Scourging of Jesus

Jesus was arrested and tried by the Jewish Sanhedrin and then sentenced by Pontius Pilate. The sentence passed led to the Scourging of Jesus and the death of Jesus on the cross. The scourging and crucifixion of Jesus is described in the four gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. After being scourged, Jesus was mocked by Roman soldiers as the "King of the Jews" who crowned him with thorns. Jesus then had to make his way to the place of his crucifixion badly shocked in in great pain from the scourging that had been inflicted.

The Scourging of Jesus - Roman Capital Punishment
The manner and process of crucifixion during the Roman times was that after the sentence had been pronounced a convicted man had to carry his cross to the place of execution, which was usually outside the city precincts. The practice of scourging appears to have formed a part of this, as with of other capital punishments among the Romans.

The Scourging of Jesus
This form of punishment would have been undertaken as the prescribed punishment by the Romans. The Romans used a whip for scourging which was called a flagrum. The flagrum consisted of small pieces of bone and metal attached to a number of leather strands. The skin of the back was ripped to the bone from scourging. A variation of the Roman scourge was to replace the pieces of metal with hooks which tore at the body of the victim. The execution method of Roman Crucifixion which included the double punishment of scourging was vicious. The scourging process was so severe that it could produce death from the physical shock caused by the scourging.
