This is an excellent post by Tanya Nemley.
Matthew 18:22 When Jesus said this, one of the officials nearby slapped him in the face. “Is this the way you answer the high priest?” he demanded.
Matthew 26:67 Then they spit in his face and struck him with their fists. Others slapped him
Matthew 27:30 They spit on him, and took the staff and struck him on the head again and again.
Mark 14:65 Then some began to spit at him; they blindfolded him, struck him with their fists, and said, “Prophesy!” And the guards took him and beat him.
Immanuel עִמָּנוּאֵל means “God with us”.
So let me get this straight…God Himself came down to the earth that He created and fixed things so we could straighten out our relationship with Him so that through Jesus Christ we could be holy and clean enough to be presented to God and live with Him forever in heaven? Yes!!!
