    The physical abuse, mental abuse and maltreatment distributed out by the Jews and the Romans, as well as the lack of food, water, and sleep, also contributed to His generally weakened state. Therefore, even before the actual crucifixion, Jesus' physical condition was at least serious and possibly critical. With the knowledge of both anatomy and ancient crucifixion practices, one may form the option, that this was indeed a slow agonizing execution. Our Lord and Savior’s contributing cause of death were numerous. THE SECOND WINE (SOUR) HE DID DRINK His dried, parched, cracked lips and vocal folds, also known commonly as vocal cords needed moisture to speak. The twin infoldings of mucous membrane are stretched horizontally, from back to front,…

    The Crucifixion of Jesus The crucifixion of Jesus Christ is recorded in four different books of the New Testament; Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. The four of these stories are the same and very different at the same time, each telling generally the same story with differences and focus on different aspects of each. Of the four the telling that speaks the most to me falls between the telling by Matthew and the telling of Luke but after a second reading and more reflection the story that really…

    The film analyzes the beginning of Christianity, giving an overview of the lives of key figures, particularly Jesus and Paul, focusing on the historical context rather than the legitimacy of the miracles supposedly performed through these people. Proving or disproving whether Jesus existed or whether he performed or endured the actions for which he has become famous is not the focus of the film but, instead, his social status is the main subject of question, for example, whether or not he was a…

    The passage of my choice to interpret within the light of different gospels is about the crucifixion of Jesus on the death cross and how he was treated during that time, he was mocked and scolded and even high priests were making fun out of him but he remained determined on his preaching’s and after he breathed his last the sacred veil was torn. To clarify the background in different gospels the crux of the story is that the Jewish priests and elders of the Sanhedrin accused Jesus of blasphemy,…

    propelled the Jesus movement was Jesus’ crucifixion was seen as a massive defeat, where his followers were ready to leave and give up on the hopes of a new kingdom, but then Jesus was resurrected and this resurrection was going to give Jesus’ followers another chance at experiencing the Kingdom of God. Aside from these traditional views, some theologians argue that there are other events that propelled the Jesus movement and caused its expansion. In the chapter by Richard Horsley, “The Power…

    The crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus within the four gospels Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John have both similarities and differences when discussing the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus. I will be focusing on these commonalities and contrasts to explain how the execution and resurrection is interconnected with Christianity today. The first gospel Mark describes Jesus clothed in a purple cloak with a twisting thorn crown upon his head. The soldiers began saluting Jesus saying “Hail, King…

However, many of them do not contain accurate details, which ends up taking away from the historical accuracy by losing sight of the purpose of the Biblical account. Catherine Marshall’s Story Bible does an excellent job at keeping the stories accurate and purposeful; specifically, the account relating to Jesus’ crucifixion in Luke 23. When evaluated next to The Bible, Catherine Marshall’s Story…

    Surely everybody, who knows who Jesus Christ is, have been taught and have heard of how he was crucified on the cross for the sins of mankind. Well, while I was reading, I began to realize that Christ being crucified on the cross is being pictured throughout the whole book. In fact, the murderer uses the process of the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ as his plans for his killings. Each step he used in killing his victims is similar to what happened to Jesus. However, the fullness of true compassion…

    The Dream of the Rood The Dream of the Rood is an Old English, allegorical retelling of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ from a different point of view. Many seem to think this poem is only told from the point of view of the cross that Jesus was crucified on, but an additional interpretation is that this story is told seemingly through the point of view of a normal man, but in all actuality it is the retelling of the vision that Jesus had before he was arrested and his acceptance of his duty to…
