‘Above his head’ Matthew 27.37 VOTD

“Above his head they put the charge against him, which read: ‘This is Jesus, the king of the Jews.'”

Matthew 27.37

The crimes of crucified criminals were posted on their crosses. Jesus’ charge was intended as an insult to the Jews.

Jesus is King, Lord, and Savior, of Jews and Gentiles. The charge written above his cross was too modest.
