New PDF release: Sühne: Suche nach dem Sinn des Kreuzes (German Edition)

By Karl Josef Wallner

»Sühne« ist einer der wichtigsten Begriffe des christlichen Glaubens, der leider heute so intestine wie nicht mehr verstanden wird: used to be bedeutet es, dass Jesus »zur Sühne für unsere Sünden« am Kreuz stirbt, wie das Neue testomony so sehr betont?

Was meint Johannes der Täufer, wenn er Jesus - wie auf dem Isenheimer Altar so eindrucksvoll dargestellt - »das Lamm Gottes« nennt, »das die Sünde der Welt hinwegnimmt«? Warum feiern wir in jeder heiligen Messe, dass Christi Leib »für uns hingegeben« und Christi Blut »zur Vergebung der Sünden vergossen« wurde?

Pater Karl Wallner lädt ein, sich auf die Suche nach dem »Sinn« des Kreuzes Christi zu begeben.
