“He is Jesus Christ, the Son of God (1:1), and the reader knows that this Jesus asks less from his followers than he gives. When he “who gave his life as a ransom for many” (10:45) and by his sacrificial death brought redemption and the new covenant (14:22–25) calls, believers gladly respond with loving and grateful hearts and follow him.
