Several years ago when I was in the Ukraine, they told me a story about a Russian Prince and his slave who were riding a dog sled in Siberia. Soon into their journey, they began to be chased by a pack of ferocious wolves. As much as they tried to outrun the wolves, they couldn’t. The wolves drew nearer and nearer and soon both men realized they wouldn’t be able to escape.
So, in great love, the servant threw himself off of the dog sled and sacrificed himself to the hungry wolves so his Prince would get away unharmed and survive. The servant died so the King could live.
As I listened to this story, one man said, “That’s a picture of the cross!”
To this, another man quickly responded, “No it isn’t. If that was a picture of the cross then the King would have thrown Himself off to save the slave. In the gospel, the King dies so the servants can live.”
