John 12:27-36

John Piper said that the greatest question of the 21st century is "Why did Jesus come and die?" There seem to be many answers to that, but one was "to glorify God." In what way was God glorified by the cross? The simplest answer may be that Jesus was doing exactly what God wanted him to do. Jesus honored, respected and obeyed God.

The cross was also a magnet to draw men ... to itself? No, to the Christ on the cross—for the Christ on the cross is the Light of the world. Are we following as children of the Light?
