Basically, the cross was an instrument to provocate the death to political criminals within roman empire. Jesus died by its particular explosive ideas and not by its fight against Jude religious power. Jesus was talking about the "kingdom of God" and this speech was suficient to create him problems inside some areas of the Jude society. The kingdom of God was such a kingdom where people live helping each other to build a better society, the cross represents the political dimension of Jesus message.
