This two disc lecture set by Fr Hopko focuses on Christ crucified — the center of the Christian faith. Fr Hopko makes the important distinction between the Word of the Cross and the words from the cross. Paradoxically, the most profound Word of the Cross is the silence of God in his ultimate act and unsurpassable revelation. As Fr Hopko states, “Beyond the Cross there is nothing more God can do. Beyond the Cross there is nothing more God can say. Beyond the Cross there is nothing more to be revealed.”
The Word of the Cross
