"thorns it seems always accompany visits to glory.
no one who has walked in Christ's presence
will ever be allowed to strut".
"............ so his appearance was marred more than any man
and his form more than the sons of man"
Barabbas moves toward freedom
Jesus moves toward Golgotha
crowned with thorns
draped in a captain's robe
blood dripping into his eyes
and running down his battered face
thorns pounded deeper into flesh
who is this man Jesus
