    It is widely believed in Christendom that Jesus Christ was killed on a cross. However, the Greek word 'stauros', which is normally translated 'cross' in English Bibles, really means a stake or pole. Indeed, the crucifix symbol probably has pagan origins. It is fitting that Christ died with hands and arms lifted up above his head, rather than spread out in a crucifix form, seeing that uplifted hands is a symbol of God's promises being confirmed (Eze. 20:5,6,15; 36:7; 47:14), as well as intense prayer (Lam. 2:19; 1 Tim. 2:8; 2 Chron. 6:12,13; Ps. 28:2), which Christ was engaged in on the cross (Heb. 5:7). He said that as the bronze serpent was lifted up on a polewhen Israel were in the wilderness, so he would be publicly lifted up in his time of dying; thus he associated the 'cross' with the pole (John 3:14).

    The so called "Christadelphians" are heretics, they aren't even really Christians.

    But Romans did execute by crucifixion, and it was done on a cross.

    You missed the main message of the cross.
    jesus wanted others to follow him to the cross. But we know no one did and therefore no one was worthy of Jesus.

    Matthew 10:38 and anyone who does not take up his cross and follow Me is not worthy of Me. 

    jesus didn't die for anyone's sin. Jesus wanted everyone to follow him with their cross and die with him. But we know no one did and therefore no one was worthy of Jesus.

    Yeah, and the one who wasn't killed was still BOILED ALIVE.

    The only ones to follow Jesus were two thieves who were crucified with him. One of them went to paradise with Jesus. Promise made, promise kept.
    No one else followed Jesus with their cross. Therefore no one was worthy of Jesus. Read your Bble!!

    Matthew 10:38 and anyone who does not take up his cross and follow Me is not worthy of Me.

    An interesting reference to a cross occurring at a point in the story months or years ahead of Jesus' crucifixion.  I wonder what the apostles would have made of 'take up his cross' at the time.

    It is understood that a lot of the things that Jesus said likely did not completely register until after Jesus was crucified, even up until pentecost.
