For our Good Friday tea, we started with "TheKing's Crown"
"And Pilate asked him,'Are you the King of the Jews?' And he answered him, ' You have said so." Mark 15:2The crowns can also be used for The Crown of Thorns, "..............and, plaiting a crown of thorns they put it on him." Mark 15:17

The Purple Cloak( I used grape jelly to top the seamless garments)
"And the clothed him in a purple cloak......." Mark 15:17
Golgotha Tuna( It was sugested to used hard boiled eggs with skull and crossbone but, we usually have tuna for lunch on Friday. )
"And they brought Him to the place called Golgotha ( which means the place of the skull) " Mark 15:22
The Seamless Garment( with 2 cubes of cheese on each to represent the dice cast as the soldiers gambled for Our Lord's garment.

"And with Him they crucified two robbers, one on His right and one on His left" Mark 15:27

"And one ran and, filling a sponge full of vinegar , put it on a reed aand gave it to Him to drink, saying'Wait let us see whether Elijah will come to take Him down." Mark 15:36
The Roman Centurion
