Jesus is the Son of God
When Pilate presented Jesus to the crowd, in Amtonio Ciscri’s painting above, he said “Ecce Homo” That is “Behold the man”!
But Jesus is more than a man, he is also God.
This Jesus was going to be made a curse for us as we are told in (Galatians 3:13 KJV) Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree:.
Notice even the type of crown Jesus is wearing. It is part of God’s curse on this world as we are told in (Genesis 3:17-18 KJV) And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life; Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field;.
Yes this God man standing before Pilate, was wearing a crown that symbolized what was going to happen to him, in order to redeem us from the curse.
Then Pilate therefore took Jesus, and scourged [him].
And the soldiers platted a crown of thorns, and put [it] on his head, and they put on him a purple robe,
And said, Hail, King of the Jews! and they smote him with their hands.
Pilate therefore went forth again, and saith unto them, Behold, I bring him forth to you, that ye may know that I find no fault in him.
Then came Jesus forth, wearing the crown of thorns, and the purple robe. And [Pilate] saith unto them, Behold the man!
When the chief priests therefore and officers saw him, they cried out, saying, Crucify [him], crucify [him]. Pilate saith unto them, Take ye him, and crucify [him]: for I find no fault in him.
The Jews answered him, We have a law, and by our law he ought to die, because he made himself the Son of God.
When Pilate therefore heard that saying, he was the more afraid;
And went again into the judgment hall, and saith unto Jesus, Whence art thou? But Jesus gave him no answer.
