The notion I am trying to convey about Jesus, I get from his experience in the Gethsemani just prior to being arrested. He prayed three times asking the Lord to take away the cup of the cross from him without his having to drink from it. He meant to say that it was not his will. "Thy will be done but not mine." So, what was Jesus' will? He simply could not walk the "Via Dolorosa;" that's all.
It means he went to the cross against his will. Therefore, why preach around that willingly he put down his life for all of us? All am saying is down in Mat. 26:38,39; Mark 14:36; and Luke 22:42.
Last but not least, I wonder why exaggerate what Jesus went through when millions of Jews during the Holocaust suffered worse and longer than just a few hours. Besides, according to Josephus, the Romans crucified thousands of Jews only in the First Century. I hope you don't think that Jesus was the only Jew crucified by the Romans.
