The Two-Fold Rejection of the Cross

Jesus suffered a two-fold rejection. He was too holy to be received by sinful men. And in that awful moment of His sacrifice He was too sinful to be received by a holy God. So He hung between heaven and earth, rejected by both until He cried, ‘It is finished… Father, into Your hands I commit My spirit.’ (Jn. 19.38; Lk. 23.46). Then He was received by the Father.
