3-22-2015 “HIS CROWN OF THORNS : OUR CURSE!” Mark 15:16-20


In today’s message Bro. Leo teaches the significance of the Crown of Thorns that was placed on Jesus’ head.   The thorns represent the curse that God put on all creation after the first sin was committed by Adam and Eve in the garden of Eden (Gen. 3).   Jesus’ sacrifice on the Cross ended the curse by beginning the renewing of first our souls then our physical bodies and then all of creation.  In order to fully appreciate the sacrifice that Jesus offered for us we have to understand the curse and how Jesus’ sacrifice affected the curse.

We also added a Bible study on the Crown of Thorns for more understanding.
