Jesus turned to carry His crossbeam to Golgotha. He was just collateral damage in the eyes of Pilate and the Jewish leaders, a pawn to be played. In truth, His journey to the cross was the fulfillment of His kingly duty; it was a victory won. Each suffering step through Jerusalem’s streets was graced with divine majesty. Every drop of sweat and blood was like a royal jewel strewn in the dust. It was a procession so majestic that the very angels of heaven paused in holy stillness to watch it.
His kingdom was not of this world.
