The Lamb who was killed. — Rev 13:8 NET
“Your lamb must be perfect,… and … the whole community of Israel will kill it around sundown. They will take some of the blood and put it on the two side posts and top of the doorframe of the houses where they will eat it…. when I see the blood I will pass over you.”—The sprinkled blood.—Christ, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed.—“Was handed over by the predetermined plan and foreknowledge of God.”—But on his own purpose and grace, granted to us in Christ Jesus before time began.
In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses.—Since Christ suffered in the flesh, you also arm yourselves with the same attitude, because the one who has suffered in the flesh has finished with sin, in that he spends the rest of his time on earth concerned about the will of God and not human desires.
Exod 12:5-7, Exod 12:13, Heb 12:24, 1 Cor 5:7, Acts 2:23, 2 Tim 1:9, Eph 1:7, 1 Pet 4:1-2
“I have stomped grapes in the winepress all by myself.” — Isa 63:3 NET
“Who is like you, O Lord, among the gods? Who is like you? – majestic in holiness, fearful in praises, working wonders?”—[The Lord] sees there is no advocate; he is shocked that no one intervenes. So he takes matters into his own hands; his desire for justice drives him on.—He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree.—Becoming a curse for us.
Sing to the Lord a new song, for he performs amazing deeds! His right hand and his mighty arm accomplish deliverance.—Disarming the rulers and authorities, he has made a public disgrace of them, triumphing over them by the cross.—Having suffered, he will reflect on his work, he will be satisfied when he understands what he has done. “My servant will acquit many, for he carried their sins.”
“Step on the necks of the strong!”—We have complete victory through him who loved us!—“They overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony.”
