Before reading here, please read the sections Jesus As Word, He Sent Jesus, and Jesus’ Mission. Jesus’ Mission explains why Jesus needed to die and shed His Blood in order for us to be restored to the Father-child, Heart-to-heart relationship with Father God for which we are designed.
 
There is no One Who wants relationship with you more than Father God. He sent Jesus to earth to live ― more specifically, to die ― so that Father God could enjoy [yes, enjoy] relationship with you eternally.






Galatians 1:3-5
    3 Grace and spiritual blessing be to you and [soul] peace from God the Father and our Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah),
    4 Who gave (yielded) Himself up [to atone] for our sins [and to save and sanctify us], in order to rescue and deliver us from this present wicked age and world order, in accordance with the will and purpose and plan of our God and Father—
    5 To Him [be ascribed all] the glory through all the ages of the ages and the eternities of the eternities! Amen (so be it).

 


Once you have read these other sections, then you will have the foundation for what is offered here.
 
John 1:29
    29The next day John saw Jesus coming to him and said, Look! There is the Lamb of God, Who takes away the sin of the world!
 

We’ll start by looking at Jesus as the Lamb Who was slaughtered, and we’ll end by looking at Jesus, the Lamb Who Conquered!
 
As you know from Jesus’ Mission, the requirement of the Jewish Law was that the sacrifice was to be unblemished. Let’s see if Jesus fulfilled these requirements:
 
The only sinless Man is, has been, or ever will be, Jesus.
 
1 Peter 2:22
    22He (Jesus) was guilty of no sin, neither was deceit (guile) ever found on His lips.

 
Isaiah 53:9
    9And they assigned Him a grave with the wicked, and with a rich man in His death, although He had done no violence, neither was any deceit in His mouth.

 
Hebrews 7:26
    26[Here is] the High Priest [perfectly adapted] to our needs, as was fitting--holy, blameless, unstained by sin, separated from sinners, and exalted higher than the heavens.

 
2 Corinthians 5:21
    21For our sake He made Christ [virtually] to be sin Who knew no sin, so that in and through Him we might become [endued with, viewed as being in, and examples of] the righteousness of God [what we ought to be, approved and acceptable and in right relationship with Him, by His goodness].

 
Hebrews 2:18
    18For because He Himself [in His humanity] has suffered in being tempted (tested and tried [and yet He did not yield to temptation]), He is able [immediately] to run to the cry of (assist, relieve) those who are being tempted and tested and tried [and who therefore are being exposed to suffering].

 
1 John 3:3
    3And everyone who has this hope [resting] on Him cleanses (purifies) himself just as He [Jesus] is pure (chaste, undefiled, guiltless).

 
1 John 3:5
    5You know that He appeared in visible form and became Man to take away [upon Himself] sins, and in Him there is no sin [essentially and forever].

 
Numbers 23:19
    19God is not a man, that He should tell or act a lie, neither the son of man, that He should feel repentance or regret [for what He has promised]. Has He said and shall He not do it? Or has He spoken and shall He not make it good?

 
John 3:33
    33Whoever receives His testimony has set his seal of approval to this: God is true. [That man has definitely certified, acknowledged, declared once and for all, and is himself assured that it is divine truth that God cannot lie].

 
Romans 8:3
    3For God has done what the Law could not do, [its power] being weakened by the flesh [the entire nature of man without the Holy Spirit]. Sending His own Son in the guise [appearance, costume] of sinful flesh and as an offering for sin, [God] condemned sin in the flesh [subdued, overcame, deprived it of its power over all who accept that sacrifice].

 
Hebrews 4:15-16
    15For we do not have a High Priest Who is unable to understand and sympathize and have a shared feeling with our weaknesses and infirmities and liability to the assaults of temptation, but One Who has been tempted in every respect as we are, yet without sinning.
    16Let us then fearlessly and confidently and boldly draw near to the throne of grace (the throne of God's unmerited favor to us sinners), that we may receive mercy [for our failures] and find grace to help in good time for every need [appropriate help and well-timed help, coming just when we need it].

 
As Jesus went forward toward His destiny, He was silent as a lamb.
 
