    It was Satan who maneuvered the things this way. Similar to what happened to Job. God withdrew at that point, He allowed that Jesus would be killed but it was not Him who directed the torture.

    Satan was hoping Jesus would become unfaithful.

    Oh I guess you will believe it if it is on an episode Dexter. Never mind, myyy baaad, lmao!

    I have read a couple of your posts. While I'll be honest, I don't exactly like some of your language ( no offense) , I like your "critical thinking" that everyone on this site thinks they have mastered and have all the answers ( sort of like the GB). While I like sharing thoughts from time to time, this place can be laughable. Just because you can question things, doesn't mean you should question every piece of common sense. Anyway, keep it up.

    brutality? how about if Jesus would have really be impaled according to the conventional, not 'wt meaning' of the word? the pointed stake perhaps coming out his shoulder? the ransom is billed as the ultimate sacrifice, it certainly was not the ultimately possible agony inflicted. ever.

    shame on the rulers. or story writers.

    Prologos is right, they were very cruel in old times. Horrible cruel. I visited a museum with torture instruments from the middle ages ... horrible, unspeakable.
