Was Jesus beat 39 or 40 lashes?
Is there a thing somewhere in Roman lore that a prisoner is only given 39 lashes instead of 40 being one short of an inch of their life?

Moses Law refers to flogging. The law itself means forty lashes less one or 39 lashes. The term was meant to be a biblical one in that 40 lashes are what was determined enough to kill a man according to the Old Testament and thus 39 lashes was the most you give a man without declaring a penalty of death.

Well 39 of course, because 13 x 3 = 39. It's an Occult thing.

But don't worry, it was JUST story, just like all the other times it's been told thousands of years prior to the Jesus rendition.

The forty lashes less one was a Hebrew law. The Romans had no such limitations. A Roman scourging in advance of a prisoner's crucifixion was intended to inflict extreme damage. No one knows the number of lashes our Lord endured during his scourging, but Jesus died more quickly than a typical crucifixion (which could sometimes last several days). This could well have been due to excessive torture He endured during His scourging. He likely received a number of lashes well in excess of forty.

In His grace.

I think the intention was for Him to die probably during the lashing and the body disposed of
According to forensic evidence based on the lashinbgs shown on the shroud..this is exactly what should have happened to any normal human being..

"Thou shalt not kill" does not apply to murder of one's own kind only, but to all living beings; and this Commandment was inscribed in the human breast long before it was proclaimed from Sinai. ~Leo Tolstoy


You have heard that it was said, "You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy."
But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven; for He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.
For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have?

Re: Was Jesus beat 39 or 40 lashes?
I was taught growing up that it was called "40 lashes" but the whipper only administered 39, because if he went over, he got lashed himself.

Kinda like how a "baker's dozen" is 13, because they used to throw in one extra to make sure it wasn't short.

Besides, it's in the movie:

The Bible doesn't say how many lashes (or "stripes") He got, but Paul mentions it for himself in II Corinthians 11:24...

"Of the jewish people five times received I forty stripes save one."

Because thats all it is... A story.
Gun control is like trying to reduce drunk driving by making it tougher for sober people to own cars.

I'd like to go quietly in my sleep, like grandpa did. Not screaming in terror like the people in the back seat of the car he was driving.
