For 10 April 2020, Good Friday, based on Matthew 27:27-31
Then the soldiers of the governor took Jesus into the governorâ€™s headquarters, and they gathered the whole cohort around him. They stripped him and put a scarlet robe on him, and after twisting some thorns into a crown, they put it on his head. They put a reed in his right hand and knelt before him and mocked him, saying, â€œHail, King of the Jews!â€ They spat on him, and took the reed and struck him on the head. After mocking him, they stripped him of the robe and put his own clothes on him. Then they led him away to crucify him.
