Wednesday of Holy Week. Jesus was bullied.
"Punching, shoving, and other acts that hurt people physically.
Spreading bad rumors about people.Teasing people in a mean way.
Getting certain people to "gang up" on others."
I found this to be a description of the way Jesus was treated during Holy Week.
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." (Punching, shoving, and other acts that hurt people physically. Teasing people in a mean way)
Luke 23:1 Then the whole assembly rose and led him off to Pilate. And they began to accuse him, saying, "We have found this man subverting our nation. He opposes payment of taxes to Caesar and claims to be Christ, a king." (Spreading bad rumors about people. Getting certain people to "gang up" on others)
What does it say to us that our Lord and Savior was bullied?
