Could you imagine a less radical ending for such a radical person? Christ came and fundamentally altered everything. He told us to turn the other cheek, asked us to love our enemies. He came and said that we have sinned and that through He alone could we enter the Eternal Kingdom of perfectness. It was through the most brutal execution and humiliation that He gave us His final lesson: that even He would endure public humiliation, torture and a slow and painful execution for our sake. He humanly endured all the worst of what we could ever endure and He did it for the sake of our souls. For when God was killed for giving humanity a chance at redemption in death humanity can find redemption.
You cannot find a more fitting end to Christ’s time on earth. He was the radical, He was a revolutionary. In His revolution He sought the restoration of the human soul. No one like that could fizzle out with a whimper.
