N.T. Wright on Jesus in a Purple Robe

CrossDraped.softWhen the soldiers dress Jesus up in a purple robe, they do so in order to mock him, but John tells us of it in order to declare that Jesus is indeed the one in purple, the one before whom the nations will bow.”  –N.T. Wright, How God Became King

How ironic!

We’re reminded of Paul in 1 Corinthians 2:8: “None of the rulers of this age knew this wisdom, for if they had known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.” (HCSB)
