Why Crucifixion?
#1
Granted Jesus had to die for the sins of the world, and His blood spilled to cover up the doorpost of our heart, but couldn't He have died using the method that the priests usually used with the unblemished sacrificial lamb, such as a cut to the throat?  Why the humiliation of the cross?

For one, the Pharisees didn't like Jesus; two, they wanted to curry Roman favor to restore Jerusalem; and, three, the neckbone could've easily been broken.

Simply because that is the way the Romans executed Jews.
Thousands of Jews were killed that way; Jesus was no
exception.

Jesus couldn't have had His neck broken, for it is written, "not one of His bones shall be broken" (John 19:36) referring to Exodus 12:46.

That makes sense that Jesus died a common death to relate to mankind as a whole.

Anti-goyism and anti-Christianity on your part again, huh, Chava? gentiles were also crucified; and Jesus was an exception on both the Christian side and (in your actual view) the Talmudic side. (Be honest about why Talmudics think that Jesus was crucified.)

Through Jesus prophesy must be fulfilled; horrific Roman scourging and crucifixion fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah,  "But many were amazed when they saw him. His face was so disfigured he seemed hardly human, and from his appearance, one would scarcely know he was a man. {Isaiah 52:14 NLT) Or as the Amplified Bible renders the same passage, "For many the Servant of God became an object of horror; many were astonished at Him.] His face and His whole appearance were marred more than any man's, and His form beyond that of the sons of men--but just as many were astonished at Him..."

Well, if they cut His throat, it could've been. That's why the crucifixion happened.

Why do Talmudics think that Jesus was crucified?

Well, I am not a "Talmudic" but I am a Jew  Smile

Why was Jesus crucified? Same reason as thousands
of other Jews were....the Romans hated Jews and
had political reasons for killing them.
He may have been seen as a threat to the Romans
somehow; so they eliminated him.

As an aside, the Jewish concept of the messiah
does not include personal salvation.....he does
not come to die for our sins.
