  • Paul says:

    Considering the goal of crucifixion was to bring about a slow, agonizing death by asphyxiation, each of these sayings was extremely meaningful. Jesus had to push up on the nail in his feet to catch enough breath to make each of these statements. This produced a pain so intense they coined a new word to describe it: excruciating, meaning “out of the cross.”
