Interesting fact: The Lord Jesus was “led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil” (Matthew 4:1), “led . . . unto the brow of the hill . . . that they might cast him down headlong” (Luke 4:29), “led . . . away to Caiaphas” (Matthew 26:57), “led . . . away . . . to Pontius Pilate” (Matthew 27:2), and “led . . . away” to be crucified (Matthew 27:31). Through it all, “He was led as a sheep to the slaughter” (Acts 8:32). Because of this, He will one day lead His own “unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes” (Revelation 7:17).
