Did Jesus Really Die on the Cross?
Transcript of Did Jesus Really Die on the Cross?
"For what the Law could not do, weak as it was through the flesh, God did: sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and as an offering for sin, He condemned sin in the flesh. in order that the requirement of the Law might be fulfilled in us, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit." Did Jesus Really Die
on the Cross? Mark 15:39 and when the centurion, who stood there in front of Jesus, saw how he died, he said, “Surely this man was the Son of God!”
Matt. 27:50 "Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost."
Mark 15:37 "And Jesus cried with a loud voice, and gave up the ghost."
Luke 23:46 "And when Jesus had cried with a loud voice, he said, Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit: and having said thus, he gave up the ghost."
John 19:30 "When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost. Extra-Biblical References Other Possible Explanations continue.. Gospels Biblical References “God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.” By Pang, Yelly, Praise, and Kitty There are two main versions of this theory, both stating that Jesus had a twin brother. In one version the twin dies on the cross instead of Jesus, whereas in the other version the twin appears as an impostor after the death of Jesus. Advocates of these ideas claim to find supporting evidence in certain names which can be translated as "twin". But both versions of the theory are obviously somewhat improbable, and it has few supporters. Works Cited Information Biblical References Y0L000000 Did Jesus really die on the cross? Non-Gospel 2 Corinthians 5:21 John 19:38-40 38 Later, Joseph of Arimathea asked Pilate for the body of Jesus. Now Joseph was a disciple of Jesus, but secretly because he feared the Jewish leaders.With Pilate’s permission, he came and took the body away. 39 He was accompanied by Nicodemus,the man who earlier had visited Jesus at night. Nicodemus brought a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about seventy-five pounds. 40 Taking Jesus’ body, the two of them wrapped it, with the spices, in strips of linen. This was in accordance with Jewish burial customs.
This, above, is another reference that relates to Jesus’s death. Nicodemus and Joseph came to take Jesus’s body away from the cross to the tomb. The cartoon to the right is Nicodemus and the picture below is Joseph. Twin Theory .
Continued... Some early opponents of Christianity claimed that the followers of Jesus secretly stole his body from the tomb and then invented the whole story of the resurrection. In the gospel of Matthew, it mentions this accusation but disproves it. This accusation may have been the reason the Romans enacted a new ordinance known as the Edict of Caesar, which is engraved on a marble slab found in Galilee. It prescribes the death penalty for anyone convicted of unlawfully removing a body from a tomb. It is possible that this law was enacted because of accusations against the followers of Jesus. Stolen Body Theory Some believed that the death on the cross was induced by a drug. Experiments have shown that a plant-derived drug called Reserpine can put mice into a temporary death-like state for several days. This might very well have the same effect on a human being. In Hugh J. Schonfield’s book The Passover Plot, a detailed account of this theory is given. The author argues that a death-simulation drug was given to Jesus as part of a plot to allow him to survive the crucifixion. Although such a scenario is possible, this theory is usually rejected on the grounds that it is too complex and involves too much conjecture.

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-chat/2485615/posts People who were related to Jesus's death on the cross include: Mathew, Mark, Luke, John, Nicodemus, and Joseph of Arimathea. 1 Peter 2:24 Romans. 8:3-4 There are many theories of the crucifixion of Jesus, one of them being: "No historically reliable source outside the Bible verifies the account of Scripture." In short, it is clearly reasonable that Jesus did die on the cross on the basis of the evidence of both the biblical and non-biblical accounts that proves that the crucifixion did actually happen. Evidences like the writings of Lucian of Samosata, where he said that "Christ was the man who was crucified in Palestine." The story of Nicodemus carrying Jesus in John 19:38-40 also makes the story more realistic and reasonable.Thus, Jesus must have died on the cross. This can now be proved wrong due to the accounts of
NON-biblical people that were alive
during this time to either hear or see for
themselves or from others. Lucian of Samosata A Greek Satirist that lived during the 2nd century AD, and in his works is recorded, "The Christians, you know, worship a man to this day--the distinguished personage who introduced their novel rites, and was crucified on that account...Christ was the man who was crucified in Palestine." Thallus He wrote a history of Eastern Mediterranean. His writings are only found as citations discovered by others. An example of this is Julius Africanus (wrote about AD221), who quoted him, "the whole world there pressed a most fearful darkness; and the rocks were rent by an earthquake, and many places in Judea and other districts were thrown down." He then concluded what Thallus had wrote saying, "The oddity is that Jesus' crucifixion occurred at the Passover which was a full moon. It is not possible for a solar eclipse to occur at a full moon. So, the event had to be a supernatural event. Cornelius Tacitus A Roman historian, also known as the greatest historian of ancient Rome. He wrote, ""Christus, from whom the name had its origin, suffered the extreme penalty during the reign of Tiberius at the hands of one of our procurators, Pontius Pilatus, and a most mischievous superstition, thus checked for the moment, again broke out not only in Judea, the first source of the evil, but even in Rome, where all things hideous and shameful from every part of the world find their centre and become popular." Flavius Josephus He was a Jewish historian which wrote, "bout this time there lived Jesus, a wise man, if indeed one ought to call him a man. For he was one who performed surprising deeds and was a teacher of such people as accept the truth gladly. He won over many Jews and many of the Greeks. He was the Messiah. And when, upon the accusation of the principal men among us, Pilate had condemned him to a cross, those who had first come to love him did not cease. He appeared to them spending a third day restored to life, for the prophets of God had foretold these things and a thousand other marvels about him. And the tribe of the Christians, so called after him, has still to this day not disappeared.
