“Here, astoundingly, crucifixion on a cross is a model around which Paul’s audiences are to construct the whole of their life.”
Bruce W. Longenecker, The Cross before Constantine: The Early Life of a Christian Symbol

“This made the Christian message of the cross wholly distinctive—a sui generis phenomenon within the Greco-Roman world that had no analogy with ordinary conceptualizations of crucifixion.”
Bruce W. Longenecker, The Cross before Constantine: The Early Life of a Christian Symbol
