Bible Study Extra:  Apostle Paul uses a very descriptive word in describing the cross of Jesus Christ.   In Colossians the emphasis upon the disarming of the enemy, and the public shame that they endured.  Yet in 2 Corinthians the word is used to describe a triumphal procession.  So putting the verses together we see that the cross was not a defeat fro Christ but rather a victory.  In the spiritual realm he defeated every principality and power, and he rendered them powerless against himself.  He reveals their weakness, by his resurrection.  Death could not hold him.  We walk and live in that victory.  We are able to enforce that victory against the spiritual darkness that comes against us.
