Why did it take such a short time for Jesus to die on the cross?

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

So it took him six hours to die...

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

I am indeed perplexed >_<









by the lack of understanding of blood loss.

You see it's been our misfortune to have the wrong religion. The Mohammedan religion too would have been more compatible to us than Christianity. -Adolf Hitler

I am indeed perplexed too, by your lack on understanding of the word 'average'. It implies that other people who were crucified - under the same conditions - did not die as quickly. Why did the thousands of others who were crucified by the Romans last longer, despite having the same blood loss issue.

Hematidrosis in the garden from the stress of the upcoming pain.

Compounding the 39 lashings, beatings, beard rippings, crown of thorns, nails through the hands and feet...

Resulting in hypovolemic shock (separation of blood and water from the spear, "I thirst")

And yet, Jesus said that no man could take His life. He didn't die until He wanted to, in saying "It is finished." and then giving up His spirit, breathing His last.

But the thunder of His power who can understand." - Job 24:14

Most people who are tortured to death last longer.

CONTRADICTION!

I wasn't suggesting a contradiction, I was clarifying something.

And the average person died of this one kind of cancer within six months, but this guy from church fully recovered! Explain that!

Being tortured to death is a lot like cancer. It's not fully predictable. One person may do well, the other not so much, even under the same circumstances. He could have ruptered an organ, or had a stroke, or a heart attack. He was being tortured to death, after all.

Well this (probably) answers the topic.

No need to be so abrasive.
