Christ’s Crucifixion was not a solitary event. Yes, He was crucified between two thieves; but there were many more present that day.
One thing is for certain, the great crowd who assembled that day was not there by accident.
Standing Near the Cross is a study of these people who were friends and enemies, men and women, named and unnamed, who witnessed the suffering of our Saviour, heard His groanings, felt the earth quake, and watched the sky turn dark as the Spotless Lamb became the Sacrificial Lamb for us all.
