The gospel message concerning the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus is simple enough that a child can understand and be saved. Behind the simplicity of the gospel is a wealth of wonderful knowledge regarding who God is and what He has accomplished for mankind through the substitutionary death of His Son. The cross is God's righteous solution to the problem of sin, as well as His greatest display of love toward sinners. Law and grace, life and death, as well as time and eternity all intersect at the cross; displaying a divine wisdom that staggers the imagination and leads the humble heart to bow in thankful adoration. To understand the cross of Christ is to understand the heart of God toward a fallen world He wants to save. The cross of Christ "is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God" (1 Cor. 1:18).
