Jesus is the holy One, who has the Words of eternal life.
He lived like no one on earth has ever lived.
He loved like no one on earth has ever loved.
He gave sight to the blind.
He made the lame to walk.
He caused the deaf to hear.
He raise the dead to life.
He fed the hungry.
Most of all, 
He shed His own blood so that those who had hated & reviled Him
might have a way to be made right with His Father. 

And yet, He was despised & rejected by His own people,
spurred on by religious leaders of the covenant community,
who cried out;
"Crucify Him!" 
"Let His blood be upon us & our children!"
He was beaten, spat upon, mocked & scorned.
His beautiful back was scourged.
His lovely brow was pierced with a crown of thorns.
They pulled out Jesus' beard
& nailed our blessed Savior to a Cross.
The perfect, holy Son of God died as a criminal,
between two thieves.
This is Jesusthe Christ.
The Messiah.
This is the Lamb of God
who takes away the sins of His people.

Glory to Christ!
