Medical Aspect of the Crucifixion
I meant to have posted this last week but didn't get to it. As we continued our "Perspectives" series last week, we took a look at the Crucifixion from a medical aspect, or from a Doctor's perspective. I had heard something similar before and even spoke on it myself, but thought of who else to present it than our very own Dr. Sam Olsen. It's neat how God works things out because I had thought about asking Sam to talk about it and then found out that he was researching and studying the subject himself. Sam told us about things that are written in the scriptures such as in Luke 22:44 when Jesus' sweat became as blood. This is an actual condition called hematidrosis that can occur when one is under extreme stress such as Jesus was. It was a great night as Sam gave excellent insight as a doctor of what our Savior suffered on the cross for each one of us.
