A GATHERING OF GRACE - SA(T)B 49 NARRATION: In Gethsemane, a large crowd armed with swords and clubs confronted Jesus. Soldiers arrested Jesus and took Him away to face the Roman authorities. Jesus was violently beaten and given over to be crucified. Jesus was taken into the Praetorium, and a whole company of soldiers gathered around Him. They struck Him and adorned Him with a scarlet robe. They twisted together a crown of thorns and set it upon His head. They put a staff in His right hand and knelt in front of Him crying, "HAIL THE KING OF THE JEWS!" They spit upon Him and struck Him on the head repeatedly. Then, they led Him away to be crucified. When they had come to the place called Golgotha, He was fastened to a cross and raised high into the darkening Judean sky. In that moment, the words of Isaiah were made complete: "He was pierced for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon Him and by His wounds we are healed." (Matthew 27:29-33; Isaiah 53:5 KJV) For Preview Only
