Scourging of the mock king before he was sacrificed was the practice in the Babylonian Saccea. 1 The remarkable similarity between some portions of the story of the Passion and the ancient ritual of the sacrifice of the mock king, sacrificed as a god to a god, is altogether beyond the possibility of coincidence. And let it be borne in mind that, apart from the Gospels, the earliest Christian litera· 1 Golden Bough, p. 584 . 46 THE STORY OF THE PASSION ture knows nothing of the life of a good man, nor even of a trial and judicial execution, but treats abundantly of the sacrificial death of Jesus and the efficacy of his redeeming blood.
