When I look at this chapter and I think of what Jesus said in chapter 18:11, "The cup which my Father has given me shall I not drink it?" I wonder when that cup was given.  Notice we are chosen in Christ before the foundation of the world.  Ephesians 1:4
Now in our passages the first act by the Roman soldiers twisted together a crown of thorns and put it on his head.  Where is the first times thorns are mentioned? When Adam brought the curse by eating of the forbidden tree in the garden in Genesis 3:15.  Another verse tells us that Jesus was made a curse for us also.
An interesting statement was when Pilate said , "Behold the Man." There was no man like Him who knew no sin. 2 Corinthians 5:21  Yet He took my sin on the cross.  Then Jesus made a statement, "He made Himself the Son of God." Really this is what He was.
Now what do I say about Jesus?  What do you say about Him? I hope your answer is the same as mine.
