On His Back

I gave My back to those who strike Me, And My cheeks to those who pluck out the beard; I did not cover My face from humiliation and spitting. Isaiah 50:6

We often heard the expression “ Take the shirt off his back”, meaning someone was willing to give anything they had to help others. Well Jesus took the wages of our sins on his back and gave us eternal life. See before Christ was crucified on a Cross, the Roman soldiers wanted to torture him by a practice called “flogging”. They used devices with whips, chains, and spikes that literally tore the flesh from the bone every time they struck him. His sentence was 40 flogs before being crucified to a cross.

Jesus knew the torture he was going to face, but willing gave his back, to take the penalty for our sins. The Romans beat him so severely that he could barely stand or walk. But their torture only began there, when they forced him to carry his own cross, that he would be crucifed to death on. He carried it up a large hill called Golgotha, for about a mile.

Eventually after carrying that cross on his back for a mile, he was crucified with spikes and left to die. While he hung there, bystanders mocked and spit on him. But as the prophecy says, he didn’t cover his face with shame. This is a part of Christianity most people don’t like to talk about. But in order for us to understand the seriousness of our sin, we need to understand the debt that was paid for it.

Jesus is righteous, and he paid the price for our sins not his. When you accept Christ as your Lord and Savior, your old self dies on the cross and your new self is resurrected with Christ. Understand the wages of your sins is death and Yeshua (Jesus) took that penalty for you, he is the salvation and Lamb of God. Because God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son in Jesus Name Amen
