The Active Obedience of Christ

Although he was a son, he learned obedience through what he suffered.       – Hebrews 5:8

If the Son of God had gone from incarnation to the cross without a life of temptation and pain to test his righteousness and his love, he would not be a suitable Savior for fallen man.                    – John Piper (Fifty Reasons why Jesus Came to Die)
