I was in a Protestant bookstore and couldn’t help but notice nearly all the pictures of Jesus had Him smiling, laughing, and giving hugs.
Now, I’m a firm believer in rejoicing in the Lord and, quite frankly, since I’ve become a Christian, I’m HAPPY!
That being said, it’s also true that Scripture emphasizes Christ’s suffering. Scripture says He was hungy, thirsty, angry, in pain, shedding tears for Jerusalem, etc.
The one event having most chapters written about it is His last week in Jerusalem, the events leading up to and including His death.
Now, my question: Is the Protestant emphasis on His resurrection (empty cross with no corpus, for example) biblically accurate considering the Bible emphasizes His sufferings?
1 Cor 11:26–“Whenever you eat this bread, then, and drink this cup, you are proclaiming the Lord’s death until He comes.”
