As many were astonied at thee; his visage was so marred more than any man, and his form more than the sons of men:
1. "his visage was so marred more than any man, and his form more than the sons of men."
a. Isaiah 50:5, 6 "The LORD GOD hath opened mine ear, and I was not rebellious, neither turned away back.
I gave my back to the smiters, and my cheeks to them that plucked off the hair: I did not my face from shame and spitting."
1). Matthew 27:67, 68 "Then did they spit in his face, and buffeted him; and others smote him with the palms of their hands,
Saying, Prophesy unto us, thou Christ, Who is he that smote thee?"
b. Because of the physical abuse he received at the hands of the Romans and the Jews his physical appearance was worse than anyone who had experienced that type of punishment. I believe that because Jesus had a perfect physical body, i.e. a body that had not experienced the ravages of the fall, his physical and mental and of course spiritual stamina was far superior, which in turn allowed him to receive more physical punishment that any other man.
