The Crucifixion of Jesus

A Medical Doctor Examines the Death and Resurrection of Christ


This ground-breaking work offers a unique apologetical argument for the validity of the Gospel accounts of Jesus’ death and resurrection.  Dr. Bergeron’s medical expertise allows him to examine the medical aspects of Jesus’ death and as well as the “hallucination hypothesis” which attempts to discount Jesus’ resurrection.

This book explores the following areas:

  Jesus’ claim to be the Son of God and the Messiah of Hebrew prophetic literature 

  Evidence of the trustworthiness of the Gospels as reliable eyewitness testimony

  The social and political context leading up to Jesus’ execution

  Roman crucifixion practices in public executions

  Physiological mechanisms that ultimately led to Jesus’ death

  A medical analysis of hallucination hypotheses for the disciples’ belief in Jesus’ resurrection and the inability of hallucination to explain away the biblical accounts of Jesus’ resurrection.
