Does anyone knows where this cross originates it seem pretty old.
it said on one side Jesus of Nazarenus Rex Judaeorum.
The other side saids, Behold this Heart , Father forgive them,so which they Love men. What trowing me off is the design is so different.
Any help would be appreciated.

    I think this type of crucifix is called "The Pardon Crucifix".

    In 1905 Pope St. Pius X granted the following indulgences based on it:

    1. Whoever carries on his person the Pardon Crucifix, may thereby gain an indulgence.

    2. For devoutly kissing the Crucifix, an indulgence is gained.

    3. Whoever says one of the following invocations before this crucifix may gain each time an indulgence: "Our Father who art in heaven, forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us." "I beg the Blessed Virgin Mary to pray to the Lord our God for me."

    4. Whoever, habitually devout to this Crucifix, will fulfill the necessary conditions of Confession and Holy Communion, may gain a Plenary Indulgence on the following feasts: On the feasts of the Five Wounds of our Lord, the Invention of the Holy Cross, the Exaltation of the Holy Cross, the Immaculate Conception, and the Seven Sorrows (Dolors) of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

    5. Whoever, at the moment of death, fortified with the Sacraments of the Church, or contrite of heart, in the supposition of being unable to receive them, will kiss this Crucifix and ask pardon of God for his sins, and pardon his neighbor, will gain a Plenary Indulgence.


    Definition of Indulgence

    The word indulgence originally meant kindness or favor. In Latin it meant the remission of a tax or debt. Under Roman law it was used to express release from captivity or punishment. In this instance, an indulgence is given to remit the temporal punishment of sin that has been forgiven.

    These indulgences have been declared upon the Pardon Crucifix by Pope St. Pius X in 1905, and have been approved in the pardon of the living and the souls in Purgatory in 1907. The lengths of the indulgences were repealed in the new Enchiridion, and the indulgences were granted to remit the guilt of the sin committed.

    This cross had great, wide appeal.
    You can still but versions of it.
    It has an interesting aspect that it mentions the Jews.
    As AR8JAson points out "Rex Judaeorum".
    The Pope in 1905 was concerned about the anti-Semitic feelings that had created the Dreyfus Affair in France. Dreyfus was finally exonerated in 1906. But the affair had raged on since 1899. It had split European society. The Pardon Crucifix is linked to two French brothers who had converted from Judaism to Christianity. Even more so they had become Carmelite priests and Catholic authors of note: Frs. Joseph and Augustine Lémann ( formerly Lehmann). It's thought that they "discovered" this cross and linked it to their conversion to Christianity. They were the authors of about 150 works that linked the Catholic faith to Judaism and the spiritual destiny of the Jewish people.
    Timing is everything.
    In 1904 there was a Marion Congress in Rome.
    The Cardinal of Lyon promoted the Pardon Cross of the Lémann brothers and it was taken on board by Pope Pius X. It was a way of uniting all sides, I suppose.

    The indulgences promised a certain number of days off punishment in Purgatory:
    1. Whoever carries on his person the Pardon Crucifix may thereby ?gain 300 DAYs INDULGENCE once a day.??
    2. For Devoutly kissing the Crucifix, 100 DAYs each time.??
    3. Whoever says one of the following invocations before this Crucifix ?may gain each time an indulgence of SEVEN YEARS AND SEVEN ?QUARANTINES: "Our father who art in heaven, forgive us our ?trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us". "I beg the ?Blessed Virgin Mary to pray to the Lord our God for me."??
    (A Quarantine = 40 days)
    4. Whoever, habitually devout to this Crucifix, will fulfill the necessary ?conditions of Confession and Holy Communion, may gain a ?PLENARY INDULGENCE on the following feasts: the Five Wounds of ?Our Lord, the Invention of the Holy Cross, the Exaltation of the Holy ?Cross, the Immaculate Conception and the Seven Dolors of the ?Blessed Virgin.??
    5. Whoever at the moment of death, fortified with the Sacraments of ?the Church, or contrite of heart, in the supposition of being unable to ?receive them, will kiss this Crucifix and ask pardon of God for his ?sins, and pardon his neighbor, will gain a PLENARY INDULGENCE.

    Of course some but not all of this became redundant when Vatican II changed the notion of punishment for sins in Purgatory and release being conceived in terms of "DAYS".

    But it seems that the promises of points four and five still hold.
