I saw this in a post from a Watchtower facebook page. A person asks about the discrepancy between the society's illustrations and the actual biblical text. Look at the response for some good humor.
Jacqui Stein I would like to ask a question as it is something I have puzzled about for a while . Why do the pictures of Jesus dying on the stake in the watchtower publications show the nails in his wrists ? The Scripture is John 20 :25 says of Thomas ......' Unless I see in his hands the print of the nails '. Jesus replies in V 27 ... to Thomas 'Put your finger here and see my hands '. I hope someone here knows the answer .
See More</form> Nelson Birdwell I think the important thing is that we concentrate on Jesus' message while he was here on earth, and even more now that his heavenly kingdom is set up and running. The illustrators of Jehovah's magazines are men who are working under inspiration. I am certain that if it were important that the nail(s) be drawn in the proper location, the Faithful and Discreet Slave would have put an article out with that information. So, sisters, it is time to put the folly of what, where, how Jesus was hung upon the stake behind us, and concentrate on the "why". 4 hours ago · Report
