"Maybe a pattern of blood he could call that the one Christ was wearing."

Christ’s Passion, as recounted in the gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, is the bodily and spiritual suffering Jesus undergoes during his trial and crucifixion. The pattern of blood refers to the injuries he receives during his flagellation and to the stigmata on his hands and feet. Quentin’s association of the blood stains on his clothes with these wounds figures his suicide as an act of atonement for humanity’s sins that has been necessitated by his father and which he must undergo with passive forbearance.
