Ouxano 87: The Cross is the Center of the Entire Bible

[display_podcast] One of the first things we run into as we begin reading the New Testament is Jesus’ teachings.  In fact, just five chapters into the first of the four Gospels, the Gospel according to Matthew, Jesus begins what is widely known as the greatest sermon ever taught: The Sermon on the Mount.  (Matthew 5-7).
