Via Dolorosa

While it is not certain, this is possibly the road that Jesus walked down with the cross upon His back. It was on this road, if this is the right one, that Jesus fell under the weight of His cross and someone was compelled to help Him.

Mark 15:20–22 “And when they had mocked him, they stripped him of the purple cloak and put his own clothes on him. And they led him out to crucify him. And they compelled a passerby, Simon of Cyrene, who was coming in from the country, the father of Alexander and Rufus, to carry his cross. And they brought him to the place called Golgotha (which means Place of a Skull).”

Here is what it is like today…

I have an incredible wife that God gave to me on May 10, 1997. Since then, the Lord has blessed us with three wonderful boys. I am also the pastor of the First Baptist Church of Polk City, Florida.
