    Is there any historical evidence that these kinds of executions happened in Ancient ones? Did the Romans do these executions or not? There are people who deny these things happened in the old days like people deny the Holocaust.
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    People that deny the holocaust are pretty dumb too.
    Crucifixions really happened.
    All history books can't be wrong.

    Yes, there is LOTS of historical accounts, and many different ways to crucify people. Much like the holocaust, there are always going to be people that deny facts in spite of overwhelming evidence otherwise.

    Most debates around the crucifixion are more centered around the method (cross, tree, stake, etc.) not so much the punishment or if the Romans in fact crucified people.

    There sure is historical evidence.
    Google it or look it up on wikipedia.

    He could study the Roman Caesars.
    Some did this for fun.
    A couple would light the body with fire to use as lanterns.

    To deny this is to deny history.

    Do you believe in Jesus? If so, then you must believe that He WAS crucified.

    Crucifixion was a common Roman punishment.

    Good point.

    But I think the O.P. is not speaking about himself.

    Scripture says they took place. It’s historically accurate.
