*c*: Christ is Mocked

We read in the ninth chapter of Genesis that Noah was sleeping within his tent, lying naked upon the ground, when his son Ham saw him he laughed him to scorn, but his other sons would not behold him, but covered their eyes. Noah is a type of Christ, when the Jews laughed Him to scorn, and crowned Him and stripped Him; thus those faitbless sons mocked him as though he were a fool.
We read in the second book of Kings, and the second chapter, that when the prophet Elisha was going up into Mount Bethel there met him some children who cried out and mocked him, and laughed him to scorn saying, " Go up, thou bald-head; go up, thou bald-head!" Elisha is a type of Christ, whom His children--tbat is, the Jews--mocked in His crowning and passion.
Ps. xxii. 7 All they that see Me laugh Me to scorn Prov. xix. 29 Judgments are prepared for scorners, and stripes for the back of fools
Image: Noah's Shame.
Image: Christ crowned with Thorns.
Image: The Children of Bethel mocking Elisha.
As Ham profaned his father when he saw his nakedness. They who mocked Elisha were smitten by the wrath of God.
Lam. iii. 14 I was a derision to all My people Isa. i They have blasphemed the Holy One of Israel
So for us, Christ, Thou Holy One, dost suffer grievous wrong
