Gave Him Up and Gave Himself Up

“In answer to the question ‘Why did Christ die?’ we reflected that, although Judas delivered him to the priests, the priests to Pilate, and Pilate to the soldiers, the New Testament indicates that both the Father ‘gave him up’ and that Jesus ‘gave himself up’ for us”

(John Stott, The Cross of Christ, 20th Anniversary ed. Downers Grove, IL: InterVarsity Press, 2006, p. 329).
