Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.
I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of Man be lifted up
