The Guards Mock Jesus Luke 22:63-65.
The men who were guarding Jesus began mocking and beating him. They blindfolded him and demanded, “Prophesy! Who hit you?” And they said many other insulting things to him.
It would seem the archaic practise of throwing insults is still alive some two thousand & something years later (which should be no surprise).
Insulting, provoking & killing as a means to an end is the often preferred model for apparently civilised societies today, east or west & anything in between.
Large scale or small….There is a lot to be said for free speech & rights but something greater is required for this life, as Jesus taught. Matthew 8:5 -13.
I would love to know what this tiny individual thinks of rights & cowardice too, in our allegedly civilised societies.
Oh baby baby it's a wild world
