Jesus on a Cross

The Watchtower, January 15, 1966, p. 63

"We know that Jesus Christ was nailed to the torture stake. On occasions following his death and resurrection. Jesus materialized fleshly bodies bearing the marks of such impalement. In one instance, he invited Thomas to inspect the wounds inflicted in his hands by means of the nails. (John 20: 19-29)"

Awake!, November 8, 1972, p. 28

"No Biblical evidence even intimates that Jesus died on a cross."

"So, the evidence indicates that Jesus did not die on the traditional cross."

"Ébeginning with its issue of October 15, 1931, The Watchtower no longer bore the cross and crown symbol on its cover."

The Watchtower, August 15, 1987, p. 29

"We do know that his hands or arms were not simply bound, for Thomas later said; 'Unless I see in his hands the print of the nails.' (John 20:25)

That could have meant a nail through each hand, or the plural 'nails' might have reference to nail prints in his hands and his feet. (See Luke 24:39.) We cannot know precisely where the nails pierced himÉWe thus recognized that depictions of Jesus' death in our publications, such as you see on page 24, are merely reasonable artistic renderings of the scene, not statements of anatomic absolutes."
