Jesus was the quiet lamb led to the slaughter. He did not complain nor lash out at those reviling Him. He gave His life in humble sacrifice to demonstrate to us the nature of God. That is, in His crucifixion we find out what God was made of.
God is patient, God is kind, and is not jealous; God does not brag and is not arrogant, does not act unbecomingly; God does not seek His own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered, does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth. God bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. God never fails.
This is the nature of God. And Jesus – the Lamb of God – fully reveals that nature to us.
