The Symbol of Christianity
If only the tomb of Christ Jesus had become empty after the Crucifixion and He had never appeared to His Apostles, they should not have preached teaching of Christ Jesus.
So, the Resurrection where Christ Jesus appeared as a living man before the Apostles is the key to foundation of Christianity.
And then Christ Jesus ascended to Heaven from a mountain in Galilee while His disciples were watching. Afterwards, no followers of Christ Jesus saw Him. But as Christ Jesus said to them to preach the gospel to the world, Peter and some others ventured into preaching a mission.
In this context, the symbol of Christianity must be Christ Jesus on His resurrection but not an image of Christ Jesus on the cross.

Mar 5:23 And besought him greatly, saying, My little daughter lieth at the point of death: I pray thee, come and lay thy hands on her, that she may be healed; and she shall live.
