Mark 15:17 “They put a purple robe on him, then twisted together a crown of thorns and set it on him.”

The Scene: The crown of thorns* came from a scrubby bush called burnet, which grew in the region Jesus taught (Matthew Henry Commentary). ” He wore the crown of thorns, which we deserved, that we might wear  the crown of glory which He merited.” (Zondervan Edition 1960)

  • Three strands make up the crown of thorns–three being the number for the Trinity, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. When Jesus suffered and was crucified, not only Jesus suffered, but Father God suffered as well.”The Son of God loves us so much that He was willing to wear the crown of thorns, that we might wear the crown of life,” said the Holy Spirit.

James 12:2 “Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God had promised to those who love him.”
