STATION VII. MOCKED BY ROME



The entire purpose of the crucifixion is public humiliation. Rome used it to warn citizens by making a display of the torture. Even after the brutality of flogging, the soldiers take time to mock Jesus. He called himself “king”, so they dress him up like one. Naked and bleeding, he‘s wrapped in a purple robe. Thorned vines are twisted into a crown that scrape and pierce his brow. The soldiers salute and laugh at him, before they yank the robe off his raw and torn flesh.


Read Mark 15:16-19
