But I am a worm and not a man, scorned by men and despised by the people.  All who see me mock me; they sneer and shake their heads: “He trusts in the LORD, let the LORD deliver him; let the LORD rescue him, since He delights in him.” —Psalm 22:6-8

Two rebels were crucified with him, one on his right and one on his left. Those who passed by hurled insults at him, shaking their heads and saying, “You who are going to destroy the temple and build it in three days, save yourself! Come down from the cross, if you are the Son of God!”  In the same way the chief priests, the teachers of the law and the elders mocked him. “He saved others,” they said, “but he can’t save himself! He’s the king of Israel! Let him come down now from the cross, and we will believe in him.  He trusts in God. Let God rescue him now if he wants him, for he said, ‘I am the Son of God.’ ” In the same way the rebels who were crucified with him also heaped insults on him. —Matthew 27:38-44 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mUxI-y

       Jesus was:

Scorned by men

Despised by people



Sneered at

Heads shaken at



Familiar with pain

Held in low esteem

Pierced for our transgressions

Crushed for our iniquities

Punished for our peace

Wounded that we could be healed



Silent as a lamb to slaughter


Assigned a grave with the wicked

Assigned with the rich in His death

Not violent

Not deceitful


Going to prosper

Going to see the light of life

Going to be satisfied

Going to justify many

Going to divide a portion with the great

Going to divide the spoils with the strong

Going to pour out His life unto death

Numbered with the transgressors

Bearing the sins of many

Making intercession for the transgressors (Isaiah chapter 53)

Dear Father, I am astounded, overwhelmed, utterly amazed what Jesus went through for me.  Please help me to live a life that is pleasing to You in the power of Your Holy Spirit and in the authority of Jesus.  So be it!
