"He was despised and rejected by men, a man of sorrows, and familiar with suffering. like one from whom men hide their faces He was despised, and we esteemed Him not. surely He took up our infirmities and carried our sorrows, yet we considered Him stricken by God, smitten by Him, and afflicted. but He was pierced for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon Him, and by His wounds we are healed. we all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way; and the LORD has laid on Him the iniquity of us all." ~isaiah 53:3-6

"you see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. very rarely will anyone die for an unrighteous man, though for a good man someone might possibly dare to die. but God demonstrates His own love for us in this: while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. since we have now been justified by His blood, how much more shall we be saved from God's wrath through Him! for if, when we were God's enemies, we were reconciled to Him through the death of His Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through His life! not only is this so, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation." ~romans 3:6-11

"for the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God." ~1corinthians 1:18
