A Camelot for Sufferers of Chronic Pain

The Passion of the Christ is Our Light in Suffering Psalm 22

Our Offering

“The Passion” is the Christian theological term used for the events and suffering – physical, spiritual, and mental – of Jesus in the hours before and including his trial and execution by crucifixion.    The Crucifixion of Jesus lies deep in the heart of Christian beliefs.

What did Jesus feel as He endured injustice, hatred and betrayal?

In the Bible there is the Book of Psalms, which primarily was written by King David. In Psalm 22 we hear the agony in the words of a righteous man who is suffering torments unto death. It feels like King David may have put these chilling words onto the lips of Christ.

Psalm 22:11-20

11 Do not be far from me,
for trouble is near
and there is no one to help.

12 Many bulls surround me;
strong bulls of Bashan encircle me.

13 Roaring lions tearing their prey
open their mouths wide against me.

14 I am poured out like water,
and all my bones are out of joint.
My heart has turned to wax;
it has melted away within me.

15 My strength is dried up like a potsherd,
and my tongue sticks to the roof of my mouth;
you lay me in the dust of death.

16 Dogs have surrounded me;
a band of evil men has encircled me,
they have pierced my hands and my feet.

17 I can count all my bones;
people stare and gloat over me.

18 They divide my garments among them
and cast lots for my clothing.

19 But you, O Lord, be not far off;
O my Strength, come quickly to help me.

20 Deliver my life from the sword

Read the full Passage of Psalm 22

Jesus accepted and endured the greatest of sufferings for us.    He was stripped of everything, but that only made Him greater. If you are not a Christian,  His suffering and death still have great lessons in surviving the trials we might face.

The poignant song in the video is  ‘Offering’ by Third Day.

We remember Thy most sorrowful Passion and Death.     In Camelot,  King Arthur & his Kingdom,  light  a candle for Thee dear Lord.

With Gratitude and Love,
