Scourging

Then Pilate therefore took Jesus, and scourged him. John 19:1

Scourging is a very cruel form of torture. The victim’s hands are tied to an upright post with the body bent forward and bared to the wrist. A whip, made of leather, with pieces of metal and sharp bits of bone woven into it, was administered several times. Every lash tore the flesh from the bones. Only those with a strong physical frame were able to survive. It is said of Jesus, that His back was like a plowed field (Psalm 129:3). Why would He endure this? Because, the Son of God God loved me and gave His life for me.” (Galatians 2:20)

I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God,who loved me and gave himself for me. – Galatians 2:20

Thanks and blessings to Tim who gave me this word tonight. 3/4/2016
