On Easter Sunday, observed this year on April 16, Christians around the globe will celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Gardner-Webb University Instructor of Biology Jay Zimmer believes that medical science can offer a revealing perspective into aspects of Christ’s suffering that aren’t typically pondered by believers. “In the Protestant faith, we often don’t spend much time really delving into the immense suffering Jesus endured. I think we would much rather gloss over it,” Zimmer reflected.