Matthew 12:18-19
    18Behold, My Servant Whom I have chosen, My Beloved in and with Whom My soul is well pleased and has found its delight. I will put My Spirit upon Him, and He shall proclaim and show forth justice to the nations.
    19He will not strive or wrangle or cry out loudly; nor will anyone hear His voice in the streets;

 
Matthew 26:62-63
    62And the high priest stood up and said, Have You no answer to make? What about this that these men testify against You?
    63But Jesus kept silent. And the high priest said to Him, I call upon you to swear by the living God, and tell us whether you are the Christ, the Son of God.

 
Mark 14:60-61
    60And the high priest stood up in the midst and asked Jesus, Have You not even one answer to make? What [about this which] these [men] are testifying against You?
    61But He kept still and did not answer at all. Again the high priest asked Him, Are You the Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One), the Son of the Blessed?

 
John 19:10
    10So Pilate said to Him, Will You not speak [even] to me? Do You not know that I have power (authority) to release You and I have power to crucify You?

 
1 Peter 2:23
    23When He was reviled and insulted, He did not revile or offer insult in return; [when] He was abused and suffered, He made no threats [of vengeance]; but he trusted [Himself and everything] to Him Who judges fairly [God].

 
Acts 8:32
    32Now this was the passage of Scripture which he was reading: Like a sheep He was led to the slaughter, and as a lamb before its shearer is dumb, so He opens not His mouth.

 
The Word Who Became Man chose silence.
 
Jesus is called the Passover Lamb.
 
Similarly to the first Passover, when the Angel of Death saw blood he passed over the homes of those who had set themselves apart by a lamb’s blood, Jesus’ Blood protects us from eternal death.
 
Though our physical bodies will die, if our sins have been covered by the Blood of Jesus, our spirits will enjoy the manifest presence of God the Father, Jesus, and God the Holy Spirit ― eternally!
 
1 Corinthians 5:7
    7Purge (clean out) the old leaven that you may be fresh (new) dough, still uncontaminated [as you are], for Christ, our Passover [Lamb], has been sacrificed.

 
1 Peter 1:19
    19But [you were purchased] with the precious blood of Christ (the Messiah), like that of a [sacrificial] lamb without blemish or spot.

 
John 1:36
    36And he looked at Jesus as He walked along, and said, Look! There is the Lamb of God!

 
Let’s look again at what Isaiah prophesied about Jesus 750 years before God sent Jesus and Jesus was crucified.
 
Isaiah 52:14-15
    14[For many the Servant of God became an object of horror; many were astonished at Him.] His face and His whole appearance were marred more than any man's, and His form beyond that of the sons of men--but just as many were astonished at Him,
    15So shall He startle and sprinkle many nations [with His Blood], and kings shall shut their mouths because of Him; for that which has not been told them shall they see, and that which they have not heard shall they consider and understand.

 
Isaiah 53:All
    1Who has believed (trusted in, relied upon, and clung to) our message [of that which was revealed to us]? And to whom has the arm of the Lord been disclosed?
    2For [the Servant of God] grew up before Him like a tender plant, and like a root out of dry ground; He has no form or comeliness [royal, kingly pomp], that we should look at Him, and no beauty that we should desire Him.
    3He was despised and rejected and forsaken by men, a Man of sorrows and pains, and acquainted with grief and sickness; and like One from Whom men hide their faces He was despised, and we did not appreciate His worth or have any esteem for Him.
    4Surely He has borne our griefs (sicknesses, weaknesses, and distresses) and carried our sorrows and pains [of punishment], yet we [ignorantly] considered Him stricken, smitten, and afflicted by God [as if with leprosy].
    5But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our guilt and iniquities; the chastisement [needful to obtain] peace and well-being for us was upon Him, and with the stripes [that wounded] Him we are healed and made whole.
    6All we like sheep have gone astray, we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord has made to light upon Him the guilt and iniquity of us all.
    7He was oppressed, [yet when] He was afflicted, He was submissive and opened not His mouth; like a lamb that is led to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so He opened not His mouth.
    8By oppression and judgment He was taken away; and as for His generation, who among them considered that He was cut off out of the land of the living [stricken to His death] for the transgression of my [Isaiah's] people, to whom the stroke was due?
    9And they assigned Him a grave with the wicked, and with a rich man in His death, although He had done no violence, neither was any deceit in His mouth.
    10Yet it was the will of the Lord to bruise Him; He has put Him to grief and made Him sick. When You and He make His life an offering for sin [and He has risen from the dead, in time to come], He shall see His [spiritual] offspring, He shall prolong His days, and the will and pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in His hand.
    11He shall see [the fruit] of the travail of His soul and be satisfied; by His knowledge of Himself [which He possesses and imparts to others] shall My [uncompromisingly] righteous One, My Servant, justify many and make many righteous (upright and in right standing with God), for He shall bear their iniquities and their guilt [with the consequences, says the Lord].
    12Therefore will I divide Him a portion with the great [kings and rulers], and He shall divide the spoil with the mighty, because He poured out His life unto death, and [He let Himself] be regarded as a criminal and be numbered with the transgressors; yet He bore [and took away] the sin of many and made intercession for the transgressors (the rebellious).

