Stunning Jesus Christ Nails Cross

Nails are instruments of the passion that have received considerable scholarly discussion. Nails are not mentioned in the crucifixon scenes in the Gospels. One possibly is that he was tied rather than nailed to the cross, the way the thieves are often depicted, or in the least, that his feet were never nailed. In John 20:25 (neb), after the resurrection of Christ, Thomas requests proof:

Unless I see the mark of the nails on his hands, unless I put my finger into the place where the nails were, and my hand into his side, I will not believe.

There is a general inconsistency over whether there were three nails or four. Three nails would mean nails for the hands and one nail through both feet. The early crucifixion scenes show the nail holes but not the nails, usually with the feet hanging down. The nailing of two feet together appears as part of the development of the image of the suffering Christ. As Arms of Christ, three nails are generally used. This may be a reference to the Trinity. Helena is believed to have recovered three nails when she found the True Cross. Nails became part of the crown of the Iron Crown of Lombardy and a bit for Constantine’s horse. Hewitt notes that the best reasons for three nails are theological, possibly in connection with Psalms 22:16 (kjb), «They pierced my hands and my feet. » Besides the debate over the feet, the placement of the nails to the hands varies from the palm, to the wrist, to between the bone in the arm. Actual images of the nail range from relatively tiny nails, to a large hollow nail appearing a bit like an oversized tack, to long iron Roman nails used for construction, similar to the ones shown here. This particular example represents a modern story. The Coventry Cathedral was bombed in 1940. One of the first members on the scene found that a few timbers had collapsed into the shape of a cross. He wrote, «Father Forgive» by the timbers. A priest shaped a cross from three nails, as represented here. The Cathedral developed a Ministry of Peace and Reconciliation to help resolve conflicts in the world. The three nail cross became the symbol of these efforts.

This is my new design jesus nails cross to commemorates jesus nailed to the cross, I made this cross in solid cast bronze hand polishing and finish.
