Transcript of The Resurrection of Jesus

Scourging of Jesus Crucifixion of Jesus By the Jews and Romans The Trials of Jesus Gethsemane From the Findings of William Edwards MD, Wesley Gable Md, and Floyd Hosmer MS Scientific Proof Historical Proof From the Findings of Highly Acclaimed Doctors and Philosophers Around the World The Physical Death of Christ The Resurrection Proof that the Death and Resurrection of Jesus Christ Occurred The Resurrection and Death of Jesus Hematidrosis From Historians at the Time of Jesus After he was found in the garden of Gethsemane, Jesus of Nazareth underwent Jewish and Roman trials, was scourged, was sentenced to death by crucifixion, and was stabbed in the side with a spear. Modern medical interpretation of the historical evidence such as the Gospels and the Shroud of Turin indicates that Jesus was dead when taken down from the cross. Jesus, apparently knowing he would soon die, suffered great mental anguish and, described by Luke, Jesus began to sweat blood (hematidrosis).

Hematidrosis: -A very rare phenomenon
-Occurs in highly emotional states
-Hemorrhaging of sweat glands, skin becomes tender Jewish Trials: -Arrested soon after midnight
-Found guilty of blasphemy by Caiaphas and Sanhedrin
-Jesus was blindfolded, spat on, and punched while exhausted for being awake for so late and so long
-Sent to Romans for permission to execute Jesus Roman Trials:-Sent to Pontius Pilate and was found innocent, sent to Herod
-Herod didn't make any charges and sent him back to Pilate
-People demanded crucifixion, and to keep his job, Pilate gave the people what they wanted, even if it meant freeing Barrabas.

Health of Jesus: Between 9 PM Thursday and 9AM Friday, he had suffered great emotional stress (abandonment by Apostles) and a physical beating from the first trial. Jesus would have also been suffering from exhaustion because he had to walk 2.5 miles through the night. Romans used the flagrum, had iron balls and bone on it
