The Substitute

Older brother begging to save his younger brother’s life

English Translation

Bottom: But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. (Rom. 5:8)

Left: In late Han Dynasty, Zhao Li was taken hostage by bandits, and prepared to be cooked. His older brother Xiao heard about this and went to beg the bandits, saying that my brother is not as fatty as I am. Please release him and let me die in place of him. The head of the bandits saw that this brother is very righteous and was moved, therefore he released them both and moved to other places. Therefore, the whole village was spared from bandits.

Please go to church to hear the gospel and study the Bible
