Broken and bleeding and in a state of shock, Jesus is made to carry the large wooden beam from which he will hang at the execution site. Two other men are sentenced to crucifixion that day so the three are driven like cattle stumbling through the busiest streets of Jerusalem and out onto the hillside. Jesus so weak from his especially brutal flogging struggles to stay on his feet. Eventually the impatient Roman soldiers force an unfortunate onlooker named Simon to carry the beam as they finish the hike to Golgotha, the Place of Skulls.
Read Mark 15:20-22
