At the age of 33, Jesus was condemned to death .
At the time Crucifixion was the “worst” death. Only the worst
Criminals were condemned to be crucified. Yet it was Even more dreadful for Jesus, unlikeOther criminals condemned to death by
Crucifixion Jesus was to be nailed to the Cross by His hands and feet. Each nail Was 6 to 8 inches long.
The nails Were driven into His wrist. Not Into His palms as is commonly
Portrayed. There’s a tendon in the wrist that Extends to the shoulder. The Roman guards knew That when the nails were being hammered into the Wrist that tendon would tear and
Break, forcing Jesus to use His back
Muscles to support himself so that He could Breath.
Both of His feet Were nailed together. Thus He was forced to Support Himself on the single nail that
Impaled His feet to the cross.
Jesus could Not support himself with His legs because of the pain So He was forced to alternate between arching His Back then using his legs just to continue to Breath. Imagine the struggle, the pain, the Suffering, the courage.
Jesus endured this
Reality for over 3 hours.
Yes, Over 3 hours! Can you imagine this kind of Suffering? A few minutes before He died,
Jesus stopped bleeding. He was simply pouring water From his wounds.
From common images We see wounds to His hands and feet and even the spear wound To His side… But do we realize His wounds Were actually made in his body.
A hammer Driving large nails through the wrist, the feet overlapped
And an even large nail hammered through the arches, then a
Roman guard piercing His side with a spear. But Before the nails and the spear Jesus was whipped and
Beaten. The whipping was so severe that it tore the Flesh from His body. The beating so horrific that His
Face was torn and his beard ripped from His face. The Crown of thorns cut deeply into His scalp. Most men
Would not have survived this torture.
“He had no more blood
To bleed out, only water poured from HisWounds.
The human 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 His
Members; a crown of thorns on His head and, beyond
That, a Roman soldier who stabbed a spear into His
All these without
Mentioning the humiliation He suffered after carrying His own
Cross for almost 2 kilometers, while the crowd spat in his
Face and threw stones (the cross was almost 30 kg of weight,
Only for its higher part, where His hands were
Jesus had To endure this experience, to open the Gates of Heaven,So that you can have free Access to God.
So that your sins Could be “washed” away. All of them,with no exception!
Don’t ignore this situation.
