Was Jesus Crucified and Did He Die of Crucifixion?
There are some who question the validity of the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ. If Jesus Christ was not murdered and then rose from the grave, then He is no different than any of the wise men or prophets of other religions. Jesus’ resurrection is what gives Him the authority to say He is God and that there is no other means to experience eternal salvation except to acknowledge Him as your Lord and Savior.
Some will argue that Jesus was never resurrected because He did not die on the cross. We will prove that Jesus not only suffered extreme pain, but had to have died on the cross. And after His death, He was resurrected.
We will be using medical and historical information, with some references to the Bible. Of course, the Bible more than verifies the truth of Jesus’ claims, but an atheist, agnostic, or new spiritual seeker may not believe the Bible is true. In regards to the authenticity of Jesus being a real person who lived on this earth, the historical information on His crucifixion and resurrection will verify there was a historical Jesus, not just a mythical person. There are several books that cover this subject matter. They have much documented evidence to prove the reliability of the Bible.
If the Bible is true, then Jesus birth, Crucifixion, and Resurrection are true. Some will argue that you can’t trust the Bible because it was written by those who believed in Jesus. If you use this argument regarding biographies and history books (this is what the Four Gospels are like), you see how foolish it is. Many biographies are written by people who loved the person they are writing about, but we do not question their validity. There are those who write about history who have their prejudices but we do not deny the facts that are in their books. Read on the Validity of the Bible.
