‘Greater love has no one than this:
to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.’
All through the ages, men and women have given their lives to protect loved ones, friends and their country.
Now Jesus was about to do the same. His great love was taking him into a battle where the future of mankind was at stake, and where the unsearchable love of God would extract a payment so incalculable that it demanded the life of his only Son. And freed us for ever.
