Jesus did NOT die on cross, claims scholar

Jesus may not have died nailed to the cross because there is no evidence that the Romans crucified prisoners two thousand years ago, a scholar has claimed.

The legend of his execution is based on the traditions of the Christian church and artistic illustrations rather than antique texts, according to theologian Gunnar Samuelsson.

He claims the Bible has been misinterpreted as there are no explicit references the use of nails or to crucifixion – only that Jesus bore a ‘staurus’ towards Calvary which is not necessarily a cross but can also mean a ‘pole’. Full story at the Telegraph.

Us Godcheckers are left wondering. Jesus never went near a cross – it was a pole. So how did he die then? Hit over the head with it? Impaled? A terrible pole-vaulting accident?

In case you’re wondering, the scholar in question is a devout Christian. We urge him to complete his research and track down the missing murder weapon before anyone else gets injured.

    It is good that you ‘Godcheckers… are left wondering’, -finally.

    But it does not serve you or anyone else’s purpose to alter Gunnar Samuelsson’s remarks… the issue at hand is not that “Jesus” was ‘crucified on a cross’ versus on a ‘pole’, -there is no textual evidence that “Jesus” was crucified at all. In fact, I will say further that there is no evidence that “Jesus Christ” even lived at all. No Jew or Roman, during Pontius Pilate’s tenure as Perfect of Judaea, ever knew or saw or even heard of “Jesus Christ”… much less write about him. All ‘references’ concerning “Jesus Christ” ‘literally’ appeared many years after the ‘descendant of David and Jewish messiah’ was ‘crucified’… his name might not even have been “Jesus” either. Nothing was written about “[Jesus] Christ” until after Saul of Tarsus’ -aka, the Apostle and eventual Saint Paul’s epiphany or apparition or vision of a ghost of ‘the descendant of David and Jewish messiah’, -thereafter, known to us latter-day people as: “Jesus Christ”.

    I don’t know or understand why you Posted as you did… -except to make fun of the thoughtful theologian Samuelsson.

    You talk of misinterpretation? The Bible is a great read. Personally, I like the pop-up version the best.

    You’ve gotta ask yourself:” Who wrote the Bible?”
    (well, besides “Him!”)
    I don’t know about you,and I don’t care what “you were brought up to believe,” but I simply can’t take any writer who’s middle is STORY too seriously!

    A Scholar is simply someone who passed the exam and has a plaque on the wall.
    A scholar is also a brainwashed idiot!

    Rule of thumb!
    Don’t believe anything, unless you heard it on Oprah or read it in the National Enquirer!

    I’m more on the side that Jesus never existed in the first place.

    Ya gotta love those “historians!”
    Being Old-timers..they’re,no doubt Alcoholics!
    I have it on good authority that the cross was invented just “AFTER” the story was first written.
    The writing implements in those days were pretty crude. (You try writing with a hammer and chisel)
    Anyway, they meant to say that Jesus was “cross” at the guards…etc, etc. but, the story had already been published, so they improvised from there.
    If you don’t believe it, just take into consideration that they’re “STILL” improvising today!

    Just a footnote:
    Considering how long ago this event happened, the picture looks marvelous!
    Anyone know what kind of camera they used in those days?

    (don’t write me off as a jokester!) Humor is just a funny way of being serious!

    But, seriously..
    What concerns me is that you can’t debate what has yet to be proven!
    The Hokey-Pokey….THAT’S what it’s all about!

    I absolutely LOVE this website. And, it continues to prove that 95% of Earths “Higher Intelligence” are in total denial and complete morons.
    Not one word in the “good book” can or ever will be proven. You “fanatics” wanta debate a book?
    George Carlin “Last Words.”
    Anything written by Stephen Hawking!
    I love life and am enjoying the journey. I want peace on Earth, but you humans just won’t leave.

    TOM, GOTTA “ONE UP” YOU! “LIFE is a huge mistake!”
    You want proof? Just look around you!

    Jesus was a nice Jewish boy from Broojlyn who got his ass kicked by a rival gang and has become a martyer for priests putting their junk where it doesn’t belong all in HIS name. Gotta love it
    The most perverse bastardized religion ever
