This cross is made from locally sourced olive wood and crafted by artisans in the Bethlehem area. The cross has a small hole on the back for hanging.
The cross is the ultimate symbol of Christian faith, communicating the sacrificial love of God. The cross Jesus died on was an instrument of torture used by the Romans occupying the first-century Holy Land. According to the New Testament, Jesus’ death and resurrection made it possible for us to receive forgiveness of our sins and reconciliation with God (Romans 5:8). The cross is thus transformed into a symbol of life and love.
Note: Due to the nature of olive wood and the individuality of the artisans and their processes, every cross is unique and differs slightly from the picture posted
