Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!
“This is my body which is given for you…. This is my blood. It is poured out for you...”
He was wounded for our transgressions.…
Like a lamb that is led to the slaughter...so he opened not his mouth.
“I am the resurrection and the life….”
...He was raised on the third day in accordance with the scriptures.
“I have overcome the world.”
