Jesus is nailed to the cross

“According to Roman culture, those condemned to death by crucifixion would normally be nailed to the patibulum with three nails: one for each hand and one for the feet. The text of the resurrection appearance testify that Jesus was nailed to the cross: “On the evening of that first day of the week, Jesus came and stood among them and said, ‘Peace be with you!’ After he said this, he showed them his hands and side. The disciples were overjoyed when they saw the Lord… Now Thomas, also known as Didymus, one of the Twelve, was not with the disciples when Jesus came. So, the other disciples told him, ‘We have seen the Lord!’ But he said to them, ‘Unless I see the nail marks in his hands and put my finger where the nails were, and put my hand into his side, I will not believe.’”
(John 20,19-20.24-25)
