Do we need crux gemmatas?
Early Christians wouldn't have understood our practice of displaying crucifixes depicting a suffering Jesus. It wasn't that they didn't believe Jesus suffered and died for us; when they wanted to create a symbol which conveyed the meaning of that unique event, putting a suffering-Jesus on a cross didn't really do it.

Jews, Gentiles and us
The world would be an ideal place to inhabit if everyone were the same. But they aren't. That's why our sacred authors frequently have to deal with those "others" - individuals who don't fit the mold in which we were either created or later became.
