Crucifixion and the Death Cry of Jesus Christ The synoptic gospels (Matthew, Mark and Luke) emphatically state that Jesus cried out in a loud voice just as he breathed his last. This cry caused hardened Roman soldiers to fear, praise God, and state that "truly, this man was the Son of God." All the multitudes who came together for this spectacle, when they saw what happened, began to return, beating their breast. Why were the multitudes so affected by Christ's death? In this book, Dr. Phelan combines more than thirty years of the study of medicine, ancient languages, and scripture to show the reality of the death of Jesus Christ. A clear description of the ancient times and the crucifixion process is presented. Seasoned Bible scholars will find refreshing new insight into what happened when Jesus was crucified. New believers can learn how the suffering of Jesus really happened. All will be reminded that Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. Dr Geoffrey Phelan is a graduate of Johns Hopkins University and Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. He has been in the private practice of Family Medicine in Southern California for more than 30 years. He and Donna, his wife of 34 years, live in Southern California, and have five grown children.
