The Great Ordeal
In the hero’s journey the ‘great ordeal’ may be a dangerous physical test or a deep inner crisis that the hero must face in order to survive or for the world in which the hero lives to continue to exist. Whether it be facing his greatest fear or most deadly foe, the Hero must draw upon all of his strength in order to overcome this most difficult challenge. On the cross Jesus Christ, our ultimate hero, defeated humanity’s greatest foes and leads his people into resurrection life.
