By the hand of His own Father!

(John Flavel, "The Fountain of Life" 1671)

"He was pierced for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon Him, and by His wounds we are healed!" Isaiah 53:5

Yet it was the LORD's will to crush Him and cause Him to suffer. When You make His soul an offering for sin . . ."
Isaiah 53:10

To wrath, to the wrath of an infinite God without mixture — to the very torments of Hell was Christ delivered — and that by the hand of His own Father! Surely then, that love is fathomless, which made the Father of mercies deliver His only Son to such miseries for us sinners!
