Q: First of all, as a new believer, I want to tell you how helpful and wonderful Dr. Fruchtenbaum's book “The Footsteps of the Messiah” has been to me. I have learned very much. I have a question about the Apostle Peter. Was he really hung upside down on the cross or was he hung on the cross as was Jesus only with his head down?

A: Yes, Peter was crucified in an upside down position, per his own request as explained in 1 Clement 5:1-6:1 and alluded to in John 21:18-19.
