What to know before you visit
During this morning’s staff meeting, Dr. Georgia Purdom presented her talk, “The Anatomy and Physiology of the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ.” Dr. Purdom will give this talk to museum guests on Tuesday, April 19, at 3:00 PM.
While many of us grasp the spiritual reality of what Jesus did for us on the cross, few have grappled with the physical reality of the agonizing death Jesus suffered. Jesus was fully God and fully man; thus, He had to endure the very real mental, emotional, and physical effects of crucifixion. You are invited to experience Jesus’ journey from the Garden of Gethsemane to Calvary through a detailed analysis of His medical and emotional condition in addition to powerful clips from the movie The Passion of the Christ. You will be sure to gain a greater appreciation of Jesus’ sacrifice this Easter season.
Due to the graphic nature of this subject, this presentation is not recommended for our guests under the age of 12. This event is included with paid museum admission or museum membership.
