Stations of the Cross Photoessay - 1 - Jesus is condemned to death

The noble class, whether in the West or the East, had the power to decide life and death. The absolute power may be moderated in some ways today, but the warrior mentality of holding down those who offer rebellious political stances remains: repress and condemn. But power weilded is often power siezed.

I show a statue from Japan in October 2012 that I found frightening. The samurai warrior clearly could dispose of life if it preserved the status quo.

Jesus posed a threat and was disposed. His judge and jury and people sentenced him to his tortured death.
