Our LORD JESUS CHRIST allowed HIMSELF to be crucified and murdered. No one can otherwise capture HIM, or tie HIS most holy hands behind HIM, or handcuff HIM, or pull HIM hither and thither by chains in HIS most holy waist, or drop HIM to the ground, or drop HIM into a deep and dark pit, or beat HIM, or scourge HIM, or ridicule HIM, or spit on HIS most holy face, or pull out HIS most holy beard, or beat on HIS most holy face, or mock at HIM, or crucify HIM, or murder HIM.
A great multitude of people with a number of soldiers headed by the betrayer Judas went to the garden of Gethsemane with lanterns, torches and weapons to capture HIM. JESUS had known everything that was going to happen. JESUS went to them and asked, “WHOM SEEK YE?” They replied that they were seeking JESUS of Nazareth. JESUS said to them, “I AM HE”. As soon as HE had said, “I AM HE”, the great multitude went backward and fell to the ground. See St. John 18:1-6.
Our LORD JESUS CHRIST is the great “I AM”, such an all-powerful and Almighty GOD. HE came to the world to shed HIS most holy blood and to die on the cross, to be buried and resurrected on the third day for mankind. Our LORD JESUS CHRIST fulfilled all these things for His people to be HIM forever in HIS everlasting kingdom. Praise The LORD! Alleluia!
