Yeah... I think I saw that!
The whole crucifixion story is very hard to prove on several counts!
John 20:27 (KJV) Then saith he* (*Jesus speaking in flawless King James English) to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and THRUST IT INTO MY SIDE: and be not faithless, but believing* (*IN HIS “RESURRECTED BODY” Jesus Christ was full of gapping holes the size of a finger in his hands and of a whole fist in his right side, not just a little scratch like they show in the “Crucifix” images!)
The Roman soldier left a BIG GAPPING HOLE in the right side of his body for Saint Thomas to “THRUST HIS HAND INSIDE” so he can believe with the rest of the Christians! They get a terrific turn on about it every time an unbeliever gets converted because of the holes in Jesus body!
The Bible writers were delighted to explain that Jesus Christ’s flesh was beaten to a pulp thoroughly tenderized, heavily marinated in Roman soldiers’ spit and crucified as the “spotless Lamb of God” in fulfillment of Bible prophecies, especially the one given in the Book of Job.
Job 17:6 (NIV) God has made me a byword to everyone, A MAN IN WHOSE FACE PEOPLE SPIT.
Matthew 26:67 (NIV) Then they SPIT IN HIS FACE and struck him with their fists. Others slapped him.
Matthew 27:30 (NIV) They SPIT ON HIM, and took the staff* (*even at 33 years of age Jesus had to use a hooked staff to walk around leading the “sheep” that Christians today deep throat like a charm!) and struck him on the head again and again.
Mark 14:65 (NIV) Then some began to SPIT AT HIM; they blindfolded him, struck him with their fists, and said, "Prophesy!" And the guards took him and beat him.
Mark 15:19a (NIV) Again and again they struck him on the head with a staff and SPIT ON HIM.
That’s about a US Gallon of ROMAN SPIT not Jewish! I believe that Mel Gibson skipped the spit part in his passion of the Christ flick! Please correct me if I’m wrong and I promise to see the movie again.
There is no historical record that the Roman soldiers ever dressed any of their victim’s genital area in a white diaper before nailing them to any cross no matter how holy! There is hardly any evidence that the Romans crucified anybody in Jerusalem in fancy crosses that can’t possibly hold anybody hanging in there nailed by the hands. The Romans were better known to IMPALE their victims driving a thick pole into their victim’s rectum and forcing them to stand on it without any foot rest until the pole would eventually pierce the heart or lungs killing them by their own body weight! The thicker the pole, the longer it took for the victim to die. Jesus hardly suffered a sissy’s death placidly hanging in there (John 20:25-27). Christians are brainwashed to believe that crucifixion is about the most tormenting death ever invented to appease a Holy Wrathful God! Not so! Impalement would have been a better choice to give Jesus a real pain in his anal cavity! God the Son Jesus Christ was able to conduct a long heated conversation with his peers on the other 2 crosses, and with some of the guests at the crucifixion site, and with the Roman soldiers that crucified him! Everybody at the crucifixion site heard them talk and somebody recorded the conversations for the benefit of the Christian Gospel writers that came 40 to100+ years later! The crucifixion could not have been that painful for Jesus Christ!
If Jesus would have had a pole penetrating into his Holy anus his eyes would be popping out of their orbit crying for God like a charm! 500 Years ago the Protestants wised up and removed the hanging corpse of Jesus Christ down from the Holy Cross. Only the Catholics still display a dead body nailed to a cross.
JESUS WAS NOT CARRYING HIS OWN CROSS! God the Son Jesus Christ was teaching that EVERYBODY SHOULD CARRY THEIR OWN CROSS AND FOLLOW HIM, but on his way to the crucifixion site Jesus was NOT CARRYING HIS OWN CROSS AT ALL, Saint Simon was forced to do it! Any religious image that you see of Jesus carrying his cross to Golgotha is a fraud!
Matthew 27:32 (NIV) As they were going out* (*to Golgotha), they met a man from Cyrene, named Simon, and THEY FORCED HIM TO CARRY THE CROSS.
In spite of Jesus’ beat up shape and having been covered in Roman soldiers’ spit, he still had a chance to preach a long sermon to the DAUGHTERS OF JERUSALEM, a fan group of rich ladies who were sustaining him in his lonely nights…
Luke 23:28 (NIV) Jesus turned and said to them, “DAUGHTERS OF JERUSALEM, do not weep for me; WEEP FOR YOURSELVES AND FOR YOUR CHILDREN...”
So much for the announced “REDEMPTION OF JERUSALEM,” at the birth of Jesus Christ… Christians still believe all kinds of stories about a 2nd coming, too!
Luke 2:38 (NIV) Coming up to them at that very moment* (*when the Priest was fondling Jesus’ little penis to clip the foreskin), SHE* (*a “daughter of Jerusalem”) gave thanks to God and spoke about the child to ALL WHO WERE LOOKING FORWARD TO THE REDEMPTION OF JERUSALEM.
Shortly after Jesus alleged crucifixion, Jerusalem was leveled to the ground, and all Jews taken into slavery! The redemption of Jerusalem never took place!!! But most preachers say that it will really happen sometime in the future at a second coming! The carrot hanging at the end of a string from a stick still works today!
