This is one of the facts that stand out from scripture about the crucifixion of our Blessed Lord.
JOHN 19: 31-37 (NRSV)
31 Since it
was the day of Preparation, the Jews did not want the bodies left on
the cross during the sabbath, especially because that sabbath was a day
of great solemnity. So they asked Pilate to have the legs of the
crucified men broken and the bodies removed. 32 Then the soldiers came and broke the legs of the first and of the other who had been crucified with him. 33 But when they came to Jesus and saw that he was already dead, they did not break his legs. 34 Instead, one of the soldiers pierced his side with a spear, and at once blood and water came out. 35 (He who saw this has testified so that you also may believe. His testimony is true, and he knows[g] that he tells the truth.) 36 These things occurred so that the scripture might be fulfilled, “None of his bones shall be broken.” 37 And again another passage of scripture says, “They will look on the one whom they have pierced.”
My question is: Which side of Christ's body was pierced? It's a fair question, but do we know for sure? Here's some food for thought.
