In this short video segment taken from his sermon, “The Centrality of the Cross,” Jason Meyer, Pastor for Vision and Preaching at Bethlehem Baptist Church, simply but powerfully tells and explains the story of Jesus’ death on the cross. And, to further our understanding, he gives a real-life illustration that will help both young and old alike.
