A Paixão de Cristo
Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;
And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.
He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.
Surely he has borne our sicknesses, and carried our pains: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
But God commends his love (o. agape) toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
21 For even hereunto were all of you called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that all of you should follow his steps:
22 Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth:
23 Who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed himself to him that judges righteously:
24 Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes all of you were healed.
And the chief priests and all the council sought for witness against Jesus to put him to death; and found none.
Therefore does my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again.
No man takes it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father.
And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.
For even the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.
Then says he unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful, even unto death: tarry all of you here, and watch with me.
From that time forth began Jesus to show unto his disciples, how that he must go unto Jerusalem, and suffer many things of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised again the third day.
