Matthew 27 - Matthew Henry's Concise Commentary on the Bible

Christ led to be crucified.

Christ was led as a Lamb to the slaughter, as a Sacrifice to the altar. Even the mercies of the wicked are really cruel. Taking the cross from him, they compelled one Simon to bear it. Make us ready, O Lord, to bear the cross thou hast appointed us, and daily to take it up with cheerfulness, following thee. Was ever sorrow like unto his sorrow? And when we behold what manner of death he died, let us in that behold with what manner of love he loved us. As if death, so painful a death,

were not enough, they added to its bitterness and terror in several ways. (Mt 27:35-44)
