when you understand the mind of God!
