    “Handed over” makes me think of the word “surrender” becuase Christ went willingly, did not resist arrest. In is dialogue with accusers he tried to speak truth to power. Herod washed his hands of him to protect his own name.

    Paradidómi (hand over, betray, deliver) occurs 120 times in the New Testament. The power to “hand over” and crucify God in the flesh is bestowed “from above” (John 19:11).
