Jesus began his ministry by being hungry,
yet he is the Bread of Life.
Jesus ended his earthly ministry by being thirsty,
yet he is the Living Water.
Jesus was weary,
yet he is our rest.
Jesus paid tribute,
yet he is the King.
Jesus was accused of having a demon,
yet he cast out demons.
yet he wipes away our tears.
Jesus was sold for 30 pieces of silver,
yet he redeemed the world.
Jesus was brought as a lamb to the slaughter,
yet he is the Good Shepherd.
yet by his death he destroyed the power
Gregory of Nazianzus
(fourth-century church father)
