Cruelty and Violence
Science and History
The governing body of the Jehovah's Witnesses insist that Jesus died on a "torture stake," not on a cross. Watchtower publications often show this with Jesus nailed to a vertical stake, with his hands over his head and a single nail passing through his wrists. But if he was executed on a torture stake, then why did Thomas say "unless I see in his hands the print of the nailS...."? Wouldn't there have been only one nail through his hands if he died in that manner?
