What to know before you visit
Dr. Georgia Purdom will provide an in-depth look into the biological, emotional, and mental aspects of what Jesus went through in His last days this Sunday at the Creation Museum. In the Anatomy and Physiology of the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ, Dr. Purdom paints a realistic picture of His suffering and answers many common questions and criticisms.
Starting with the Garden of Gethsemane and walking through the trials, beating, flogging and finally the crucifixion, Dr. Purdom will help listeners to see how Jesus, being fully human and divine at the same time, experienced the same very real pain and anguish that any person would when abandoned by his best friends, wrongly accused, and subjected to the cruelest punishment in human history. She will combine details provided throughout scripture and other Jewish and Roman historical accounts, along with clips from the movie “The Passion of the Christ” to pull together a comprehensive picture of Jesus’ sacrifice.
Take time this Easter season to remember what Jesus did for us and learn, perhaps for the first time, what it must have been like. Just as with the rest of the Bible, we need to remind ourselves that the story of Jesus’ suffering is not just a story, but it is true history revealed to us for a reason. God has given us many details, some of which may seem gruesome, but He wants to show us the terrible consequences of sin and the depth of His love.
