A funny thing happened on the way to the execution
In this poem, Glen Scrivener unpacks the sad humour and irony in Jesus’ execution.
1) The Judge is put in the dock
2) The King is convicted of treason
3) The Truth is held in contempt of court
4) God is declared a heretic
How amazing that despite this, God doesn’t respond with a thunderbolt, but instead with arms unfurled in forgiveness!
