Twisting a thorn-crown...

This was my take away yesterday.

I could not but wonder about the person who actually twisted the crown of thorns for Jesus. I tried to twist tiny soft thorns and I pulled blood! And it stung!

They placed the twisted crown (excuse the pun) on his head and then took the reed that they placed in his hand beforehand and beat the head of Jesus: securing this twist - twisting a crown, twisting truth, twisting thorns, twisting reality. It must have burned on many levels too. Gosh, the head of Christ must have felt like... fire, and Him saying no to wine that could dull the pain... even more astonishing to me.
