“You know that after two days the Passover is coming,
and the Son of Man will be delivered up to be crucified.”  
Matthew 26:2 

Our Lord subjected His might, and they seized Him,
so that through His living death, He might give life to Adam.
He gave His hands to be pierced by nails
to make up for the hand which plucked the fruit.
He was struck on his cheek in the judgment room
to make up for the mouth that ate in Eden.
And while Adam’s foot was free, His feet were pierced.
Our Lord was stripped that we might be clothed.
With the gall and vinegar He sweetened
the poison of the serpent which had bitten men.

Ephraim of Syria, 4th century
