The cross addresses both the problems of sin and human suffering. Jesus identifies with us because the events of the crucifixion portray every variety of human suffering. Mockery, shame, betrayal by friends, physical death. Jesus not only suffers personally, but vicariously. Jesus is there with us in our suffering and carries it. He also redeems it. (Ppt 5)
