I watched a documentary years ago which pointed out that nails through the palms of the hands wouldn't hold the weight of the body. The nails would in fact have been knocked through the wrist bones. (barbaric and unspeakably cruel)
Oh phew, Michael, that's a comfort! (She's actually very nice, and I doubt if she'd throw a strop at my over-logical doubts)
After his resurrection, Jesus apparently stood on the shore and told a group of disciples who were out fishing where to get a large catch. They brought the fish ashore and they all sat down and had a feast. Does this mean Jesus actually ate and drank? With his hands, brow, side and back lacerated and wounded? And presumably his digestive tract was in working order which I find strange, though I can't explain why.
