But there’s more. Of both these lenses, one must necessarily always be part of the other. The zoom lens, that is, the gospel of the cross, must always be part of the broader explanation. Without the death and resurrection of Jesus to save sinners, there’s no remaking of a new world. Without the forgiveness of sins — my sins and your sins — because Jesus died in our place, there’s not really a “whole good news” of anything. The cross is, as it were, the heartbeat, the key. It is the thing you must say.
