This chapter presents an essay on different aspects of language and imagery in the Bible related to the sacrifices of Jesus Christ. It discusses a claim that the life of Jesus is the life of the recreating Word and that it is closely linked with the Holy Spirit. It is the Holy Spirit that is the source of Jesus' self-giving humanity and this same Spirit is that which enables believers to share in the one reordering sacrifice.
