Why a Crucified Messiah? by Fr. Thomas Hopko – Part 1
Why did the Messiah, the Savior of the world, have to necessarily die an unnatural death by being murdered?
Fr. Thomas Hopko gave the talk, Why a Crucified Messiah, at the 2007 “Come and See” seminar in St. Louis Missouri. The Seminar, the 6th organized by Orthodox Witness, was held at St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church in St. Louis Missouri. The “Come and See” seminars were organized to invite our community to learn more about the teachings of the Orthodox Church from high profile Orthodox converts and speakers.
Fr. Hopko delivered two talks at the 2007 seminar. In this post, we present the first of his two talks: “Why a Crucified Messiah?” [Total time: 1 hour, 15 minutes]
