The Science of the Crucifixion
Each year, Cahleen Shrier, Ph.D., associate professor in the Department of Biology and Chemistry, presents a special lecture on the science of Christ's crucifixion. She details the physiological processes a typical crucified victim underwent and teaches her students to see Christ's death on the cross with new understanding. The exact events in this scenario may not have happened in Jesus' specific case, but the account is based on historical documentation of crucifixion procedures used during that time period. Please be aware that the following is of a realistic and graphic nature.

It is important to understand from the beginning that Jesus would have been in excellent physical condition. As a carpenter by trade, He participated in physical labor. In addition, He spent much of His ministry traveling on foot across the countryside. His stamina and strength were, most likely, very well developed. ...

The reason I appreciate these articles is that they magnify grace. When you consider Gethsemane, and spitting, and near death scourging, and thorns, and the mockery with the robe, and the nails in the nerves, and the literal suffocation, and etc; I take a look at that, and when I step back into Isaiah 53 and see that the physical pain, while the worst form of torturs and not to be diminished, was but a drop in the bucket compared to what he really experienced.
It makes you wonder, what is crushed? Was it total darkness and weeping and gnashing of teeth burning inside his very scars? We can't see crushed or forsaken, but the medical details do magnify crushed for sure.

I haven't read the article itself yet, but remember reading this tyle of description once before. I always consider all that Christ must have endured; how he must have suffered. Whenever I'm praying and mention what he did for us, I always talk to him and thank him for what he really went through. I think many tend to picture him carrying the cross and being up on it, as opposed to stepping back to his surrender and all that he had to endure from that moment and moving forward. I heard an athiest shouting to Ray Comfort one time in response to Christ's death on the cross. He said, "he was up there for 6hrs...big deal. He had it easy compared to most".
What.many don't stop to consider is the complete package, from beginning to end, the incredible physical and mental anguish, the unimaginable pain and humiliation, etc, well before ever picking up that cross as he walked to his death.
He.could have called his angels to release him at any moment but I think he proved he could and did do something that not one man, past, present, or future could ever endure. He wasn't just nailed to a cross...he was humiliated and brutalized, over, and over, and over and made a spectacle for laughs and jeers.

¬°Sorry---stevenr----! One can't go back to correct such things as mispellings with the Android app. Have a fine Resurrection Sunday.

Sorry, stever confusing you with SteveR, whatever his flavor of theology is? Nor was I criticizing you for reading it as such, since I read similar material myself--but this material can be very upsetting for some people--and not inspirational.

I understand your statement, but you missed mine. Service for Christ is done out of gratitude for what He did for me. (Not because I think it will earn me a spot in Heaven) Romans 12:1 speaks of our "reasonable service" and it just seemed reasonable to me that if He could do THAT to pay for MY sins, then I shouldn't balk at trying to use my life for His glory.
I never suggested that everyone has to read something similar, nor did I suggest that one could not be a good Christian without reading. What I said was "...we should all be willing to do more for Him, since He did so much for us..."

By the way, I'm stevenr not stever. I'm an independent, fundamental Baptist... NOT a Catholic.
I'm not trying to be rude, take this how you will, but I noticed a tendency for several commenters to merely skim what is read, and respond to a name (or assumed name) instead of the actual comment. We should be on the lookout for heresy, but let's make sure it is heresy before pouncing.

SteveR, if my first response wasn't done on a tablet, I would have passed out a warning on such material. A true description of what happened to Christ before and during the crucifixion is not for the tenderhearted. In other words, your female relatives could very well be spared reading such material. I would also doubt that one can't be a good Christian, if he doesn't read such material. So, I am not sure just how much good having the various forms of torture that Christ went through described in detail, will make one a better Christian. It might make him a "better" Catholic, but that should not be the aim of any Christian.

When I first accepted Christ, I was given a book like this; a medical view of the crucifixion of Christ... It changed my perspective on service; we should all be willing to do more for Him, since He did so much for us.

By the way, I hope that everyone has a very thoughtful Resurrection Sunday and thank Christ for what he did for us
