Weak from hours of questioning and abuse from his jailers, our Lord Jesus Christ was condemned to death by a method usually reserved as a punishment for reviled criminals – crucifixion. Dragged through the streets of Jerusalem, a thorny crown was placed upon his head, mocking those who proclaimed him as the true King. A huge cross, which would be the instrument of his death, was hoisted onto his already gravely wounded back. Accompanied by the sounds of jeering crowds, he bravely bore the tremendous burden. Each step of the journey was a torment, as the Lord slowly and painfully made the way to Golgotha, the Place of the Skull.
The 1st statue in the Passion Collection, The Cross He Bears commemorates in solid silver the Son's ordeal on the way to Golgotha. Sculpted in heart-wrenching detail, the folds and drapes of his robes flow with a sense of movement, while the expression of tension in his face captures our Lord's determination to fulfil his role as our Saviour and the redeemer of our sins. This heirloom quality collectible reflects the faith that Jesus had in God's plan, and reminds us that in order to follow his word, sometimes we must also be willing to give up comfort and bear painful burdens. This hand-finished silver statue stands at 4 inches tall and contains more than 7 Troy ounces of 925 silver, making a wonderful addition to your collection or gift for your cherished ones.
