save yourself

And Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.” And they cast lots to divide his garments. And the people stood by, watching, but the rulers scoffed at him, saying, “He saved others; let him save himself, if he is the Christ of God, his Chosen One!” The soldiers also mocked him, coming up and offering him sour wine and saying, “If you are the King of the Jews, save yourself!” There was also an inscription over him, “This is the King of the Jews.” (Luke 23:34-38)

Jesus is mocked and taunted with shouts about saving himself - He saved others, let him save himself. Of course, He could have saved himself, instantly, but He chose not to. And the reason he chose not to is the very reason included in their mocking. "he saved others" - that's what he was doing at that very moment. He chose not to save himself in order to save us. At the climax of salvation, the saviour is being mocked about his saving capabilities.
