    No where. Jesus and the two thiefs were right side up.
  • Jim E Scott - in Reply on Genesis 1:6
    Peter was crucified upside down. He was crucified many years later in Rome.

    Where did they put Jesus while the were preparing the hole for the Cross ???

    He was on the ground, nailed to the cross, face pointed at the clouds.

    Don't yell at me thank u very much :)

    The Bible gives no records of a hole, who dug it, or how. The hole wasn't important

    If I'm understanding you correctly, the thieves that hung on their crosses at each side of Jesus, were hung & nailed in the 'proper manner', so to speak. There's no indication that their crucifixion was any different to the others. There is a tradition however, that the Apostle Peter was crucified upside down at his request, so that his crucifixion would not resemble his Lord's. But that is only tradition & not found in Scripture.

    In John 21:18, Jesus told Peter, "Verily, verily, I say unto thee, When thou wast young, thou girdedst thyself, and walkedst whither thou wouldest: but when thou shalt be old, thou shalt stretch forth thy hands, and another shall gird thee, and carry thee whither thou wouldest not". Some have understood Jesus' prophecy of Peter that one day he would be taken as a prisoner & eventually crucified. We can't be certain that is what is meant. Whatever the case, it is of praise to the Lord that all His servants, the apostles, were willing to lay down their lives for Jesus, as Jesus had done for them. That should be cause of much searching of our own hearts in our love & commitment to our wonderful Saviour.
