17A Creation: Sacrifice

“Paul would later write that the preaching of the Cross was a stumbling block to the Jews but foolishness to the Greeks (1 Co 1:23). But exactly why was it foolishness to the Greeks? Because Greeks had no concept of a Creator God (one God) as the Jews did. They didn’t have the history about Adm and Eve or the Fall of man in the Garden and the entrance of sin and death. They did not understand the sacrificial system God instituted in Genesis 3:21 (the first blood sacrifice as a covering for their sin, a picture of what was to come in Jesus Christ, the lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world). They had the wrong foundation, and because of this, they didn’t understand the message of the Cross. Therefore, it was foolishness to them (Gospel Reset by Ken Ham, p.62).
