Isaiah 53:4

Surely he has borne our griefs
and carried our sorrows;
yet we esteemed him stricken,
smitten by God, and afflicted.

(ESV)

Jesus Christ came to the World. We know what He did here for us on the cross, but don't forget that He also was HERE.  He was born.  He grew up.  He lived.  Then He died.  He was HERE.  He fulfilled His name, Immanuel (God with us).  He bore our griefs and carried our sorrows in more ways than just on the cross.  This is why the book of Hebrews calls Him a "compassionate High Priest," because He has been here, yet without sin.
