The Jerusalem Cross

The Jerusalem Cross

The Jerusalem Cross appears on the cover of James Jordan's Sociology of the Church. On the copyright page, Jordan explains:
The cross is a symbol of the death of Christ for our sins, but more than that, the cross is the design of the world as created by God, with four rivers going to the four corners of the earth. The spreading Jerusalem Cross pictures for us the Good News of Christ's death and resurrection moving out to encompass the whole world. The smaller crosses picture the principles of the Kingdom coming to life in the hearts of believers, and in the life of the nations, as these are encompassed within the arms of Jesus Christ and His church.
