The Cutest Crucifixion You’ll See Today

An image of children play-acting the crucifixion of Jesus Christ at an unidentified school in Brazil for Holy Week complete with fake wounds and a crown of thorns has spread across the Internet.

The Daily Mail reports ‘Wearing a loin cloth and a fake painted beard, the boy who acts as Jesus holds his two arms above his neck, to signify the last agonizing hours of Christ on the cross.

Flecked across his body are red marks from his flogging at the hands of the Romans – played by two boys with mock-feathered galea helmets, who will presumably offer him fake vinegar and pretend to stab his side to ensure he has died at the culmination of the play.’
