Have you ever seen a priceless crown in a picture or in a museum? It looks beautiful, made of gold and inlaid with precious jewels that represent the glory, power, and richness of the head that bears it. Yet, our Lord and faithful Savior wore a crown of thorns, which stuck deep into His head so that His blood flowed. His crown is, by far, the best of all crowns on heaven and on earth.Jesus was poor and despised. The scarlet robe was dyed with His blood. The Roman soldiers mocked Him with a rod of cane, which they put into His hand. They poured all their hatred upon Him, spat in His face, struck Him on the head, and bowed their knees before Him as if He were a king. How frightfully those heathen soldiers shall be possessed with fear and terror on the day of judgment, when they see that this tortured Son of Man is their mighty Judge, the King of Kings!
