Mark 15:17 – They put a purple robe on him, then twisted together a crown of thorns and set it on him.
1 John 2:17 – The world passes away but, whoever does the will of God lives forever.
1 Corinthians 6:11 – You are washed in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Acts 13:39 – Through Christ everyone who believes is set free from every sin.
The Bible says that they put a purple robe on Christ and gave him a crown of thorns. Purple is a royal color that symbolized the kingdom of the whole world, which Christ was about to receive by the shedding of His blood. To love God is to gain Him, and His Kingdom, forever. Followers of Christ are washed from their sins by the blood of Christ. It is through Christ alone that those who believe in Him are set forever free from the stain of sin.
