THE (SCIENTIFIC) DEATH OF JESUS Submitted by Connie Hopkins

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 was

Even 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 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 breathe.

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 for long because of the pain, so He was forced to alternate between arching His

Back and 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.


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 remember the many wounds

Made to his body. A hammer

Driving large nails through the wrists, the feet overlapped

And a nail hammered through the arches, then a

Roman guard piercing His side with a spear. And...

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 (two to three inch 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 His


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 Chest..

All these without

Mentioning the humiliation He passed after carrying His own

Cross for almost 2 kilometers, while the crowd spat in his

Face 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.


For you, who now read this e-mail.

Do not believe that He only died for others

(those who go to church or for pastors, bishops, etc).

He died for you!

It is easy to e-mail jokes or silly photos,

But when it comes to God,

Sometimes we feel ashamed to forward a message about Him on

To others.

We are worried of what they may think.

Accept the reality, the truth, that


God has special plans for YOU!

Share this with all your friends...

About what He went through to save you.

Really think about it!

May God bless you!
