Summary/Abstract: The article presents the Cross of Jesus, being the main symbol of Christianity, as the essential theme of the Christian proclamation. It begins with considering the theological significance of historical realism of the Cross. Further, it reflects on the place of the Cross in the apostolic proclamation. Finally, two main intuitions regarding the Cross, which are present in this proclamation, are discussed: the fact that the Cross fulfils those Old Testament prophecies that refer to the Messiah and that God reveals himself most fully in Jesus’s Cross.
