Deadly Clot 

I think it's funny that I grew up in a Pentacostal background and never once did I actually give a second thought on exactly how Christ died on the cross. I just thought that it was shock, from the beatings, the nails and thorns, and the gravity pulling down his body on the cross that made it difficult for Christ to pull Himself up and get another gulp of breaths.

Apparently, others believed He died due to the loss of blood. Now, researchers say that it was a blood clot in his lungs that caused His death. Reserchers believed that natives of Galilee had a genetic tendency of thrombophilia, a tendency of blood to clot frequently.
