Josephus describes several tortures and positions of crucifixion during the Siege of Jerusalem as Titus crucified the rebels;  and Seneca the Younger recounts:
Or Send Your Contribution To: Both my parents were Jews. I started attending Hebrew school as a toddler. We were forbidden to read the New Testament. Therefore we are not even going to bother studying Christianity.
We will now go on to the study of Buddhism. I at least wanted to know something about the religion we were not supposed to believe in. And I simply fell in love with the personage of Jesus Christ - what with Him going out to the people, speaking to them in parables, and healing and working incredible miracles.
Actually, I wanted Him to be primarily for me. One was defeated before he even began. If they admitted something was true about what you were telling them, the next minute they would contradict it. The Jews have an obsession for control - they love, nay, they must, be in charge.
And so we see the Jews moving their negation of Jesus Christ into an outright warfare against Him. Now they are in control and no longer guilty of unbelief but on a campaign of imposing their will on everyone around them. Do we not see this enmity, that is, their outright warfare against Jesus Christ all around us?
Why do the Jews hate Jesus Christ so much? He Who performed so many miracles for them, healing their sick, their blind, their paralyzed, and then, even raising their dead? I will tell you.

They do not believe they have ever sinned. They do not see any need to repent of anything. The Jews simply abhor the idea of getting down on their knees.
Jesus Christ was crucified by the Jews. This is an historical fact. His blood be upon us and upon our children!
AND - The Jews who run the Federal Reserve Bank who had John F Kennedy assassinated for signing a bill to have Congress utilize their constitutional mandate to print money without interest; and so on and so forth ad infinitum - has the blood of Jesus Christ on his head and on the heads of his spoiled, pampered, haughty children.
And what is that?The Purpose of Jesus’ Ministry “ Simon and those who were with him searched for him, and they found him and said to him, ‘Everyone is looking for you.’ And he said to them, ‘Let us go on to the next towns, that I may preach there also, for that is why I came out’ ” (vv.

To address the subject of the theological significance of the earthly Jesus I take as my topic the central question of Jesus . Of the earthly life of Christ, there are more prophecies concerning His death than any other subject. His substitutionary death was the main purpose for His time on earth.
The prominent three "parallel pagan" gods appear to be Dionysos (spelled Dionysis or Dionysus in the DVD), Mithras, and Osiris so I want to pay special attention to these three. They are mentioned in short interview clips with unsuspecting Christians leaving a Billy Graham crusade.
