What he said

After John 16

Facing arrest, trials,
facing false judgments
and sentencing of death,
facing beatings and
facing a circle of thorns
shoved on top his head,
facing the scourge,
facing the dragging
of wood through the streets,
facing the jeers and insults,
facing the betrayals,
facing the desertions,
facing the nails being driven
into his hands and feet,
facing abandonment and
the reality of being alone,
facing his father turning
his face away,
facing drowning in sins,
facing death,
facing all of that,
what he said was:
I have overcome.
