Just a couple of pat questions that have yet to be answered by a J-Dub
1. If Jesus was put to deth on a torture stake, then why do the Gospel writers explicitely state that Pilate's sign was placed over his head & not his hands?
2. If crucifixion was not the method by which Jesus was executed, then why did Thomas want to see the imprints of the nails, plural, and not nail in the hands of Jesus?
3. Recent archeological excavations reveal that crucifixion was the common method of execution employed by the Romans in that day. Why would the Roman army change SOP for this one Jewish rabble rouser?
Edited to add: If someone has a response to these that you have heard or can think of, I would love to read it.
