Unicode vs. the Jehovah’s Witnesses: Evidence that Jesus Died on a Cross

On my drive to work Tuesday morning I relay some evidence that Jesus died on a cross structure. Jehovah’s Witnesses claim that Jesus died only on a pole with no cross beam.

My brother John and I were recently interviewed on The Quest For Truth with Keith Heltsley to talk about our recent book When the Watchtower Knocks: Discussing an Encounter With Jehovah’s Witnesses. I am giving much of the same information about the cross as I presented in the interview.

What I mention extra in this episode is the unicode character set on many computers! Certain Coptic characters tell us Jesus died on a cross, not just a “torture stake.”
