Pontius Pilate worked for the Roman Government himself. Pilate, yes, did give into the crowd, because that was the choice the crowd made. Pilate got
his orders from King Herod, who also was the Roman Government.
After Jesus was condemned to death, he was immediately stripped down to just a simple garment. The guards and crowd mocked him with "Jesus, King of
the Jews!" After they did this, or while, either one, they gave him a crown of thorns, to mock him being the King. The cross was given to him, the
heaviest type, and he was set off with guards in front, aside, and behind him. A huge crowd of mockers, followers, people that loved him, people that
hated him, all of them, followed him in a huge group. On the way there, Jesus stumbled because he was tiring, he stumbled twice. On his way there, one
of the people in the crowd, a young man named Simon, was forced by the Roman guards to help Jesus carry the cross. He took up the back of the Cross,
as it was dragging in the dirt.
Next he came upon Mary Magdelene, who, because she was a close follower of him, gave him a cloth to wipe his face of the sweat and blood that was
coming out. When he gave the cloth back to her, the cloth, instead of sweat and blood, had HIS face on it - the face of Jesus Christ. The guards
forced him to continue, and he stumbled again. He was helped up, by the guards and Simon. Jesus saw his mother Mary, weeping hysterically in the
crowd, following Jesus. Jesus stopped, the guards allowed, suprisingly, and they talked. According to the Bible, Jesus told her not to worry, about
how he needed to do this, and how Jesus would bring Salvation to all whom believed. Jesus was again, led away, this time they arrived upon the place
they called the Skull, or Golgotha in Aramaic. Jesus was placed on the cross, stripped down, and was nailed. To this day, people around the world get
the phenomena, we call Stigmata, the signs of the Crucifixion upon one's body (the hands, feet, and side) Jesus was placed upon the cross, nailed in
those places. Jesus prayed to his Father, God, and asked why he had to do this, said a final prayer. He was then stabbed with a spear from one of the
guards, to ease the pain and put him out of misery. Jesus prayed, and then died upon the cross.
That is the Stations of the Cross in a nutshell. I could give you names, what happened afterwards, etc, juss U2U me
Stigmata is really, really scary. A number of holy people have had it, including St. Francis of Assisi, the animal lover, suffered from Stigmata. More
recently, St. Padre Pio, born in the early 1900's, who died in the 80's, suffered from it, and performed many documented miracles, including the
healing of boy, who should have died, because most of the cells in his brain were dead. According to the account, Pio came in through prayer by
pastors, families, friends, a huge gathering, and the boy lived, and is still alive to this day. These are some of the more known accounts of
Stigmata, definately not a disease, but a blessing, yes, a bloody one, but a Holy Blessing from the Heavens.
