He began His ministry by being hungry, yet He is the Bread of Life.

Jesus ended His ministry by being thirsty, yet He is the living water.

Jesus was weary, yet He is our rest.
Jesus paid tribute, yet He is King.

Jesus was accused of having a demon yet He cast out demons.

Jesus wept, yet He wipes away our tears.

Jesus was sold for 30 pieces of silver, yet He redeemed the world.

Jesus was brought as a lamb to the slaughter, yet He is the Good Shepherd.

Jesus died, yet by His death He destroyed the power of death.

[Gregory of Nazianzus A.D. 381]

Matthew 16:16 ... And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.
