Common Facts Surrounding the Resurrection
Fact 3 - He Suffered Torture and Death by Crucifixion

To many Jews, the degrading death by crucifixion was precisely the proof that He was not the Messiah. But regardless of how they interpreted His death, it was not denied. To be much more precise about His torture and death, He endured six trials, a crown of thorns, Roman scourging, and finally, His hands and feet were pierced as He was nailed to the cross. A spear was thrust into His side, and ultimately He was pronounced dead by a centurion.5
