The death of Jesus for our sins is the heart of the Christian faith. What does a physician have to say about that death? That’s the subject of this important new book, examining the medical evidence from the Biblical texts. Particularly intriguing are the details of the death of Jesus as found in the Old Testament, written hundreds of years before the actual event.

It takes a physician to pronounce a man dead. It takes a student to research how and why a man dies. Mark is both! As a physician of medicine and a student of the Bible, Mark has not only discovered that a man died, he has also learned why He died. The man—Jesus!
The reason—we need a Savior!

In this complete treatment of the crucifixion and the suffering associated with this kind of punishment, Dr. Marinella reminds us of “man’s inhumanity to man” and God’s great love for us to accept this form of death to provide such a great salvation.
