|The Raising of the Cross by Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn.|
Rembrandt understood that Christ died for the sins of the world, including his own sins. So, it is as if he hung Christ on the Christ himself.
Remember that we find Salvation in this perfect sacrifice:
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. -John 3:16
But, remember that the cross was not the end; Sunday is coming...
