Life of Jesus
Mocked by the Soldiers
Mat 27:27-31; Mk 15:16-20
27 Then the soldiers of the governor took Jesus into the Praetorium and gathered
the whole garrison around Him.
28 And they stripped Him and put a scarlet robe on Him.
29 When they had twisted a crown of thorns, they put it on His head, and a reed
in His right hand. And they bowed the knee before Him and mocked Him, saying,
"Hail, King of the Jews!"
30 Then they spat on Him, and took the reed and struck Him on the head.
31 And when they had mocked Him, they took the robe off Him, put His own clothes
on Him, and led Him away to be crucified .
16 Then the soldiers led Him away into the hall called Praetorium, and they
called together the whole garrison.
- And they clothed Him with purple; and they twisted a crown of thorns, put it
on His head,
- and began to salute Him, "Hail, King of the Jews!"
- Then they struck Him on the head with a reed and spat on Him; and bowing the
knee, they worshiped Him.
- And when they had mocked Him, they took the purple off Him, put His own
clothes on Him, and led Him out to crucify Him.
