It is all-important to keep in view that Christ’s death was His own voluntary act.  Whatever external forces were brought to bear in the accomplishment of it, He died because He chose to die.  The cords which bound this sacrifice to the horns of the altar were cords woven by Himself. – Alexander Maclaren (1826-1910), from a meditation on Mark 10.32.
