A note for Becky, above: If there were only three soldiers at the crucifixion, that means the fix was in and they weren't worried about a rescue. In cases like that, the Romans were known to have the executioner sever the wrist arteries with the nails. Still ghastly, but only for a couple of minutes. Usually death was from suffocation.
