O LORD, who for our sake didst fast forty days and forty nights; Give us grace to use such abstinence, that, our flesh being subdued to the Spirit, we may ever obey thy godly motions in righteousness, and true holiness, to thy honour and glory, who livest and reignest with the Father and the Holy Ghost, one God, world without end. Amen.

Westminster Larger Catechism: Question 49

Question 49

How did Christ humble himself in his death?

Christ humbled himself in his death, in that having been betrayed by Judas, (Matt. 27:4) forsaken by his disciples, (Matt. 26:56) scorned and rejected by the world, (Isa. 53:2–3) condemned by Pilate, and tormented by his persecutors; (Matt. 27:26–50, John 19:34) having also conflicted with the terrors of death, and the powers of darkness, felt and borne the weight of God’ s wrath, (Luke 22:44, Matt. 27:46) he laid down his life an offering for sin, (Isa. 53:10) enduring the painful, shameful, and cursed death of the cross. (Phil. 2:8, Heb. 12:2, Gal. 3:13)
