Approximately one third of the total bulk of the four
Gospels deals with the death of Christ and related sub-
jects. This is indeed remarkable! Ordinary biographies
speak at length of the hero's life and declare his death
in a sentence or two but the Bible has a sentence or
two about Christ's birth and speaks at length -even
institutes a sacrament, anent his death. A theology that
turns about his death has greater claim to being in the
tradition than has one that turns about his life. And it
is specifically the cross of Christ that "towers o'er the
wrecks of time".
