Jesus Scourged, Mocked, and Crowned with Thorns
“And they stripped him, and put on him a scarlet robe. And they platted a crown of thorns and put it upon his head, and a reed in his right hand; and they kneeled down before him, and mocked him, saying, Hail, King of the Jews! And they spat upon him, and took the reed and smote him on the head.” Matthew 27:28-30 ASV
