Revisiting 'the Passion'

Background image source: Lostseed.com




He must suffer many things
and be rejected by this generation.
~Luke 17:25



Since we have no scheduled activities this Lenten season, 
I’ve decided to spend  time reading and reflecting 
on the  Passion of the Christ.
Let me present the following verses.





according to Jesus.

The soldiers used short whips made up of  wooden handle with leather thongs, 
each embedded with bits of glass or bones attached near the ends. 
I think he received more or less 39 lashes!
They took a bundle of branches covered with  thorns (1 to 6 inches long) 
and woven into the shape of a crown then pressed into His scalp. 
He was commanded to carry the rough wood (34 - 57 kilos, about 
the weight of a sack of rice) to a 650 yard journey (594.36 meters).
The nails (or spikes)  would have been made of heavy,  iron material, 7-9 inches long.
Some historians say that  they nailed him on the wrists, not the palms. 
(Definitely, a lot more painful : (
He can’t take the taste!, I guess.
All these sufferings made me think that our situations 
 might not be the worst, after all...
For God so love the world Holy Week

Awww... napapanahon po talaga ito. Maraming salamat for sharing :))

Huwag sana nating gunitain ang mga paghihirap ni Hesu Kristo para lamang tubusin tayong lahat sa ating mga kasalanan.

Blessed Maundy Thursday!
