Good Friday

It is 8:50

The soldiers take Jesus from Pilate and bring him to their headquarters.

At this moment, Jesus is whipped and beaten, nearly to death. They mock him as they beat him, putting on his head a crown of thorns, and forcing him to hold a mock scepter.

“Hail King of the Jews!” they yell. He is bloodied, and torn apart. The whips pull out flesh, and expose bone, leaving huge gashes on his back, and on all his body.

By these stripes, you are healed.
