Our Jesus

Our Jesus

Did you know:
Most “criminals” who were crucified were not nailed to the cross. They were bound. Our Lord was nailed. The nails were 6 to 8 inches long.The first nails were driven into Jesus’ wrists–not his palms There is a tendon in the wrist that extends to the shoulder. The Roman guards knew that when the nails were being hammered in our Lord’s wrists that the tendon would tear and break and Jesus would have to use his back muscles to support himself so he could “rise up” to breath. Both of our Savior’s feet were then nailed together. He then had to support himself on a single nail that impaled his feet to the Cross. Now, Jesus was unable to support Himself with both His legs. Because of the unimaginable pain, Jesus had to use all His strength to alternate between arching His back then using what little strength He had in His legs just so He could draw a breath.
He struggled, He suffered, He was in pain unlike any other and He HAD COURAGE!!
For us… He did this for us!!!
Tomorrow, I will tell you more.
