Pierced – Come and See – part 26
If Jesus were not dead, I can only imagine that at the piercing of His side there would have been some sign of pain. The spear went in deep enough to pierce the pericardium, which is the fluid filled sack around the heart, that’s pretty deep, there would have been excruciating pain. This is John’s confirmation that Jesus was indeed dead.
