Jesus Christ Crown Of Thorns


Jesus Christ Crown Of Thorns

Book of John 19:1-3: "Then Pilate took Jesus and had him scourged. And the soldiers wove a crown out of thorns and placed it on his head, and clothed him in a purple cloak, and they came to him and said, 'Hail, King of the Jews!' And they struck him repeatedly."(Villa Delarosa, Station II)

The crown of thorns, one of the instruments of the Passion, was woven of thorn branches and placed on Jesus Christ before his crucifixion. It is mentioned in the Canonical gospels of Matthew (27:29), Mark (15:17), and John(19:2, 5) and is often alluded to by the early Church Fathers, such as Clement of Alexandria, Origen, and others.

According to tradition the crown of thorns placed on Jesus' head was made of branches either of the red date tree (jujube) or of cypress. Our Crown of Thorns is made of jujube and will last for many years. It is handmade and can serve as a treasured memento of a trip to Jerusalem or as a meaningful and unique detail in church productions commemorating the Passion.

"Personally – why did we decide that this article should be in our store? Apart from its profound spiritual significance, the Crown of Thorns as it is made for us is a beautiful artistic object that can add a cultural dimension to any home or church."
