Joseph W. Bergeron, M.D. is a specialist in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. Decades of practice experience treating musculoskeletal injury and impairment lead to his interest in the crucifixion of Jesus and the physiological mechanism of his death. Dr. Bergeron’s book, The Crucifixion of Jesus: A Medical Doctor Examines the Death and Resurrection of Christ provides detailed discussion about the conspiracy to kill Jesus, the historical context, the politics, archeological evidence, Roman crucifixion practices, and Jesus's cause of death.  Dr. Bergeron also provides analysis of hallucination hypotheses that seek to explain away the disciple's belief in Jesus' resurrection.  Dr. Bergeron's detailed descriptions and analysis offer fresh insight to understanding of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Dr. Bergeron speaks in churches, conferences, and universities on the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
