Torture Device

Torture Device

Before Jesus endured crucifixion, He endured flogging that was brutal enough to kill most people. This excavated stone sits vertically on display, but was used horizontally to restrain a victim’s arms while bearing his back to lashings with nail and/or glass-tipped leather straps. Arms were pulled through the holes seen here, and held by Roman soldiers. That’s how our Lord was flogged.
