A13 The Crown of Thorns
Part of series Agape Series
The significance of the crown of thorns upon the head of Jesus carries a far deeper meaning than most imagine. When Adam sinned the earth produced thorns as a response to his sinfulness.
The Bible tells us clearly that when men sin the earth is defiled and the rebellion that is in man is stored up in the earth like pressure of a fault line until it bursts forth and causes destruction.
The principles in this chapter are vital to many of the stories in the Bible.
The earth is also defiled under its inhabitants, Because they have transgressed the laws, Changed the ordinance, Broken the everlasting covenant. Isa 24:5
Yet despite all this sinfulness affecting the earth Christ holds back as long as possible these effects and it is like wearing a crown of thorns as He groans and travails under the weight of it. Rom 8:22
