The Cross of Jesus is a scandal

An innocent man suffered the horrendous death of a criminal.

A powerful King is humiliated by a brutal foreign ruler rather than delivering his people from their unjust suffering.

Guilty people who believe the innocent man died in their place escape punishment for their wrongdoing. They don't get what they deserved.

The Raising of the Cross by Rembrandt (1633).
n.b. He painted himself into the scene!
