How Many Lashes Did Jesus Take?


The Bible does not specifically state how many lashes Jesus did take, but based on common practice at the time many historians believe he received 39 lashes or 'stripes'. The maximum amount of lashes allowed in Jewish law was 40, and they were careful to not exceed this amount. Some historians believe that he was only lashed thirteen times, using a whip with 3 ropes (3x13 = 39).
