"Think not that I came to send peace on the earth. I came not to send peace, but a sword..."
According to Cosby's classic stand-up routine, his father would always yell at him and his brother.
Something like: "Jesus Christ, it's raining, get in here. God Dammit, you get in here too.".
But then one day he was playing in the yard alone and his father called him: "God Dammit, quit making such a racket!" Bill just stood there looking around for his brother. "God Dammit didn't you hear me?" yelled his father to which Bill replied, "But dad, I'm Jesus Christ!"
Mike: Well Billy, I'm actually a Christian now... and a pastor at that!

He then was beat up and sentenced to death. Although he had the power to escape the situation, he knew that it was supposed to happen so that through his perfect life, he would be a sacrifice to those who would trust and follow him.
