QRN is the semitic root for strength. Just as Simon of Cyrene introduces new strength (he alone is able to bear the cross, evidently because Jesus can't carry it, because Jesus is pure spirit or because Simon has to be the crucified person in the place of Jesus), so the fact that Jesus enters under Cyrenius (the Roman) means that Jesus introduces new divine strength in the History itself. Or something of similar.
