4. This office the Lord Jesus did most willingly undertake; (Ps. 40:7–8, Heb. 10:5–10, John 10:18, Phil. 2:8) which that He might discharge, He was made under the law, (Ga. 4:4) and did perfectly fulfill it; (Matt. 3:15, Matt. 5:17) endured most grievous torments immediately in His soul, (Matt. 26:37–38, Luke 22:44, Matt. 27:46) and most painful sufferings in His body; (Matt. 26,27) was crucified, and died, (Phil. 2:8) was buried, and remained under the power of death, yet saw no corruption. (Acts 2:23–24,27, Act 13:37, Rom. 6:9) On the third day He arose from the dead, (1 Cor. 15:3–5) with the same body in which He suffered, (John 20:25,27) with which also He ascended into heaven, and there sitteth at the right hand of His Father, (Mark16:19) making intercession, (Rom. 8:34, Heb. 9:24, Heb. 7:25) and shall return, to judge men and angels, at the end of the world. (Rom. 14:9–10, Acts 1:11, Acts 10:42, Matt. 13:40–42, Jude 6, 2 Pet. 2:4)
