What are your thoughts on the location of the nails on Jesus hands modern pics has the nails through the palm of his hands but according to other reports the nails were through the wrists. I have looked in the bible and see nothing specific but I could be overlooking it.

On the History Channel, I watched a documentory on the Life of Jesus, and a Doctor showed how, if the nails where through the palms of His hands, they would have ripped through the tiny bones of His hands causing Him to fall to the ground under His weight. He went on to describe how they were placed instead through the larger bones of His wrist...so as to hold Him on the cross......precious Jesus..thank you for Your sacrifice...for us.

many modern findings about the Romans point to the nail being in the wrist on most such killings.

However I was not there at the time the nailed Jesus so either way,(Wrist or hand) it makes little difference.

Years ago I read a physians description of the crucifixtion.
It was horrifying.
Apparently, the time on the cross is divided between pushing yourself up on the feet that are nailed to the cross, so as to gasp for air, then dropping until your chest compresses to the point that you have o lift yourself up again.

It was a long excruciating death.

Which makes what He did and said all the more incredible

Hopefully, we are living our lives so we can meet Him face to face, that way these sort of questions need not be ask of individuals, but that we can have our question answered by Yours Truly. Be blessed.

That's what I heard somewhere too, and it does make sense: nails through the wrists.
By the time they crucified Jesus, the Romans had crucified hundreds (if not thousands) of people over years and years and years of time, and likely had it down to a science. If they saw that nails through the hands wouldn't hold, then they'd change thier method...
