17 The reason my Father loves me is that I lay down my life(A)—only to take it up again.
18 No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord.(A) I have authority to lay it down and authority to take it up again. This command I received from my Father.”(B)
13 Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.(A)
16 This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us.(A) And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters.(B)
