Scourging of Jesus
“So when Pilate saw that he prevailed nothing, but rather that a tumult was arising, he took water, and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, I am innocent of the blood of this righteous man; see ye to it. And all the people answered and said, His blood be on us, and on our children. Then released he unto them Barabbas; but Jesus he scourged and delivered to be crucified.” Matthew 27:24-26 ASV
Three men scourge Jesus who is tied to a column. Pontius Pilate sits at left. Others look on from the shadows.
