Perhaps this verse will answer your question taken from Matthew 27:42 He saved others; himself he cannot save. If he be the King of Israel, let him now come down from the cross, and we will believe him.AnswerJesus died on a cross. The confusion arises from the 'stauros' which is the Greek for both cross and stake. However, the common usage of 'stauros' means 'cross'; if a stake is specified then the Greek would always be 'monos stauros' or 'simple cross' to distnguish between the two. Nowhere in scripture is this term used.Romans invariably used cross or T-shaped structures for crucifixion, onl rarely using a stake. Archaeology has confirmed that the cross-shape was the preferred method in Jerusalem for execution after the remains of crucified victims were discovered recently in a tomb near Jerusalem..In addition to this, accounts of the crucifixion suggest strongly a cross shape - as Jesus carried the crossbar to the place of execution, a sign outlining his 'crime' was placed above him on the cross, and a drink lifted up on a reed. Other references by Paul and others all point to a Cross and not a stake.Finally the early Church members all remember Christ being crucified on a cross, and grafitti in the Roman catacombs of the late first and early 2nd century all confirm that Jesus was crucified on a cross.There are some groups - notably the Jehovah's Witnesses - who insist that Jesus was executed oon a stake, but their evidence is very flimsy compared wth the wealth of evidence, historical, scriptural and archaeological that confirm Jesus being executed on a cross.
