I can not tell you the location at this point because i have just plain forgotten it, but i am sure the info is out there somewhere.
when they did crucifictions they recorded the person, circumstances etc of each one, there is actually a historical document found that verifies Christs death by crusifiction.
Crusifiction was as common in that day as the lethal injection is in ours.
with alot of historical documentaion of it available, not just Jesus', and the bibles version of it is accurate to those documentations.
It was a gruesome and horrible death where you hung tortuously by nails in your wrists (not hands they can not hold the weight,this is a great mis-translation in alot of bibical translations)
where eventually your lungs fill with fluid and you drown.
I actually do agree the king james bible is not truly accurate.
King james had some things skewed to his own leanings when the translation was done, NIV is far closer to the original text that KJV.
being a devout christian i have studied alot of this stuff deeply.
So i feel confident when speaking about them.
