Did Jesus Did On The Cross
Did He? Maybe AND Maybe not.
Lets do some investigating.
First we find that while on the cross someone went up to Jesus and gave him something to drink. It is possible that there may have been something in the drink to knock Jesus out so it appeared he was dead, and then he could be taken down. I know…BUT…it is a possibility.
Once Jesus is supposedly dead, Joseph asks Pilate for the body. The question is, why was Pilate so surprised that Jesus was already dead? So surprised, he had to verify it. So then it is a possibly that Jesus was not dead, just appearing dead.
AND in order for Jesus to die in 3 to 6 hours, his legs would have had to be been broken…and they were not.
Now it gets a little weird. Later that night Nicodemus brings a a large bag with a mixture of Myrrh and Aloes to the tomb. Now it seems that Joseph may have stayed with Jesus all day, for it doesn’t say he came back with Nicodemus, but was already there. AND, why did he have to wait until night? Was it so that he would not be seen? Why else.
AND, why didn’t Joseph already have the Myrrh and Aloe waiting in the tomb? Could it have been because he believed Jesus would be dead when he was brought to the tomb?
Myrrh is used as an antiseptic and for helping in preventing inflammation and anti bacterial use. It was used to clean wounds and to prevent infection. And Aloe is also used to heal wounds and is known for its anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. Is that why it was brought to the tomb…to help heal the wounds?
So it is possible that when they took Jesus body to the tomb, they discovered he was not dead? And since they didn’t want anyone else to know…they waited for late night to take the Aloe and Myrrh to see if they could keep Jesus alive?
KEEP JESUS ALIVE? Did they use the Myrrh and Aloe to help Jesus….BECAUSE as far as I could find…there was no embalming used in Israel 2000 years ago. Yes Egyptians and others embalmed their dead, but not the Jewish people.
Something to at least think about.
The first written account of the death of Jesus was written 12-30 years after he died.
The account of the death of Jesus was then translated into many other languages, and you can be sure each time it was translated, it would be changed. Changed by how the Scribe doing the translating believed it was to read. So think, with so many years of oral stories long before they were written, how they too must have been altered.
So the truth is…we do NOT KNOW THE TRUTH…we only know what we have been programed by the religions to believe. Sad, but true.
After completing the above, I went in search of a video and was really SURPRISED to find one that was all most identical to what I had found in my investigation.
On the video at first I thought it was Islam, but everything in this video is taken from our Bible…
