The Crown of Thorns
Updated: Dec 13, 2021
Crowns are ornamental headdresses that sit at the top of the head. Crowns have two distinctive styles, whereas a circular crown is a 360 geometric shape secured with hairpins, and a partial crown is a tiara secured with two attached combs. They are designed with various ornamental techniques, details, and elements, such as gold, silver, gemstones, rhinestones, flowers, the foliage of trees, and shrubs, to name a few. We can see different variations of crowns throughout history, royalty, and in modern-day.
Historically, crowns have been worn for various reasons. For instance, they are worn to identify cultural and religious hierarchy. A diadem is the type of crown worn in a monarchy to represent royalty, authority, and dignity. In modern-day uses, crowns are worn for ceremonies, engagements, and entertainment events. Either way, crowns are symbolic identities that illustrate a social ranking above commoners. However, there is one crown that outranks and outshines them all – the Crown of thorns.
The Crown of thorns is more powerful than any crown one can wear as it is symbolic of the suffering and sacrifice Jesus Christ endured to deliver us from sin and death. Although He suffered, there was a glorious and honorable crown for His sacrifice. (Hebrews 2:9) Even more so, the Crown of thorns is a symbol of eternal love. For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. (John 3:16)
For those who believe, wear your crown, royally, and tell the story of your identity in Jesus Christ, so you can lead the lost to the King-of-king, Lord-of-lords, and eternal life. - Amen
