Question
Good day EddieG


John 20:25;

"unless I see in his hands the print of the nails and stick my finger into the print of the nails and stick my hand into his side, I will certainly not believe".



If JW said that JESUS impaled on a STAKE, and (perhaps) uses 1 nail for the two wrists, and 1 nail for the feet, then how can you explain the above verse?? It says, print of the NAILS(plural) and points ONLY TO THE HANDS(not including the feet)...???




Another,

Matthew 27:37

"Above his head they had put the charge against him in writing: 'THIS IS JESUS, KING OF THE JEWS' ".




The writing was actually above JESUS' HEAD!!! It didn't say "ABOVE HIS HANDS"

Hi Dave,

'Not sure why are you asking these "gotcha" questions. Furthermore, there are more important questions than these.

In any case, let me entertain your thinking faculty.

You said:

>>If JW said that JESUS impaled on a STAKE, and (perhaps) uses 1 nail for the two wrists, and 1 nail for the feet, then how can you explain the above verse?? It says, print of the NAILS(plural) and points ONLY TO THE HANDS(not including the feet)...???<<

My answer to your question by way of simple questions are these:

Are you 100% sure that ONLY ONE nail was used to impale Jesus (by his hands)?

If yes, how do you know?

Also, is it possible that they could have used 2 or more nails to impale Jesus' hands above his head?

If yes then what's the point of your questions?

If no, that is - it's impossible for it to happen that way, then how do you know?


As for the "cross" being an upright pole not a cross beam - this had already been answered and explained so many times. So I wouldn't get into it.

As for this:

>>"Matthew 27:37

"Above his head they had put the charge against him in writing: 'THIS IS JESUS, KING OF THE JEWS' ".

The writing was actually above JESUS' HEAD!!! It didn't say "ABOVE HIS HANDS"<<

Well, it's still above his head - still a true statement from Matthew.

Just because "ABOVE HIS HANDS" wasn't mentioned doesn't necessarily mean they were not.
