32. That's why it is called faith.
Christians who read the Bible as if it's some sort of history book leave out the strength of the teaching of faith. Was Jesus crucified? Given the brutality that existed and the fact that crucifixion was a reasonably popular punishment, I have no reason to think that he was not.

I have no reason to see Gibson's film because of my faith. I don't need to read the Bible or watch a movie to believe in the teachings of Jesus Christ. Thomas, who it is likely was discredited by John, said that he wanted to stick his finger in the hole in Christ's hand. While I don't believe that Jesus would have loved him any less, he was speaking directly to the glory of faith.
