Ecce Homo (“This is the man”) - oil on canvas, ca. 1606. Caravaggio (Michelangelo Merisi)
Palazzo Rosso, Genoa

He was despised and rejected by men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief; and as one from whom men hide their faces he was despised, and we esteemed Him not. Surely He has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows; yet we esteemed Him stricken, struck down by God and afflicted. But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; upon Him was the chastisement that made us whole, and with His stripes we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way, and the Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all. He was oppressed, and He was afflicted. Yet He opened not His mouth; like a lamb that is led to the slaughter, and like a sheep that before its bearers is silent, so He opened not His mouth. By oppression and judgment He was taken away; and as for His generation, who considered that He was cut off out of the land of the living, stricken for the transgression of my people? And they made His grave with the wicked and with a rich man in His death, although He had done no violence, and there was no deceit in His mouth.… [H]e poured out his soul to death, and was numbered with the transgressors; yet He bore the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors. — Isaiah 53:3-12b {RSV-CE2]
