The Pain of Jesus

Anonymous, York Corpus Christi Plays -- Drama as Literature (EL 250)

2 SOLDIER: This warlock's wits are warped as wood; This doleful death dismays him not!

The soldiers are so confused by Jesus' willingness to die. At the beginning they say Jesus is dying for his sins but later on when Jesus first speaks he says he is dying to save mankind from sin.

The contrast is especially notable, when the soldiers are griping about their ordinary aches and pains.
