THE (SCIENTIFIC) DEATH OF JESUS
At the age of 33,Jesus was condemned to the death penalty.At the time crucifixion was the "worst" death. Only the worst criminals condemned to be crucified. Yet it wasEven more dreadful for Jesus, for unlike other criminals condemned to death by crucifixion, Jesus was nailed to the cross by His hands and feet, rather than tied...Each nailWas 6 to 8 inches long.The nailsWere driven into His wrist. NotInto His palms as is commonlyPortrayed. There's a tendon in the wrist thatExtends to the shoulder. The Roman guards knewThat when the nails were being hammered into theWrist, that tendon would tear andBreak, forcing Jesus to use His backMuscles to support himself, so that He could breathe.Both of His feetWere nailed together. Thus He was forced toSupport Himself on the single nail thatImpaled His feet to the cross. Jesus couldNot support himself with His legs for long because of the pain, so He was forced to alternate between arching HisBack and using his legs just to continue toBreath. Imagine the struggle, the pain, theSuffering, the courage.Jesus endured thisReality for over 3 hours.Yes,Over 3 hours! Can you imagine this kind ofSuffering? A few minutes before He died,Jesus stopped bleeding. He was simply pouring waterFrom his wounds.From common images we see wounds to His hands and feet and even the spear wound to His side...But do we remember the many woundsMade to his body. A hammerDriving large nails through the wrists, the feet overlappedAnd a nail hammered through the arches, then aRoman guard piercing His side with a spear. And...Before the nails and the spear, Jesus was whipped andBeaten. The whipping was so severe that it tore theFlesh from His body. The beating so horrific that HisFace was torn and his beard ripped from His face. TheCrown of thorns (two to three inch thorns) cut deeply into His scalp. Most menWould not have survived this torture."He had no more bloodTo bleed out, only water poured from HisWounds. TheHuman adult body contains about 3.5 liters(just less than a gallon) of blood.Jesus poured all 3.5 liters of his blood;He had three nails hammered into HisMembers; a crown of thorns on His head and, beyondThat, a Roman soldier who stabbed a spear into HisChest..
All these withoutMentioning the humiliation He passed after carrying His ownCross for almost 2 kilometers, while the crowd spat in hisFace and threw stones (the cross beam was almost 30 kg of weight, to which His hands were nailed).Jesus had to endure this experience,So that you may have free access to God.So that your sins can be "washed" away.All of them, with no exception!Don't ignore this.JESUSCHRIST DIED...FOR YOU!
