Scourged at the Pillar...March 26

"Flogging could have killed Jesus. The usual procedure was to bare the upper half of the victim's body and tie his hands to a pillar before whipping him with a three-pronged whip. The number of lashes was determined by the severity of the crime; up to 40 were permitted under Jewish law (Deuteronomy 25:3). "

Those pictures are painful. Bet that is what He thinks about our sins.

Mary Lou - I bet you are right. We leave Him when we are in sin and yet He wants, waits and won't give up on us.
