I’m glad that’s cleared up.

He was nailed....but through the wrists, severing the median nerve (causing unbelievable pain) and providing enough support to hold the body up (they never, ever crucified through the hands).

One other tidbit: when you sever the median nerve, the thumbs fold inward.

Joh 20:25 So the other disciples were saying to him, "We have seen the Lord!" But he said to them, "Unless I see in His hands the imprint of the nails, and put my finger into the place of the nails, and put my hand into His side, I will not believe."

Joh 20:26 After eight days His disciples were again inside, and Thomas with them. Jesus *came, the doors having been shut, and stood in their midst and said, "Peace be with you."

Joh 20:27 Then He said to Thomas, "Reach here with your finger, and see My hands; and reach here your hand and put it into My side; and do not be unbelieving, but believing." Joh 20:28 Thomas answered and said to Him, "My Lord and my God!"

There is not one verse in the Bible that says Jesus was nailed to the cross.

Uummmmm. What does this person think exactly how crucifixion was carried out? When someone goes to the Electric Chair, one does not have to say how he was strapped in and the dome put on his head and the wires were hooked up. The words "electric chair" says it all.

I only made it about half way through the video and then I realized I was experiencing the Chinese water drop torture. Couldn't take any more and shut it down.

John 20:25 - “So the other disciples told him, “We have seen the Lord!” But he said to them, “Unless I see the nail marks in his hands and put my finger where the nails were, and put my hand into his side, I will not believe it.””

Colossians 2:14 “... having canceled the written code, with its regulations, that was against us and that stood opposed to us; he took it away, nailing it to the cross.”

John Chapter 20:24-31
24 But Thomas, one of the twelve, called Didymus, was not with them when Jesus came.

25 The other disciples therefore said unto him, We have seen the LORD. But he said unto them, Except I shall see in his hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into his side, I will not believe.

26 And after eight days again his disciples were within, and Thomas with them: then came Jesus, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, Peace be unto you.

27 Then saith He to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing.

28 And Thomas answered and said unto him, My LORD and my God.

29 Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen Me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.

30 And many other signs truly did Jesus in the presence of His disciples, which are not written in this book:

31 But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through His name.

What will your next thread be?

"It Can't Be Proved that Jesus was Born In Bethlehem"?

I can’t believe you think you even have a demonstrable thesis with this.

What great theological point are we supposed to derive if we decide that Jesus was not nailed? Is this just a ‘ha, ha, I know something you don’t know’? Or is there something of profound spiritual meaning that people have been missing for nearly 2000 years?

Chatter i think you have made a serious error in logic here, trying to prove a negative with the proposition that “Jesus was hung on the cross,” and “Jesus was not nailed to the Cross.”

The first phrase does not serve as a proof of the second. It is simply insufficient. Further, given our historical knowledge of common Roman Crucifixion practice, nails were commonly used. This was so that they could drive the point home that they were being punished. :o)

The Scriptures explicitly tell us that Jesus showed the nail prints in his hands and the spear wound in the side. He told Thomas to “thrust” his fingers into the nail holes and to “thrust” his hand into the wound in Jesus’ side. How anyone can possibly claim that Jesus was not nailed to the cross must be totally ignorant of Scripture. Whether or not Jesus was nailed through his hands or wrests cannot be definitely known. The skeleton of a crucified man was found with what looked like large wooden washers. It could be that crucifixion was through the hand and supported by washers to disperse the weight.
