    Mr Samuelsson said: “If you are looking for texts that depict the act of nailing persons to a cross you will not find any beside the Gospels.”

    I say: I would disagree with this statement.

    The Book of Mormon, which is another Testament of Jesus Christ, has this to say:

    3 Ne. 27: 14
    And my Father sent me that I might be lifted up upon the cross; and after that I had been lifted up upon the cross, that I might draw all men unto me, that as I have been lifted up by men even so should men be lifted up by the Father, to stand before me, to be judged of their works, whether they be good or whether they be evil—

    1 Ne. 11: 33
    33 And I, Nephi, saw that he was lifted up upon the cross and slain for the sins of the world.

    In other holy writings it says:

    Moses 7: 55
    55 And the Lord said unto Enoch: Look, and he looked and beheld the Son of Man lifted up on the cross, after the manner of men;

    D&C 138: 35
    35 And so it was made known among the dead, both small and great, the unrighteous as well as the faithful, that redemption had been wrought through the sacrifice of the Son of God upon the cross.

    Jehovah’s Witnesses have maintain this same argument for a long time The scripture states that Jesus was Murder on a staurus which at that time meant a pole or stake.
    The important point is not the shape of the torture instrument, but that he die for our sins, and God resurrected him.

    ARE YOU IN NEED OF HELP Mr. Samuelsson?

    -Have you ever heard of “patois”?
    - Analyzing within the context, syntaxes, terminology?
    - Have you studied about Communication Issues in Biophysique, Medicine and Cognitive Sciences?
    - Did you practice to always speak of the gist. (look this up: dzist)?

    -And finally, please study again Hebreux 10: 5-7…..
    Jesus, whether it was on a cross or else, was truly crucified to this world, to sins.
    That is why, the harshest punishment of that time, couldnt have any effect on him, for he overcomed death: NIKE OR WINNING OVER.
    Oh, let us share with you the Spirit of the Visitation and Presentation; go to
    Please, NewAnchors, give it to him.
