Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on John 19:1-3.


John 19:2

_ _ the soldiers platted a crown of thorns, and put it on his head — in mockery of a regal crown.

_ _ and they put on him a purple robe — in mockery of the imperial purple; first “stripping him” (Matthew 27:28) of His own outer garment. The robe may have been the “gorgeous” one in which Herod arrayed and sent Him back to Pilate (Luke 23:11). “And they put a reed into His right hand” (Matthew 27:29) — in mockery of the regal scepter. “And they bowed the knee before Him” (Matthew 27:29).
