Jesus Did Not Die On The Cross – Biblical Scholars Claim
By Sean Martin
Jesus did NOT die on the cross but fainted and was RESUSCITATED, experts say.
The theory known as the Swoon Hypothesis suggests that Christ did not die on the cross, but simply fainted. The Swoon Hypothesis began to gain traction as far back as the 1700s, when historians first began questioning religion and looked for logical answers. Biblical scholar Karl Friedrich Bahrdt first established the theory in 1790, when he claimed that Jesus potentially faked his own death. However, as medical knowledge improved over the past centuries, some experts have begun to theorise that he collapsed on the cross due to fatigue and was later revived.
In a blog titled Review of Religions, Dr Muhammad Masudul Hasan Nuri, of the Tahir Heart Institute, explains how it is possible that Jesus survived the crucifixion. Dr Nuri first points to the average length of stay on the crucifix before death – which was three days some 2,000 years ago. Jesus, however, only reportedly lasted six hours.
Dr Nuri said: “At Golgotha, the crucifixion site, after twelve noon that Friday, Jesus Christ cried out in a loud voice, bowed his head, and swooned. “The soldiers broke the leg of the two thieves, but not that of Jesus Christ, as they mistook his being in a state of swoon for being dead. “Instead, one of the soldiers pierced his chest, with an infantry spear, most probably into the pericardial cavity, producing a sudden flow of blood and water.”
The Bible then says that Jesus’s body was handed to Joseph of Arimathea – one of Christ’s disciples – who was with his companion Nicodemus, a well respected physicist, who knew that Jesus was alive. According to Dr Nuri, Nicodemus would have made no attempt to heal the wound, despite knowing Jesus had survived, because “the flow of blood and water was helpful to respiration and beneficial in the renewing of life”.
