Answerest thou nothing? behold how many things they witness against
thee. But Jesus yet answered nothing; so that Pilate marvelled.

Isaiah 53:7 He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened
not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a
sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.

3. The Sacrificial Lamb - John 10:15-18 As the Father knoweth me,
even so know I the Father: and I lay down my life for the sheep. And other
sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they
shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.
Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might
take it again. No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have
power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This
commandment have I received of my Father.

Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For the law of the

Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have

the King of glory shall come in. Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts,
he is the King of glory. Selah.

power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first,
and also to the Greek.

Romans 3:21-26 But now the righteousness of God without the law is
manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets; Even the
righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all
them that believe: for there is no difference: For all have sinned, and come
short of the glory of God; Being justified freely by his grace through the
redemption that is in Christ Jesus: Whom God hath set forth to be a
propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the
remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God; To
declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the
justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.
