“If Christ had that worldly logic that many spiritual people have today, He would not have left His Throne in Heaven to descend to earth, to suffer and be crucified for us miserable human beings. But hidden within His apparently human failure … is the salvation of us all. And what He endured to bring about our salvation! He humbled Himself utterly, to the point of being slapped and mocked… The Jews were playing a cruel game with Jesus. You know how saddened I was when as a little boy I would see the children playing the game hot cock – imagine now playing this game with Christ, striking Him from behind and telling Him to guess who it was that struck Him! What a terrible thing!”
