Related words: crucify, hang, tree, wood

Note:  The NASB Strong’s Concordance indicates that there are 48 verses in which some form of the word “crucify” (crucify, crucified, crucifixion) appears.  I have not included any of them in this list, unless the verse also contains the word “cross.”

An asterisk at the beginning of the citation indicates an allusion to the cross rather than an explicit mention of it.  I have considered references to “tree” or “wood” as explicit references to “cross.”
