He took the pain of the whip ripping into His flesh, digging deeper into it at each blow, tearing into His skin, blood running down His back onto the ground and He takes it.
While this is happening He hears them taunting Him, saying terrible things to Him and He takes it.
The thorns dig deep into His skin as they push the crown of thorns upon His head, blood running down His face and He takes it.
He feels the wood digging deep into His back as He drags the cross He will be nailed to, splinters coming off pushing into His back and He takes it.
He feels the pain shooting through His body as they drive the nails into His flesh and He takes it.
He takes it all, bares the pain, the suffering that words can not come close to describing but He takes it.
He took it so we may be saved.

Jesus will be our lawyer and God will be the judge. The devil will be the one prosecuting us. He will charge us with what we did and said, he hopes to have our soul at the end. One thing he forgot was that we have the best there is. He will tear down the devils’ accusations. It will not matter what the devil throws our way because Jesus came to defend us this day. The devil threw all he had at us, oh, he put up a fuss. After hearing all that the devil had to say. Jesus stood up and defended us this day. He took our hand and said all is forgiven because you see I had risen. That was the end of this trial you see because Jesus died on the cross for me.