 
Jesus said:
 
John 10:15
    15Even as [truly as] the Father knows Me and I also know the Father--and I AM giving My [very own] life and laying it down on behalf of the sheep.

 
John 10:17
    17For this [reason] the Father loves Me, because I lay down My [own] life--to take it back again.

 
John 10:18
    18No one takes it away from Me. On the contrary, I lay it down voluntarily. [I put it from Myself.]
I AM authorized and have power to lay it down (to resign it) and I AM authorized and have power to take it back again. These are the instructions (orders) which I have received [as My charge] from My Father.
 
Jesus spoke about His Blood:
 
Matthew 26:28
    28For this is My blood of the new covenant, which [ratifies the agreement and] is being poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.

 
Mark 14:24
    24And He said to them, This is My blood [which ratifies] the new covenant, [the blood] which is being poured out for (on account of) many.

 
Luke 22:20
    20And in like manner, He took the cup after supper, saying, This cup is the new testament or covenant [ratified] in My blood, which is shed (poured out) for you.

 
Others spoke about Jesus’ Blood as well:
 
Matthew 27:3-4
    3When Judas, His betrayer, saw that [Jesus] was condemned, [Judas was afflicted in mind and troubled for his former folly; and] with remorse he brought back the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders.
    4Saying, I have sinned in betraying innocent blood. They replied, What is that to us? See to that yourself.

 
Matthew 27:24
    24So when Pilate saw that he was getting nowhere, but rather that a riot was about to break out, he took water and washed his hands in the presence of the crowd, saying, I am not guilty of nor responsible for this righteous Man's blood; see to it yourselves.

 
Acts 8:33
    33In His humiliation He was taken away by distressing and oppressive judgment and justice was denied Him [caused to cease]. Who can describe or relate in full the wickedness of His contemporaries (generation)? For His life is taken from the earth and a bloody death inflicted upon Him.

 
Acts 20:28
    28Take care and be on guard for yourselves and the whole flock over which the Holy Spirit has appointed you bishops and guardians, to shepherd (tend and feed and guide) the church of the Lord or of God which He obtained for Himself [buying it and saving it for Himself] with His own blood.

 
Romans 3:25
   25Whom God put forward [before the eyes of all] as a mercy seat and propitiation by His blood [the cleansing and life-giving sacrifice of atonement and reconciliation, to be received] through faith. This was to show God's righteousness, because in His divine forbearance He had passed over and ignored former sins without punishment.

 
1 Corinthians 10:16
    16The cup of blessing [of wine at the Lord's Supper] upon which we ask [God's] blessing, does it not mean [that in drinking it] we participate in and share a fellowship (a communion) in the blood of Christ (the Messiah)? The bread which we break, does it not mean [that in eating it] we participate in and share a fellowship (a communion) in the body of Christ?

 
1 Corinthians 11:25
    25Similarly when supper was ended, He took the cup [of Holy Communion] also, saying, This cup is the new covenant [ratified and established] in My blood. Do this, as often as you drink [it], to call Me [affectionately] to remembrance.

 
Galatians 2:20
    20I have been crucified with Christ [in Him I have shared His crucifixion]; it is no longer I who live, but Christ (the Messiah) lives in me; and the life I now live in the body I live by faith in (by adherence to and reliance on and complete trust in) the Son of God, Who loved me and gave Himself up for me.

