10. The soldiers strip Jesus for crucifixion – a reflection presented by @vahva for #easterjourneys

Then the eyes of both were opened, and they knew that they were naked. – Genesis 3:7

And he said, “Naked I came from my mother’s womb, and naked shall I return. The LORD gave, and the LORD has taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD.” – Job 1:21

“I was naked and you clothed me” – Matthew 25:36

but he left the linen cloth and ran away naked – Mark 14:52

The soldiers stripped Jesus.





They divided your garments
and cast lots for your clothes.
Stripped of all dignity,
you had nothing of your own.
By your despoilment, O Lord,
clothe us in your mercy
which is rich beyond words.
