The physical effects of the scourging and crucifixion of Jesus

Jesus is nailed to the crossIn last year’s Lent 2014 issue of Catholic Insight Magazine, I wrote an article about what our Blessed Lord would have physically experienced during the scourging and crucifixion. The article was based on the book, The Crucifixion of Jesus: A Forensic Enquiry, by Dr. Frederick Zugibe. Dr. Zugibe is a forensic pathologist, a past Chief Medical Officer for Rockwood County, New York, an adjunct Associate Professor at Columbia University, and the President of the Association of Scientists and Scholars International for the Shroud of Turin. His book is extremely thorough.

The article is also available on the Catholic Insight website. I invite you to read it here and to ponder what our Lord suffered for us.

  2. So very difficult to think about. How do we complain about our sufferings when we know what Jesus did – for us!
