John 10:17-18 AMPC
For this [reason] the Father loves Me, because I lay down My [own] life–to take it back again.
No one takes it away from Me. On the contrary, I lay it down voluntarily. [I put it from Myself.] I am authorized and have power to lay it down (to resign it) and I am authorized and have power to take it back again. These are the instructions (orders) which I have received [as My charge] from My Father.
