Behold The Man  

John's Gospel Ch19 Vs5
Pilate the Roman governor knew Jesus was innocent yet because of the cry 'Crucify him, crucify him' from the religious leaders he said 'Take him and crucify him: for I find no fault in him'. The fact that the Son of God became truly human yet divine is amazing. He was born without the taint of sin, lived a spotless life, and died an atoning death at Calvary.
His resurrection after three days is proof that the work of salvation for sinful people was finished;  John Ch19 Vs30.

As we behold and consider the man Christ Jesus let us look at some scriptures that mention his head.

His homeless head
In Luke Ch9 Vs58 Jesus tells us 'Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head.'
What we see is that in his public ministry he had no permanent home on Earth and the examples from the animal kingdom is drawn. What he was teaching his disciples was 'don't expect it to be easy to follow me or to get earthly gain by doing so'.
The Hymn writer expresses it well when he wrote:
Lamb of God when we behold thee
Lonely in the manger laid
Wandering as a homeless stranger
In the world thy hand has made
James G Deck

His anointed head
Mark Ch14 Vs3
The Lord Jesus had homes he loved to visit. Bethany was special because of the people who lived there. Mark says this time it was the house of Simon the leper that an un-named woman (we believe it to be Mary) took an alabaster box of ointment of spikenard which was very precious and poured it on his head (John Ch12 Vs3 Then took Mary a pound of ointment of spikenard, very costly, and anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped his feet with her hair: and the house was filled with the odour of the ointment.)
She considered nothing to precious for Jesus. What an example of love and devotion in her act of worship. The Lord commended her and rebuked her critics.

His struck head
Matthew Ch27 Vs30
His tormentors spat upon him, took a reed and smote him on the head. We view with reverence and wonder the mockery, the beatings, the mock trial and the submissiveness of Jesus to the father's will which would mean being crowned with a crown of thorns.  John Ch19 Vs2 says it would mean dying on the cross suffering for the sin of men in the three hours of darkness as his blood was shed. The hymn writer wrote, 'there was one who was willing to die in my stead that a soul so unworthy might live'. F.A. Breck
God's love and grace to you and me was wonderfully demonstrated in the cross-work of our Lord Jesus Christ. How thankful we should be that the Lord Jesus became man in order to be our Lord and saviour. Have you made him yours?  John Ch1 Vs12, Hebrews C10 Vs12
His crowned to head
Hebrews Ch2 Vs9 tells us he was crowned with glory and honour and Peter declared in Acts Ch2 Vs 36 that God hath made that same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ. He has triumphed over sin, death and the grave; the victory is his. Revelation Ch5 Vs12 Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing. He will never bow again in mockery but Revelation Ch19 Vs12 reads and on his head were many crowns.
We close our mediation with a chorus of a Hymn
Worthy, O Lamb of God art Thou
That every knee to thee should bow
Josiah Conder
