Execution and Practical Considerations


Scientific research claims that crucifixion at the time of Jesus was carried out on a pole rather than a cross. Not only do linguistic interpretations favor pole over cross, but practical considerations also point to poles. It was relatively easy to bind a victims hands and let him hang from a notch at the top of a pole as compared to building a cross and using (very expensive) nails.

It doesn’t matter much. The results were the same. Sanctioned murder has had and has many fashions: hanging, beheading, throat-slitting, stabbing, shooting, gasing, poisoning, burning, electrocuting…

The latest fashion executes ”suspects” with hellfire missiles fired from drones. Everyone in the vicinity of the ”suspect” gets executed as well—kids, carpenters, gardeners and grandmas—but practical considerations must be made.

Discussing whether ancient victims hung from a pole or a cross is as practical as discussing whether the bombed baby was crushed under its house or torn to pieces by the explosion.

We need to be practical in our considerations.
