In truth the image on the far left is the one that I want to cling to - the one of a super-human man who endured a beating and walked triumphantly to death.
The other image just breaks my heart. It haunts me. It challenges me. It confronts me with a reality that I don't like.
I pray that this will cause you to ponder the reality of Jesus' sacrifice for us.
It is a good thing to do on this Good day.
