We see symbols everyday. Symbols of peace, strength, royalty, and victory.

Within Christianity, there is no greater symbol than the cross, something so obvious that we take it for granted. Something so pervasive, so associated with Christianity that we might not even question it.

But why is the cross the symbol?

Doubtless there could have been other symbols used.
