Chapter Summary

This chapter talks about the Mocking and Scourging of the Lord (3.6-9). The action of 'taking the Lord' portrays the overt aggression by a vindictive crowd who have rejected the jurisdiction of Roman justice as exemplified by Pilate. Coupled with the mocking of Jesus as a judge-figure, the narrative in the Gospel of Peter appears to be drawing creative inspiration for the scene from traditions inherited from the Johannine passion narrative.
