Jesus has just been sentenced to death he is taken to a place to wait for the execution of the sentence. the guards crown him with thrones mock him and spit upon him. He has only told the truth. May I not fear witnessing to the truth.
Before Hail Mary
- Jesus is mocked by a unit of solders
- Do I always build up others
- Jesus is spit upon
- He is blind folded and slapped
- through Him all things came to be
- He became vulnerable out of love for us
- Will we become vulnerable out of love for him
- He is crowned with a crown of thornes
- where the Master is the servent will be
- He loves us even when we are hurting Him
Then the soldiers of the governor took Jesus inside the praetorium and gathered the whole cohort around him. They stripped off his clothes and threw a scarlet military cloak about him. Weaving a crown out of thorns, they placed it on his head, and a reed in his right hand. And kneeling before him, they mocked him, saying, "Hail, King of the Jews!" They spat upon him and took the reed and kept striking him on the head. And when they had mocked him, they stripped him of the cloak, dressed him in his own clothes, and led him off to crucify him.
The soldiers led him away inside the palace, that is, the praetorium, and assembled the whole cohort. They clothed him in purple and, weaving a crown of thorns, placed it on him. They began to salute him with, "Hail, King of the Jews! and kept striking his head with a reed and spitting upon him. They knelt before him in homage. And when they had mocked him, they stripped him of the purple cloak, dressed him in his own clothes, and led him out to crucify him.
And the soldiers wove a crown out of thorns and placed it on his head, and clothed him in a purple cloak, and they came to him and said, "Hail, King of the Jews!" And they struck him repeatedly. Once more Pilate went out and said to them, "Look, I am bringing him out to you, so that you may know that I find no guilt in him." So Jesus came out, wearing the crown of thorns and the purple cloak. And he said to them, "Behold, the man!"
