Jesus mocked, Missillac by TheRevSteve
Jesus mocked, Missillac, a photo by TheRevSteve on Flickr.

From the New Testament reading at morning prayer:

Then the soldiers led him into the courtyard of the palace (that is, the governor’s headquarters); and they called together the whole cohort. And they clothed him in a purple cloak; and after twisting some thorns into a crown, they put it on him. And they began saluting him, ‘Hail, King of the Jews!’
(Mark’s Gospel, Chapter 15, verses 16-18, NRSV)

These days it wouldn’t be soldiers, it would be tabloid journalists.
