And they clothed him with purple, and platted a crown of thorns, and put it about his head,…
The thorn chaplet was a triumphal crown. Christ had fought with sin from the day when he first stood foot to foot with it in the wilderness, up to the time when He entered Pilate's hall, and He had conquered it. As a witness that He had gained the victory, behold, sin's crown seized as a trophy! What was the crown of sin? Thorns. But now Christ has spoiled sin of its richest regalia and He wears it Himself. Glorious Champion, all hail!
(C. H. Spurgeon.)
