I’m debating this atheist over Jesus burial .
Was Jesus convicted of high treason under Roman law ?
If so doesn’t the Roman law not allow proper burial under this conviction . I’m a bit stumped .can someone help
Here is the digesta
But what of the Roman practice of leaving bodies on the cross to rot? Although it was common practice, there were exceptions. Consider the following exceptions from the summary of Roman law known as the Digesta:
The bodies of those who are condemned to death should not be refused their relatives; and the Divine Augustus, in the Tenth Book of his Life, said that this rule had been observed. At present, the bodies of those who have been punished are only buried when this has been requested and permission granted; and sometimes it is not permitted, especially where persons have been convicted of high treason (48.24.1).
