Jesus is Scourged at the Pillar and Crowned with Thorns
We adore you, O Christ, and we bless you; by your holy cross, you have redeemed the world. Help us to walk in your steps. Amen.
- Reflect on a time you won a trophy.
- While a crown of thorns is heartbreaking, why is this a fitting crown for our savior?
The Sacred Story
Then Pilate took Jesus and flogged him. And the soldiers twisted together a crown of thorns and put it on his head and arrayed him in a purple robe. They came up to him, saying, “Hail, King of the Jews!” and struck him with their hands.

Once and For All
Lord Jesus, you are a king who is worthy of honor, praise, and obedience. Instead we give you thorns and a cross. May we come to see this day as your coronation and bend our knee at your cross. Amen.