 
Ephesians 2:13
    13But now in Christ Jesus, you who once were [so] far away, through (by, in) the blood of Christ have been brought near.

 
Ephesians 4:7
    7But to each one of us grace was given according to the measure of Christ's gift.

 
Colossians 1:13-14
    13[The Father] has delivered and drawn us to Himself out of the control and the dominion of darkness and has transferred us into the kingdom of the Son of His love,
   14In Whom we have our redemption through His blood, [which means] the forgiveness of our sins.

 
Colossians 1:20
    20And God purposed that through (by the service, the intervention of) Him [the Son] all things should be completely reconciled back to Himself, whether on earth or in heaven, as through Him, [the Father] made peace by means of the blood of His cross.

 
Hebrews 2:14-15
    14Since, therefore, [these His] children share in flesh and blood [in the physical nature of human beings], He [Himself] in a similar manner partook of the same [nature], that by [going through] death He might bring to nought (nothing) and make of no effect him who had the power of death--that is, the devil--
    15And also that He might deliver and completely set free all those who through the [haunting] fear of death were held in bondage throughout the whole course of their lives.

 
Hebrews 2:18
    18For because He Himself [in His humanity] has suffered in being tempted (tested and tried), He is able [immediately] to run to the cry of (assist, relieve) those who are being tempted and tested and tried [and who therefore are being exposed to suffering].

 
Hebrews 5:9
    9And, [His completed experience] making Him perfectly [equipped], He became the Author and Source of eternal salvation to all those who give heed and obey Him,

 
Hebrews 7:25-28
    25Therefore He is able also to save to the uttermost (completely, perfectly, finally, and for all time and eternity) those who come to God through Him, since He is always living to make petition to God and intercede with Him and intervene for them.
    26[Here is] the High Priest [perfectly adapted] to our needs, as was fitting--holy, blameless, unstained by sin, separated from sinners, and exalted higher than the heavens.
    27He has no day by day necessity, as [do each of these other] high priests, to offer sacrifice first of all for his own [personal] sins and then for those of the people, because He [met all the requirements] once for all when He brought Himself [as a sacrifice] which He offered up.
    28For the Law sets up men in their weakness [frail, sinful, dying human beings] as high priests, but the word of [God's] oath, which [was spoken later] after the institution of the Law, [chooses and appoints as priest One Whose appointment is complete and permanent], a Son Who has been made perfect forever.

 
Hebrews 9:11-16
    11But [that appointed time came] when Christ (the Messiah) appeared as a High Priest of the better things that have come and are to come. [Then] through the greater and more perfect tabernacle not made with [human] hands, that is, not a part of this material creation,
    12He went once for all into the [Holy of] Holies [of heaven], not by virtue of the blood of goats and calves [by which to make reconciliation between God and man], but His own blood, having found and secured a complete redemption (an everlasting release for us).
    13For if [the mere] sprinkling of unholy and defiled persons with blood of goats and bulls and with the ashes of a burnt heifer [cow] is sufficient for the purification of the body,
    14How much more surely shall the blood of Christ, Who by virtue of [His] eternal Spirit [His own preexistent divine personality] has offered Himself as an unblemished sacrifice to God, purify our consciences from dead works and lifeless observances to serve the [ever] living God?
    15[Christ, the Messiah] is therefore the Negotiator and Mediator of an [entirely] new agreement (testament, covenant), so that those who are called and offered it may receive the fulfillment of the promised everlasting inheritance--since a death has taken place which rescues and delivers and redeems them from the transgressions committed under the [old] first agreement.
    16For where there is a [last] will and testament involved, the death of the one who made it must be established,

 
Hebrews 9:28
    28Even so it is that Christ, having been offered to take upon Himself and bear as a burden the sins of many once and once for all, will appear a second time, not to carry any burden of sin nor to deal with sin, but to bring to full salvation those who are [eagerly, constantly, and patiently] waiting for and expecting Him.

