…his appearance was so disfigured beyond that of any human being and his form marred beyond human likeness.

Isaiah 52:14

Adam was beautiful, made in the image of God, but he marred and corrupted the loveliness of God’s creation with his disobedience. All for a piece of forbidden fruit.
Jesus, the second Adam, gave up his heavenly glory to become a man, to be beaten, struck, crowned with thorns, impaled with nails, tortured, pierced and disfigured. But more than all this, Jesus allowed himself to be utterly marred beyond human likeness – to become sin. All for us.
