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
Yet it was Even more dreadful for Jesus,
unlike Other 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
Were actually made in his body. A
Driving large nails through the
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
poured from
His Wounds. The human adult
body contains
about 3.5 litres (just less than a
gallon) of
Jesus poured all 3.5
Litres of his blood; He had three
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
He suffered after carrying His own
Cross for
almost 2 kilometres, 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.
He died for you! It Is easy to pass jokes or foolish
photos by
e-mail, but When it comes to God, sometimes you
ashamed to forward To others because you
are worried of
what they may think
About you.
God Has plans for you, show all your friends
what He experienced
To save you. Now think about this! May God bless
your Life!
