The Physical, emotional, spiritual torture Jesus underwent speaks more of the hatred and cruelty of humanity. Emotionally he felt the betrayal and forsaken of his own disciple, and he received blasphemous false accusations from the world. He was denied, abandoned, mocked , was arrested and bound. He was rejected by his own hometown and was asked deceitful questions. he was ridiculed by his own family members., he was blindfolded, beaten, struck with blows ,was arrested, wounded, bruised unaccompanied by his accusers, he was falsely charged, he was chastised, endured stripes, oppressed, led to the slaughter, cut off from the land of the living, he was abused by the roman soldiers, he was scourged, put on a crown of thorns on his head, a reed in His right hand, struck Him on the head with the reed, The soldiers striped him and divided His garments, nailed on the cross, he bore his own cross and was crucified. The chief priests with the scribes mocked and sneered at him. He took all the sins of the world upon Himself to end mans separation from God and to destroy eternal death, to be our high priest, to be our example, to be our perfect Advocate, to motivate us for striving for love,holy,blameless,perfect and righteousness, To rescue us from final judgment. By his suffering he revealed the The consequence of sin, the greatness of God's love, his own love, to give hoe for dead through resurrection.
