A Crown of Acacia Wood

Crown of Thorns

Matthew 27:29 and plaiting a crown of thorns they put it on his head, and put a reed in his right hand. And kneeling before him they mocked him, saying, “Hail, King of the Jews!”

This crown representing the golden crown of a King, it was very fitting as it was made of the same wood as the Ark of the Covenant as well as all the articles in the tabernacle. At this time of year, the acacia tree is in blossom and the branches with the sharp thorns that could have easily been formed into a crown like this.
