Good Friday Procession - Zejtun
This statue is of Jesus praying in the garden for his disciples.
Every year on Good Friday in some of the Maltese towns a procession is held reconstructing the story of Jesus when he was crucified. This is the Zejtun town. Zejtun is also found on the southern part of the island and is close to Birzebbuga.
Jesus Sentenced to be Crucified.
Then Pilate took Jesus and had him flogged. The soldiers twisted together a crown of thorns and put it on his head. They clothed him in a purple robe and went up to him again and again saying "Hail, king of the Jews" and slapped him in the face. ......... as soon as the chief priests and their officials saw him, they shouted "Crucify! Crucify!".
