Jesus' Suffering and Crucifixion - A Medical Point of View
We can sometimes "forget" what Jesus did for us on the cross.
Check out this video about what Jesus actually did for us, from a physical point of view.
Warning: parts of it are somewhat "graphic".
But it was not the spear thrust, it was not the pain of the cross, that caused the death of Jesus. That cry, uttered "with a loud voice" (Matthew 27:50; Luke 23:46), at the moment of death, the stream of blood and water that flowed from His side, declared that He died of a broken heart. His heart was broken by mental anguish. He was slain by the sin of the world.
