Pilate then took Jesus and scourged Him. And the soldiers twisted together a crown of thorns and put it on His head, and put a purple robe on Him; and they began to come up to Him and say, “Hail, King of the Jews!” and to give Him slaps in the face.
John 19:1-3 NASB
They kept beating His head with a reed (or staff made of a reed), and spitting on Him, and kneeling and bowing before Him.
Mark 15:19 NASB
and they knelt down before Him and mocked Him, saying, “Hail, King of the Jews!” They spat on Him, and took the reed and began to beat Him on the head.
Matthew 27:29b-30 NASB
Jesus, You said, “You would have no authority over Me, unless it had been given you from above;”. Those who scourged, mocked and beat you could only do so with the Father’s permission. You were scourged, mocked, beaten for me. How can I thank You Jesus for taking the punishment that I deserve?
How can I thank you Father for loving me so much that You gave Your only begotten Son to die and give eternal life to not only me but to whomever believes in Him? This beautiful imperishable gift of eternal life to whoever believes.
God, You did not send Your Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him. We who believe in Jesus are not judged. Those who do not believe have been judged already, because they have not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
God walk with me in my salvation that I will be a light to those who are in darkness. Open my mouth to share what Jesus did for me and the joy of knowing I am walking free without judgement because I am clothed in the righteousness of Jesus my Savior, my Lord, my God. Amen.
John 19:11 NASB/John 3:16-18 NASB
