After Crucifixion

After Crucifixion

We know that during the Crucifixion, Jesus was only on the cross for three to six hours and then taken off. Crucifixion is in fact a very slow, painful death that usually takes 3 days not 3 hours. To speed things along, you can break the legs, thus remove the support and put more pressure on the heart. Both people on either side of Jesus had their legs broken, but Jesus did not, so the question arises of how did he die so quickly? No one examined Jesus’s body to determine death, instead it is stated that a soldier 'pierced his side with his spear, and blood and water gushed out'. (John 19:34) Now how is that a sign to prove death? It proves the opposite. The heart pumps the blood around the body, when the heart stops, so does the pumping action. So what should have happened is a small amount of blood should have trickled out if he was dead, but if he was still alive, only then would blood gush out.
His body was taken to a very spacious tomb and then treated with a hundred weight of aloe - a healing agent of the time. Why was there a need of such a huge amount? We then see that the stone slab covering the tomb had to be removed. If Jesus was dead, then why did he need to get his physical body out of the tomb?

We then see that Jesus disguised himself as a gardener and travelled in secret to meet his disciples, why? What should have happened is that Jesus should have gone to the Jews and openly taunts them that you tried to kill me, but God saved me and I am now on the right hand side of God etc, but instead we see Jesus appearing to be scared of the Jews, afraid of being caught, why? Unless he was really alive, and knew that if he gets caught, then the Jews would put him back on the cross.

People started talking about Jesus rising, and we hear about the doubting Thomas. Thomas thought that he was a ghost and so Jesus met him as said

Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see, for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as you see me have
Luke 24:39

So Jesus put his mind to rest and asked him to handle him and find out that he was not really dead, he was not a ghost, instead, he was alive, just like ThomasTo further this point, Jesus then went and ate 'broiled fish and honeycomb' (Luke 24:42-43) with them.

After some time, he recovered and then went up the mountain, but instead of rising to Heaven, he went over the other side and went in search of the lost sheep of the house of Israel, who unlike the Jews in Israel, these Jews accepted and welcomed him.
  
So this is how we understand what really happened. Of course, if this is correct, then as St Paul said "If the Christ be not risen (from the Dead) then our preaching is in vain and your faith also vain" (I Corinthians 15:14).
In other words, all the Christian teachings of resurrection, redemption, salvation etc. are based on Jesus dying on the cross. But these are all teachings which were introduced by St. Paul, and not Jesus. These are not Jewish teachings, which Jesus taught.

If Jesus did not die upon the cross: A study in evidence

The Last Supper This is a small booklet with a very descriptive title, written by an Australian Judge, Ernest Brougham Docker, in 1920. He became a judge of the District Court and chairman of Quarter Sessions for the north-western district in 1881. He retired in 1918 after the passage of the Judges Retirement Act.
He examines the limitations in the so called testimony of the apostles about resurrection in his book. He makes several strong points against resurrection of Jesus, may peace be on him, but one that can be described in a few lines is quoted here:
“He (Jesus) expressed his forebodings to His disciples, I firmly believe; I am equally convinced that He did not predict His rising again. The Conduct of the disciples after crucifixion shows that they had no expectation of a resurrection; and it is altogether incredible that they could have forgotten a prediction so remarkable.”
There are 14 parts of this short booklet by Ernest Brougham Docker, published in 1920. The fifth part concl…

WHY JESUS DID NOT DIE ON THE CROSS

“The standard explanations for the crucifixion of Jesus created a deep mystery of motive and consequence, raising many questions about what truly is God’s plan for our salvation.”
The crucifixion of Jesus Christ (peace be upon him) is undeniably one of the most emotionally charged and controversial events in all of religious history. It is also one of the most powerful and political, in that it laid the foundation for Christianity’s main principle of mankind’s spiritual salvation – that Jesus Christ was destined by God to die on the cross for our sins. But is this really God’s or even Jesus’ idea? The facts about what happened to Jesus 2000 years ago have been shrouded in mystery for as long as Christianity has existed as a major world religion. The commonly held views of the events of the crucifixion and the life and purpose of Jesus are well known to virtually every Christian and most others who have come in contact with Western Christian nations. But is this view, in fact, the truth? O…
