This is a blog to discuss philosophy, chess, politics,
C. S. Lewis, or whatever it is that I'm in the mood to discuss.
The best treatment of this issue that I've ever read is the essay "The Cross" by Charles Williams. You can find on pages 131-139 of his book The Image of the City. Williams demonstrates that Christ can be said to have been "complicit" in his Crucifixion in everything from the creation of iron ore from which to make the nails to the tree from which the wood of the Cross was taken. His point was that the Crucifixion was implicit from the first instant of Creation.A powerful essay (as are the others in the book), and well worth searching out.