 
Hebrews 10:19
    19Therefore, brethren, since we have full freedom and confidence to enter into the [Holy of] Holies [by the power and virtue] in the blood of Jesus,

 
Hebrews 13:20-21
    20Now may the God of peace [Who is the Author and the Giver of peace], Who brought again from among the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, by the blood [that sealed, ratified] the everlasting agreement (covenant, testament),
    21Strengthen (complete, perfect) and make you what you ought to be and equip you with everything good that you may carry out His will; [while He Himself] works in you and accomplishes that which is pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ (the Messiah); to Whom be the glory forever and ever (to the ages of the ages). Amen (so be it).

 
1 Peter 1:1-5
    1Peter, an apostle (a special messenger) of Jesus Christ, [writing] to [those]
    2Who were chosen and foreknown by God the Father and consecrated (sanctified, made holy) by the Spirit to be obedient to Jesus Christ (the Messiah) and to be sprinkled with [His] blood: May grace (spiritual blessing) and peace be given you in increasing abundance [that spiritual peace to be realized in and through Christ, freedom from fears, agitating passions, and moral conflicts].
    3Praised (honored, blessed) be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah)! By His boundless mercy we have been born again to an ever-living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,
    4[Born anew] into an inheritance which is beyond the reach of change and decay [imperishable], unsullied and unfading, reserved in heaven for you,
    5Who are being guarded (garrisoned) by God's power through [your] faith [till you fully inherit that final] salvation that is ready to be revealed [for you] in the last time.

 
1 Peter 2:24
    24He personally bore our sins in His [own] body on the tree [the cross, as on an altar and offered Himself on it], that we might die (cease to exist) to sin and live to righteousness. By His wounds you have been healed.

 
1 John 1:7
    7But if we [really] are living and walking in the Light, as He [Himself] is in the Light, we have [true, unbroken] fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses (removes) us from all sin and guilt [keeps us cleansed from sin in all its forms and manifestations].

 
There are a number of verses in the Bible which call Jesus’ Blood our purchase price:
 
1 Peter 1:18-21
    18You must know (recognize) that you were redeemed (ransomed) from the useless (fruitless) way of living inherited by tradition from [your] forefathers, not with corruptible things [such as] silver and gold,
    19But [you were purchased] with the precious blood of Christ (the Messiah), like that of a [sacrificial] lamb without blemish or spot.
    20It is true that He was chosen and foreordained (destined and foreknown for it) before the foundation of the world, but He was brought out to public view (made manifest) in these last days (at the end of the times) for the sake of you.
    21Through Him you believe in (adhere to, rely on) God, Who raised Him up from the dead and gave Him honor and glory, so that your faith and hope are [centered and rest] in God.

 
Matthew 20:28
    28Just as the Son of Man came not to be waited on but to serve, and to give His life as a ransom for many [the price paid to set them free].

 
Acts 20:28
    28Be on guard for yourselves and for all the flock, among which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to shepherd the church of God which He purchased [buying it and saving it for Himself] with His own blood.

 
Romans 4:25
    25Who was betrayed and put to death because of our misdeeds and was raised to secure our justification (our acquittal), [making our account balance and absolving us from all guilt before God].

 
1 Corinthians 1:30
    30But it is from Him that you have your life in Christ Jesus, Whom God made our Wisdom from God, [revealed to us a knowledge of the divine plan of salvation previously hidden, manifesting itself as] our Righteousness [thus making us upright and putting us in right standing with God], and our Consecration [making us pure and holy], and our Redemption [providing our ransom from eternal penalty for sin].

 
1 Corinthians 6:19-20
    19Do you not know that your body is the temple (the very sanctuary) of the Holy Spirit Who lives within you, Whom you have received [as a Gift] from God? You are not your own,
    20You were bought with a price [purchased with a preciousness and paid for, made His own]. So then, honor God and bring glory to Him in your body.

 
Galatians 1:4
    4Who gave (yielded) Himself up [ to atone] for our sins [and to save and sanctify us], in order to rescue and deliver us from this present wicked age and world order, in accordance with the will and purpose and plan of our God and Father--

 
Galatians 3:13
    13Christ purchased our freedom [redeeming us] from the curse (doom) of the Law [and its condemnation] by [Himself] becoming a curse for us, for it is written [in the Scriptures], Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree (is crucified);

 
1 Timothy 2:5-6
     5For there [is only] one God, and [only] one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus,
    6Who gave Himself as a ransom for all [people, a fact that was] attested to at the right and proper time.

