“And the soldiers twisted together a crown of thorns and put it on his head and arrayed him in a purple robe.” John 19:2
Purple-the symbol of royalty. “King of the Jews,” they labeled Jesus on the cross. Known as “King of Kings” and “Lord of Lords” by his followers. Royal blood was spilled out for me! And you!
Here’s the cool part—the story doesn’t end there. The tomb is empty. Christ rose from the dead three days after he was crucified and pronounced dead. Jesus is seated at the right hand of the heavenly father. Once again, Jesus is clothed in majesty. Clothed in the robe of royalty and righteousness. Worthy is the lamb!
