So it took him six hours to die...

How come it's so short? I thought the average was a couple of days minimum?

He wasn't very healthy.
Trust me, I'm a random stranger on the internet.
Live long, be happy, and try to ensure those around you do as well.

Yeah and he was given 39 out of the 40 lashes that constituted a death sentence just earlier

That was after he was dead wasn't it? To make sure he was dead.

He was also repeatedly tortured for hours before the actual crucifixion.

Well, considering they beat the everloving crap out of him and tortured him first, he didn't have much fight left in him. Remember, he needed help carrying the cross.

Extreme blood loss and exhaustion, mostly.
Sometimes I'd like to ask God why He allows poverty, suffering, and injustice when He could do something about it. But Im afraid He'd ask me the same thing.

The weight of the body pulling down causing collapse of the lungs, so as the body sank Christ had to raise Himself. There was no support for the feat at the crucifixes show
