He was baptized as man
But he remitted sins as God.
But he fed thousands.
But he cried, "If any man is thirsty, let him come unto me and drink."
He was weary
But he is the rest of the weary and heavy laden.
He is called a Samaritan, demonically possessed
But he saves the man who came down from Jerusalem and fell among thieves.
He is stoned
But is not hit.
Yet he hears prayer.
He asks where Lazarus was laid, for he was man
But he raises Lazarus, for he was God.
He is sold, and very cheap (thirty pieces of silver)
But he redeems the world, at great price (the price of his own blood).
He is led to the slaughter as a sheep
But he is the Shepherd of Israel.
He is bruised and wounded
But he heals every diseaseevery infirmity.
He is lifted up and nailed to the Tree
But by the Tree of Life, he restores us.
He is given vinegar to drink, mingled with gall.
And who is he? The One who turned water into wine.
Who destroys the bitter taste
Who is altogether sweetness and desire.
He lays down his life
But he has power to take it again.
But he gives life and by his death destroys death.
He is buried
But he rises again.
