Arrest of Jesus” by the Master of the Karlsruhe Passion

.
Just A Thought
.
Out of the blackest blue a terror seized
His soul. A thought had swiftly crossed his mind:
The Savior’s torturers had likely been
Just guys like him, who afterward enjoyed
A drink and laughs. The terror that embraced
His soul, he feared, is what that night informed
Gethsemane, far worse perhaps than thorns
And nails and scourging: Evil’s commonness.
