Scourging

(1 Kings 12:11). Variously administered. In no case were the
stripes to exceed forty (Deut. 25:3; compare 2 Cor. 11:24). In the
time of the apostles, in consequence of the passing of what was
called the Porcian law, no Roman citizen could be scourged in
any case (Acts 16:22-37). (See BASTINADO T0000469.) In the
scourging of our Lord (Matt. 27:26; Mark 15:15) the words of
prophecy (Isa. 53:5) were fulfilled.
