The Journey Station 1

Jesus is condemned to die

 ‘But the crowd shouted louder and louder, demanding that Jesus be crucified, and their voices prevailed. So Pilate sentenced Jesus to die as they demanded.’

Luke Ch 23 v.23-24

The Journey Station 1

Reflecting on the painting and
Your Journey through life

  1. People can feel condemned in many ways; through injustice, illness, bereavement, job loss, or rejection.
  2. Take a moment to imagine Jesus, yourself, a loved one, or others as the faceless figure in the painting – someone who feels condemned. Who is in the painting for you? What does it make you think or feel?

  3. ‘Condemn none: if you can stretch out a helping hand, do so. If you cannot, fold your hands, bless your brothers and sisters, and let them go their own way.’ Swami Vivekananda
