Then again how long was Jesus up on the cross for?

A few hours wasn`t it?

And yet crucifiction was a supposedly agonising death that took several days...

And didn`t he allegedly crawl up the curtain immediately after they held a sponge with vinegar on it under his nose? Something that should have revived him?

I think there are enough ambiguities surrounding his putative death to make any discussion on his rising from the grave highly speculative...

Me I reckon that the fix was in....

1)You are missing the point crucifixion is a process that kills the crucifixee in an agonising manner over several days...

Jesus lasted only a couple of hours...

Alarm bell one...

Jesus shuffled off this mortal coil immediately after they held a vinegar soaked sponge under his nose which should have revived him...

Alarm bell two...

You see what I`m getting at yet?

2)He certainly did otherwise he could hardly rise from his grave...

To paraphrase Cleese...

"'E's not pinin'! 'E's passed on! This prophet is no more! He has ceased to be! 'E's expired and gone to meet 'is father! 'E's a stiff! Bereft of life, 'e rests in peace! If you hadn't nailed 'im to that cross 'e'd be pushing up the daisies! 'Is metabolic processes are now 'istory! 'E's off the twig! 'E's kicked the bucket, 'e's shuffled off 'is mortal coil, crawled up the curtain and joined the bleedin' choir invisibile!! THIS IS AN EX-MESSIAH!!!!!!"

Geddit?

3)Really?

And there was I thinking that they were written after the fact....

Have a peek at this and tell me if you honestly think M, M, L + J were sitting around the bottom of the cross scribbling notes down frantically....
