Hearing Our Mocking Voices (Matthew 27:27-44)

Summary

 Looking at Matthew 27:27-44, it becomes readily apparent that Matthew wanted his readers to focus more on the mockery aimed at Jesus than the physical torture he was experiencing.  And everyone mocks him: Roman soldiers, passersby, Jewish leaders, even the criminals hanging on crosses next to him!  What is behind our mockery?  And what need does our mockery reveal?
