And they clothed him with purple, and platted a crown of thorns, and put it about his head, And began to salute him, Hail, King of the Jews! Mark 15:17-18
Jesus wore the Crown of Thorns, the crown that was meant for us! The crown that we deserve as sinners not Jesus, but he did it anyway because God loves us. You can’t refute the love of God when you know the crucifixion of Christ.
It’s important for us to remember and know what Jesus did for us, the price he paid. He didn’t just come and save the world, he suffered and paid the price for all our sins
And they smote him on the head with a reed, and did spit upon him, and bowing their knees worshipped him. Mark 15:19
The Roman soldiers with evil in their hearts, thought they were getting a good laugh at mocking an innocent man, but little did they know they were fulfilling Biblical prophecy. Imagine the surprise on their judgement day when they stand face to face with the Great I AM, the one they spit on and beat.
And when they had mocked him, they took off the purple from him, and put his own clothes on him, and led him out to crucify him. Mark 15:20
The Roman soldiers thought they were just about to murder another Jew, but they didn’t realize they were about to slain the Lamb of God, the event that will change the world forever. The event that will crush the head of Satan, break every chain upon us, and defeat death in Jesus Name Amen
