“Then they compelled a certain man, Simon a Cyrenian, the father of Alexander and Rufus, as he was coming out of the country and passing by, to bear His cross” (Mark 15:21; Matt 27:32; Luke 23:26).When we think of the crucifixion of Christ, we often think of His sacrifice; His pain from the beatings of the Romans and the heartbreak of abandonment. We think of His death. However, this verse was so important that it was included in three of the four Gospels.
