Crucifixion Of Jesus Christ
Is it thrown away so the next victim can use his own cross? Or dug up and taken back for the next victim to carry back up? No: as in the picture, it is a permanent.
See in the picture where the executioner is removing nails from a previous victim to make the cross available for the next. When I asked Terry Gilliam why he did something so subversive, he just said it was probably his morbid senses. But clearly it was also just so logical. Why does this totally undermine the story in the Bible? Because, surely the purpose of Crucifixion is to put the body on show, as a deterrent, as long as possible. Upright like a banner, struggling with pain, degraded and dehumanized, till it rotted.
Are they joking? They make a cross for a man, he carries it to Golgotha, they nail him up, and after a few hours he drops dead and Pilate says: "Okay, you can take him down now.
Jesus Wasn't Crucified on Friday or Resurrected on Sunday: How long was Jesus in the tomb?
What an absurd amount of effort and time, not to mention a ridiculous use of a valuable tree, to kill a man. Cheeky, the guy crucified next to Brian is revealing.

Look at this from the Jewish historian Josephus, writing at the time: "Varus sent his army into the country, to seek out the authors of the revolt; he punished those that were most guilty: the number who were crucified on this account were two thousand.
How can these numbers possibly be? Where are all these trees coming from, not to mention the tons of nails 6,? The answer strangely is just a matter of translation. The word we always translate as crucifix, stauros does not actually mean crucifix at all. In classical Greek, until the early 4th century BC, stauros meant an upright stake, pole, or which might be used in impaling.
In the literature of that time it never means two pieces of timber placed across one another at any angle, but always one piece alone. So there is no reason to believe Jesus was on a cross at all, nor that the in the revolt were. In fact, it would almost be impossible. A man immerses himself in an ice hole in the Sea of Japan during celebrations for Russian Orthodox Epiphany in Vladivostok. The most subversive scene in Life of Brian is the first one we actually shot, which in context totally undermines the Bible story.
