How heavy was the cross?

I was wondering how heavy the cross was…and how far did Jesus carry it???


The crossbeam weighed approximately 125 pounds, while the complete cross may have weighed about 325 pounds, much too heavy for a man to carry.

This is not the 1st time that I’ve read that our Lord may have carried only the crossbar.
