ABSTRACT
The article reflects on Jesus' passion. The notion of sacrifice applied to Jesus' death on the Cross implied very often the conviction that the more Jesus had suffered the more redemptive his passion was. Seventy-five percent of the vocabulary of love in John's Gospel is to be found in chapters 13-17, where Jesus takes special care of his own and gives his disciples instructions as to the meaning and purpose of his passion.
