in response to reader comment: God does not lie

Good teaching,

but I will throw a monkey wrench in your gears. On Golgotta, it was Jews who were being crucified, and the Sabbath was coming, and it was expedient to quicken thier death by breaking thier legs and causing them to suffocate quickly, if that were possible., so as not to leave them hanging on the Sabbath. Outside of Jerusalem, or on any other day of the week, The 3 day ordeal of death by crucifixation would apply. Jesus was spared the broken legs for he had already expired. Do not forget that he had been without sleep or rest for over 24 hrs, more or less. He was also tortured and cruelly beaten. This would have weakened him to the point of physical exhaustion.

Also note that it was Simon who carried his cross to the place of crucifixtion, due to the collapse of Jesus. Thanks for the comparision of the Scriptures, and the words of the quran.. peace..

Submitting....
