We will encounter the Crucifixion four times this year in our readings. I would like to suggest each time we read about this event in the gospels that we step back and note what caught our attention as this event unfolded. For me it was what took place in the Praetorium. All the soldiers were doing was to bait Jesus to respond and strikeout, yet He did not do it! Peter wrote: “When they hurled their insults at him, he did not retaliate; when he suffered, he made no threats. Instead, he entrusted himself a to him who judges justly.” How Jesus responded to unjust suffering was to become a model for us when we face unjust suffering! I look to hearing from you.
