The Death Of Jesus In 60 Seconds

The Death Of Jesus In 60 Seconds

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, 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.

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 His


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.
He died for you! It

Is easy to pass jokes or foolish photos by e-mail, but

When it comes to God, sometimes you feel ashamed to forward

To others because you are worried of what they may think About you.

Has plans for you, show all your friends what He experienced

To save you. Now think about this! May God bless your
