A Paixão de Cristo
Seeing, then, the children have partaken of flesh and blood, he himself also in like manner did take part of the same, that through death he might destroy him having the power of death -- that is, the devil --
and might deliver those, whoever, with fear of death, throughout all their life, were subjects of bondage,
and God does commend His own love to us, that, in our being still sinners, Christ did die for us;
21 for to this you were called, because Christ also did suffer for you, leaving to you an example, that you may follow his steps,
22 who did not commit sin, nor was guile found in his mouth,
23 who being reviled -- was not reviling again, suffering -- was not threatening, and was committing himself to Him who is judging righteously,
24 who our sins himself did bear in his body, upon the tree, that to the sins having died, to the righteousness we may live; by whose stripes you were healed,
And the chief priests and all the sanhedrin were seeking against Jesus testimony -- to put him to death, and they were not finding,
'Because of this does the Father love me, because I lay down my life, that again I may take it;
no one does take it from me, but I lay it down of myself; authority I have to lay it down, and authority I have again to take it; this command I received from my Father.'
and in fashion having been found as a man, he humbled himself, having become obedient unto death -- death even of a cross,
for even the Son of Man came not to be ministered to, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.'
then said he to them, 'Exceedingly sorrowful is my soul -- unto death; abide you here, and watch with me.'
From that time began Jesus to show to his disciples that it is necessary for him to go away to Jerusalem, and to suffer many things from the elders, and chief priests, and scribes, and to be put to death, and the third day to rise.
