Short statement

After Luke 22:39-45

It is a short statement

he makes, as the end

draws near and disciples

gather round, a simple

statement that he is

to be counted among

the transgressors, he is

to be numbered among

the criminals.

Transgressors and

criminals often face

death. But here, 

in this court case, 

the sentence will be

meted out to fulfill

the prophecy, to fulfill

the word of the prophet:

he poured out his soul

to death,

he bore the sin of many

to death.
