A Medical Description Of The Crucifixion.
Crucifixions and scourging were so common during the Gospel writer’s lifetime that it seems that they considered a detailed description of the crucifixion of our Lord Jesus Christ unnecessary and so we have only the concise words of the Evangelists: “Pilate, having scourged Jesus, delivered Him to them to be crucified — and they crucified Him.”
Unfamiliarity with the full horror of our Lord’s crucifixion can result in callousness to its horror and a too distant friendship with our Lord.
I am grateful to trauma surgeon Dr. David Acuna for his description of the effects of crucifixion on the human body which further helps my understanding of what Jesus suffered for me thus deepening my love for Him.
“Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me, therefore go and make disciples of all nations baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28:18-20.
We who have heard the good news and experienced freedom through Christ are responsible to proclaim it to others still enslaved by sin. Are we doing all we can to make sure that people get the message?
“THE GOSPEL IS ONLY GOOD NEWS IF IT GETS THERE IN TIME”
