Thomas Oden says…

The cross had to be carried and endured before it could be preached. Jesus came to become the sacrifice, not clarify the concept of sacrifice. He did not come to teach about the cross, but to be nailed to it. He came that there might be a gospel to be preached.

Thomas Oden, The Word of Life, p. 344
