They humiliated him and even his friends betrayed him and forsake him. He was made to carry the cross he would later be  nailed to and they tempted him with vinegar wine mixed with “gall”, something scholars say may have been bitter…

Also, when a man of Robin Williams profile does something like take his own life, it invariably affects us as pastors because…
