You are right: the betrayal of loved ones is the cause for loneliness: this would have hurt him to the most… but then do not also forget that Jezus loved humanity itself, and it would have broken his heart to see humanity turn his back on him.

According to Merriam-Webster online dictionary, the definition of “scapegoat” is:

noun \ˈskāp-ˌgōt\

Definition of SCAPEGOAT

1: a goat upon whose head are symbolically placed the sins of the people after which he is sent into the wilderness in the biblical ceremony for Yom Kippur

2 a: one that bears the blame for others

b: one that is the object of irrational hostility

Examples of SCAPEGOAT

* The CEO was made the scapegoat for the company’s failures.


1scape; intended as translation of Hebrew ʽazāzÄ“l (probably name of a demon), as if ʽēz ‘ōzÄ“l goat that departs—Lev 16:8(Authorized Version)
First Known Use: 1530


This sort of makes sense out of the whole perception that the former Penn State President is somebody’s “scapegoat.” For whatever reason, “enabling” Sandspathsky’s crimes isn’t being viewed as criminal, itself. So, somebody’s got to be the “scapegoat” and bear the sins of the sinner. What utter bullshit. The only one that didn’t actively enable was the assistant coach that made a squawk about what he’d witnessed and was fired as a result of his conscience speaking out about something that was clearly WRONG.

Ex-Penn State President Graham Spanier sat court side at the school’s men’s basketball game against Nebraska Saturday, making a rare high-profile appearance as he awaits trial on charges he hushed up child sex abuse allegations against former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky.

Spanier told The Patriot-News at halftime that he was ‘invited’ to attend the game but wouldn’t say by whom. He then said he ‘wasn’t giving interviews.’ Nebraska narrowly edged out Penn State for the win, 68-64.

‘I was kind of surprised that he’s here since it seems like he’s been laying low for awhile,’ Penn State student Maddy Pryor reportedly said. ‘It’s just kind of weird.’
