“Behold the Man” (John 19:5) as He stands before an angry crowd calling for His death by crucifixion, His back plowed by the savage whip of a Roman soldier. On His head is a crown of thorns. His face is bruised, His visage marred, yet He stands quietly, dignified. This is Jesus; His name means, “He shall save His people from their sins” (Matthew 1:21). What has He done to deserve this treatment? His closest follower who referred to himself as one whom Jesus loved said, “In Him is no sin” (1 John 3:5). Pilate, the judge who was trying Him, said, “I find no fault in Him” (John 19:4,6). Paul, once a proud intellectual who persecuted followers of Jesus, said, He “knew no sin” (2 Corinthians 5:21). The accusing mob cannot find anyone to convict Him of wrongdoing.
Listen to His own words: “So must the Son of Man [Jesus] be lifted up: that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:14‑15).
His crucifixion was no accident. He came to be the Saviour of sinners like you and me.
