The atoning sacrifice of the Lord Jesus Christ...is the most transcendent event that ever has or ever will occur from Creation's dawn through all the ages of a never-ending eternity. Through it are brought to pass the immortality and eternal life of man. Through it, all men are saved from death, hell, the devil, and endless torment.
Above it all, he was scourged, scourged with forty stripes save one, scourged with a multithonged whip into whose leather strands sharp bones and cutting metals were woven.
Many died from scourging alone.
But he rose from the sufferings of the scourge that he might die an ignominious death upon the cruel cross of Calvary.
The Son of Man hath descended below them all. D&C 122:8 He ascended up on high, as also he descended below all things, in that he comprehended all things, that he might be in all and through all things, the light of truth. D&C 88:6
