Mystery of Man's Death

Bernadette Roberts
“It is not for nothing God so dramatized the death of Jesus that it would become known the world over. The man on the cross – the major icon of Christianity – forever links Christ to the mystery of man's death. Like the dual natures of Christ, there is sadness on the human side, glory on the divine side, yet, hidden in the event of everyone's death is the unbelievable truth of Christ. “Unbelievable” because the true nature of Christ's death, while the same for everyone, cannot be grasped intellectually. Its true nature can only be known experientially, which means, everyone will just have to “wait and see”.
