Station #7 – Whipped and Mocked

Read

But he (Pilate) had Jesus flogged, and handed him over to be crucified. (Matthew 27:26)

Click here to listen to the sound of the whip.

Then the governor’s soldiers took Jesus into the Praetorium and gathered the whole company of soldiers around him. They stripped him and put a scarlet robe on him, and then twisted together a crown of thorns and set it on his head. They put a staff in his right hand. Then they knelt in front of him and mocked him. “Hail, king of the Jews!” they said. They spit on him, and took the staff and struck him on the head again and again. After they had mocked him, they took off the robe and put his own clothes on him. (Matthew 27:27-31a)

Action

Take the red felt marker and strike the loose part of the clothing hanging from the cross to make a red mark.

Reflect

Some deaths are quick.

Some deaths are noble.

This death was neither.

It’s one thing to kill a man.

It’s another to shame and humiliate him.

Think for a second…

That the King of heaven has spit on his face.

O the divine disgrace of our Saviour.

 

Some deaths are quick.

Think for a second that the king of heaven has spit on his face.

This… the divine disgrace of our Saviour.
