1 Peter 2:18-23 The Passion Translation (TPT)

The Example of Christ’s Sufferings

18 Those who are servants,[a] submit to[b] the authority of those who are your masters—not only to those who are kind and gentle but even to those who are hard and difficult. 19 You find God’s favor by deciding to please God even when you endure hardships because of unjust suffering. 20 For what merit is it to endure mistreatment for wrongdoing? Yet if you are mistreated when you do what is right, and you faithfully endure it, this is commendable before God. 21 In fact, you were called to live this way, because Christ also suffered in your place, leaving you his example for you to follow.

22 He never sinned
    and he never spoke deceitfully.[c]

23 When he was verbally abused, he did not return with an insult; when he suffered, he would not threaten retaliation.[d] Jesus faithfully entrusted himself into the hands of God, who judges righteously.

Matthew 27:33-34 The Passion Translation (TPT)

The Crucifixion

33 They brought Jesus to Golgotha, which means “Skull Hill.”[a] 34 And there the soldiers offered him a mild painkiller, a drink of wine mixed with gall,[b] but after tasting it, he refused to drink it.

Footnotes:

  1. Matthew 27:33 The Aramaic word Golgotha is, in Latin, calvaria, or Calvary. David brought Goliath’s head (Goliath and Golgotha are taken from the same root word) and buried it outside of Jerusalem. Some believe this is where it got its name, Golgotha (the place of the skull). The cross has to pierce the place of the skull for our minds to submit to the revelation of the cross.
  2. Matthew 27:34 See Ps. 69:21.

Hebrews 13:11-13 The Passion Translation (TPT)

11 For the high priest carries the blood of animals into the holiest chamber as a sacrifice for sin, and then burns the bodies of the animals outside the city.[a] 12 And Jesus, our sin-sacrifice, also suffered death outside the city walls to make us holy by his own blood.

13 So we must arise and join him outside the religious “walls” and bear his disgrace.[b]

Footnotes:

  1. Hebrews 13:11 See Lev. 16:14, 27.
  2. Hebrews 13:13 Or “carry his insults” or “endure the abuse he suffered.”
