The highest point that may be seen in the Passion is to think and know that he is that suffered. And in this Shewing he brought in part to mind the height and nobleness of the glorious Godhead, and wherewith the preciousness and the tenderness of the blissful Body, which be together oned; and also the lathness that is in our kind to suffer pain. For as much as he was most tender and clean, right so he was most strong and mighty to suffer.
And for every man's sin that shall be saved he suffered: and every man's sorrow and desolation he saw, and sorrowed for kindness and love. For as long as he was passible he suffered for us and sorrowed for us; and now he is uprisen and no more passible, yet he suffereth with us.
