Jesus' crown of thorns

An amazing thought from Echo group the other night that I didn't want to forget.

The soldiers put on a crown of thorns on Jesus. In Genesis, thorns were a symbol of the curse that came as a result of our turning away to God. On the cross, Jesus became a curse on our behalf, that we might become the righteousness of God (paraphrased from both Gal. 3:13 and 2 Cor. 5:21). Jesus was broken so we could be healed. What an amazing thing God has done.
