Scriptural Rosary
Jesus Scourged

"Contemplate Jesus Scourged At The Pillar
And You Will Grow In The Virtue Of Purity"

Catholic Rosary Myteries

Jesus Scourged is the second of the Sorrowful Mysteries of the rosary that takes place after the high priest brings Jesus before Pilate. Pilate then has Jesus scourged.

Jesus is scourged in expiation for the sins of the flesh.

Below you will find Bible verses that will accompany you in a scriptural rosary journeying through the life of Jesus.

It will aid in your meditation of Jesus suffering.

  • "And so Pilate being willing to satisfy the people, released to them Barabbas, and delivered up Jesus, when he had scourged him, to be crucified." -Mark 15:15
  • "There is no beauty in him, nor comeliness: and we have seen him, and there was no sightliness, that we should be desirous of him: Despised, and the most abject of men, a man of sorrows, and acquainted with infirmity: and his look was as it were hidden and despised, whereupon we esteemed him not. Surely he hath borne our infirmities and carried our sorrows: and we have thought him as it were a leper, and as one struck by God and afflicted. But he was wounded for our iniquities, he was bruised for our sins: the chastisement of our peace was upon him, and by his bruises we are healed." -Isaias 53:2-5
Isaias' prophecy of the passion of Jesus is chilling. Isaias uses words like 'despised' and 'a man of sorrows'.

He tells us that the Messiah would be a man 'acquainted with infirmity' and that 'we esteemed him not'.

Surely these words describe Jesus as he is brought before Pilate then undergoes the torture of being scourged.

Jesus 'borne our infirmities and carried our sorrows', 'He was wounded for our iniquities ... bruised for our sins... by his bruises we are healed.'

Why did Jesus come?

Isaias clearly answers this timeless question.

Contemplate Jesus Scourged

2 Timothy 2:22

Catholic Rosary Mysteries

There are many good books written on the topic of the passion of Jesus. One that is particularly moving is The Doloros Passion by Anne Catherine Emerich.

The fruit for this mystery of the rosary is purity. This is fitting because Jesus underwent this terrible scourging in expiation for sins of the flesh, the sins against the sixth commandment - Thou shalt not commit adultery.

Keeping yourself pure is the only way to avoid sensual sins.

Steve Wood has written some good books on the subject of purity.

I am not going to go into great detail here on what sins of the flesh are but this simple examination of conscience [meant for children] will help you get on the right path towards purity in your life...

  • Did I keep my body and behavior pure?
  • Was I pure in words, looks and actions?
  • Did I watch television or movies that were unclean?
  • Did I look at or read books that were unclean?
  • Did I listen to music that was unclean?
Remember this Beatitude that Jesus taught: "Blessed are the clean of heart: for they shall see God." -Matthew 5:5

There are many books there that can help you grow in purity.

The Bible passages used for Jesus Scourged were taken from the timeless Douay-Rheims Catholic Bible.

If you are looking for a more modern language version of the Jesus Scourged, our recommendation would be the St. Ignatius Press Bible.

Let us pray

Almighty and everlasting God, look upon the Heart of Thy well-beloved Son and upon the acts of praise and satisfaction which He renders unto Thee in the name of sinners; and do Thou, in Thy great goodness, grant pardon to them who seek Thy mercy, in the name of the same Thy Son, Jesus Christ, Who liveth and reigneth with Thee, world without end. Amen.
