What size nails were used to crucify Jesus?

We do not know what size the nails were that held Jesus to the cross. These nail would have been hand forged as they did not have that type of manufacturing in that time. They would have had to be big enough to hold a man to a cross with a good sized head so that the hand/wrist would not slide off the end. I doubt that they would have been as big around as a railroad spike, but they would have been as long.

How much did the cross weigh that Jesus carried to Calvary?

The cross that Jesus carried was the cross beam that had a mortise in it that was fit with a tenon when raised up. It was probably 12 inches by 12 inches and 8 feet long. That would weigh about 50 pounds.AnswerWhile we can guess, as above, we do not really know the type of wood - the Bible concentrates on what Jesus did for us on the cross, not on the cross itself. Obviously it was relatively heavy, since Jesus weakened through sleep deprivation, His whipping and other maltreatment, could not carry it.
