Ernst Kasemann on Preaching

“Christian preaching of the cross is in a sense thoroughly inhuman, for it strips a man of his assumed dignity and unmasks him, not merely as a beggar, but as a criminal before God…  In Jesus’ cross an end is made of all earthly running and striving, from which there can follow only the new creation out of nothing, or else despair.  Its effect is to break up man before his Lord.”

Ernst Kasemann “Jesus Means Freedom
