The flesh torn actually looks really good, representing somewhat to me how he had gotten 39 lashes with a bone whip. But actually, my pastor told me today that the nails of the cross werent actually in his hands, they were in his wrists, for if they were in his hands, the pressure from his whole body hanging, the skin on his hands would just rip through and well, you get the point: just a random fact for ya :3

Yeah I've heard that argument before, and I've heard it both ways. I think it's irrelevant to our salvation anyway. (That is, we're still saved by his death regardless of how he was nailed to the cross)
:)
Thanks for the compliment!!

Haha, your welcome.
But yeah, i mean, why would you get nailed by your hands? Your skin and hand muscle could not support all of your weight like that. Its like simple physics or something. like gravity. Anybody hung on the cross like He was was nailed like, right inbetween the two bones in the wrist, so that it couldnt break through the skin like it would the hand. Well, thats what the Pastor says.

Well i've also heard that the hand was a more painful place to be nailed, and since the romans were into causing as much pain to their prisoners as possible, they would nail them in the hands and then use ropes to secure the arms so that they wouldn't fall.
Also, they usually used a support on the bottom of the cross, with the feet, so they they were nailed to the support, and that's where they would actually stand.
Discovery channel did a show on this once, and they said that if nails in his hands were the ONLY thing that were holding him to the cross, then yes, gravity would have ripped them out, but the mere fact that his feet were nailed to the cross too, took the pressure off of his hands to the point that he would have stayed.
But like i said, it's not really that important. :D

Haha, no, it really isnt important, is it?
But yeah, I was watching this movie on it, and they showed that the legs were slightly crossed and at a slight angle, so if you did happen to, say, 'rip, your hands, you wouldnt be able to stand anyway, and the way they were nailed, even if they were tied down they would have fallen, because if you were slightly slouched foreward it would put a great deal of pressure on the chest area, because your legs and feet wouldnt be holding any of it, so the victim would most likely suffocate, which would be the equivilant of the roman just sitting there watching the torture, watching whoever was on the cross suffocate to death.

And to think that He could have called 10,000 angels to destroy the world, and set him free. But instead he chose to die for me. Not because He had to, but because He wanted to.

[yes I'm late replying to this, sorry ^^;]

I definitely like this! The more 'torn apart' the flesh looks, the more Biblical it's potrayed

I like The Message version of Isaiah 52:13-15
"Just watch my servant blossom! Exalted, tall, head and shoulders above the crowd! But he didn't begin that way.
At first everyone was appalled. He didn't even look human— a ruined face, disfigured past recognition.
Nations all over the world will be in awe, taken aback, kings shocked into silence when they see him.

For what was unheard of they'll see with their own eyes, what was unthinkable they'll have right before them."

:wow:......................I am speechless! I recently saw "The Passion of the Christ" again...and I also got my church's annual Passion Play coming up next week, this is a sobering reminder of how much it cost our Father to set us free from the law of sin and death - praise the Living God! How I thank Him for saving me every day and how much of a reminder it is that I should strive to be the man that Jesus died for me to be! Be encouraged fellow child of the Most High God! :worship:

In Christ's love and mine,
~ Kevin

Well... thank you so much for such a well thought comment... most people only say like, "wow.. nice".
Anyway, I find that I have a hard time "feeling" any emotion over what Jesus did for us, so I kind of force myself to feel, and I do that by drawing painful pictures.. do you know what I mean?
I really do appreciate what Jesus went through.. though I so long to identify with it, I have a hard time realizing the severity of it all..
I hope I'm making sense? ^^; anyway... thanks again :)

Awesome... it's beautiful, not in the fact that it's attractive or pretty,
but in the fact that it carries such emotion behind it. And such meaning.
It really made me think... about all He went through, because He loved us..
that much. Brilliant piece. It doesn't shy away from what we need to see,
and what we don't like to think of. The club needs more artwork like this.
God bless you and your talent....Thank you for posting it. =]

It makes me hurt so bad inside just seeing this. I wish I could just grab that nail, take it out, and clean the wounds up.

But if that happened, we'd all be condemned. A day doesn't go by that I am reminded of His Grace and Love for us.

Thanks, RK. :hug:

You can just see the gashes in his arms. But no matter how much we try, we can never completely imagine just what kind of torcher and pain he went through. Even the Passon movie can't express it. But great reminder.

...And he was nailed through his hands to cause more torture, unlike normal crucifixian at the time, the high priests wanted him to suffer...
But to keep his hands from tearing free from the raiload spikes going through them, his arms were thoughrly bound to the cross beams, to keep his upper body on that cross of wood.

I've heard people debate about that, and I've decided that it doesn't really matter WHERE they put the nails. It just matters that they did. :)
Thanks for commenting!

:iconneojones777:
neojones777 Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2007
It does matter, for if his upperarms were not securely tied to the cross beam, his hands would of torn through due to the weight of his body, not to mention there are a lot of nerves in the hand.., and the High Priests wanted him to suffer. And the Romans were quite versed in inflicting prolonged pain on someone.
But I think I know what you mean, it was about handing oneself over into the jaws of the beast, an ultimate act of sacrifice.