 
Titus 2:11
    11For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation to all men.

 
Titus 2:14
    14Who gave Himself on our behalf that He might redeem us (purchase our freedom) from all iniquity and purify for Himself a people [to be peculiarly His own, people who are] eager and enthusiastic about [living a life that is good and filled with] beneficial deeds.

 
1 Peter 2:9
    9But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a dedicated nation, [God's] own purchased, special people, that you may set forth the wonderful deeds and display the virtues and perfections of Him Who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.

 
Galatians 4:4-6
    4But when the proper time had fully come, God sent His Son, born of a woman, born subject to [the regulations of] the Law,
    5To purchase the freedom of (to ransom, to redeem, to atone for) those who were subject to the Law, that we might be adopted and have sonship conferred upon us [and be recognized as God's sons].
    6And because you [really] are [His] sons, God has sent the [Holy] Spirit of His Son into our hearts, crying, Abba (Father)! Father!

 
Romans 8:32-35
    32He who did not withhold or spare [even] His own Son but gave Him up for us all, will He not also with Him freely and graciously give us all [other] things?
    33Who shall bring any charge against God's elect [when it is] God Who justifies [that is, Who puts us in right relation to Himself? Who shall come forward and accuse or impeach those whom God has chosen? Will God, Who acquits [frees] us?]
    34Who is there to condemn [us]? Will Christ Jesus (the Messiah), Who died, or rather Who was raised from the dead, Who is at the right hand of God actually pleading as He intercedes for us?
    35Who shall ever separate us from Christ's love? Shall suffering and affliction and tribulation? Or calamity and distress? Or persecution or hunger or destitution or peril or sword?

 
Romans 8:37-39
    37Yet amid all these things we are more than conquerors and gain a surpassing victory through Him Who loved us.
    38For I am persuaded beyond doubt (am sure) that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities, nor things impending and threatening nor things to come, nor powers,
    39Nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation will be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Many interesting concepts have been presented to you. Why not spend some time now reviewing He Sent Jesus, Jesus’ Mission, and Jesus’ Exchanges, and what you have read to this point in this section, and decide about Jesus for yourself. In your own words, answer:
 
Was Jesus sent? By Whom? What was God’s true motivation in sending Jesus?
 
What was Jesus’ mission? Did Jesus accomplish that which He was sent to accomplish?

The Book of Revelation describes the future of all Believers as they bask throughout eternity in God’s Presence. How can you join them? Acknowledge that Jesus’ Blood accomplished all that was necessary to restore you to the Father-child relationship with God for which you were designed.
 
Jesus is the only Way to the Father.
 
John 14:6
    6Jesus said to him, I AM the Way and the Truth and the Life; no one comes to the Father except by (through) Me.

 
Ask Jesus to remove your sins with His Blood, to dwell within your heart, to be your Lord. This one simple invitation to Jesus will secure your eternity. All the glorious promises of Revelation will then be yours.
 
Let’s look at passages in the Book of Revelation which exalt Jesus, the All-Triumphant Sacrifice Lamb, Who offered up Himself to death for you.
 
Revelation 1:4-7
    4John to the seven assemblies (churches) that are in Asia: May grace (God's unmerited favor) be granted to you and spiritual peace (the peace of Christ's kingdom) from Him Who is and Who was and Who is to come, and from the seven Spirits [the sevenfold Holy Spirit] before His throne,
    5And from Jesus Christ the faithful and trustworthy Witness, the Firstborn of the dead [first to be brought back to life] and the Prince (Ruler) of the kings of the earth. To Him Who ever loves us and has once [for all] loosed and freed us from our sins by His own blood,
    6And formed us into a kingdom (a royal race), priests to His God and Father--to Him be the glory and the power and the majesty and the dominion throughout the ages and forever and ever. Amen (so be it).
    7Behold, He is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see Him, even those who pierced Him; and all the tribes of the earth shall gaze upon Him and beat their breasts and mourn and lament over Him. Even so [must it be]. Amen (so be it).
