and if in the light we may walk, as He is in the light -- we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son does cleanse us from every sin;
For in our being still ailing, Christ in due time did die for the impious;
for even the Son of Man came not to be ministered to, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.'
and he said, 'Abba, Father; all things are possible to You; make this cup pass from me; but, not what I will, but what You.'
so also the Christ, once having been offered to bear the sins of many, a second time, apart from a sin-offering, shall appear, to those waiting for him -- to salvation!
He who indeed His own Son did not spare, but for us all did deliver him up, how shall He not also with him the all things grant to us?
'Lo, we go up to Jerusalem, and the Son of Man shall be delivered to the chief priests and scribes,
and they shall condemn him to death, and shall deliver him to the nations to mock, and to scourge, and to crucify, and the third day he will rise again.'
how much more shall the blood of the Christ (who through the age-during Spirit did offer himself unblemished to God) purify your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?
and having unclothed him, they put around him a crimson cloak,
and having plaited him a crown out of thorns they put it on his head, and a reed in his right hand, and having kneeled before him, they were mocking him, saying, 'Hail, the king of the Jews.'
and walk in love, as also the Christ did love us, and did give himself for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God for an odour of a sweet smell,
but having gone, learn you what is, Kindness I will, and not sacrifice, for I did not come to call righteous men, but sinners, to reformation.'
even as the Son of Man did not come to be ministered to, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.'
who did give himself for us, that he might ransom us from all lawlessness, and might purify to himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works;
and having cried with a loud voice, Jesus said, 'Father, to Your hands I commit my spirit;' and these things having said, he breathed forth the spirit.
greater love than this has no one, that any one his life may lay down for his friends;
neither present you your members instruments of unrighteousness to the sin, but present yourselves to God as living out of the dead, and your members instruments of righteousness to God;
for whoever may will to save his life, shall lose it, and whoever may lose his life for my sake, he shall save it;
for I delivered to you first, what also I did receive, that Christ died for our sins, according to the Writings,
and that he was buried, and that he has risen on the third day, according to the Writings,
