Getting off that cross: is there more meaning and power or less?

What if Jesus had come down off of that cross to display the power that the onlookers had doubted? What then?

St. Paul says that the cross is a stumbling block to the Jews and foolishness to the Greeks. In reality the cross is the power and wisdom of God. Getting off the cross is the path to a truncated meaning and reveals less power. It does not go “all the way” for love. God is love. God goes all the way.
