        So he got whipped and flayed, crucified for nine hours, and stabbed in the side. That's all? No wonder he got right back up after a few days rest.

          Is he saying Jesus DID die, just not on the cross but by the spear?

            Therefore, when he found out from the Centurion, Pilate gave the body according to Mark 15:45.


            With the cumulative facts stated above, I submit to you that Jesus did not die at in the process.

            I think he's trying to argue that Jesus only lost consciousness and that the fact that blood and water flowed from His side when He was pierced by the spear somehow proves that he wasn't dead. How he comes to that conclusion is beyond me though . He seems to be using arguments similar to the ones found in this article:

              That's just it...he isn't very clear here just what he means...did Jesus die, just not of crucifixion, but rather by the spear? I do assume he, being Muslim, intended to mean Jesus didn't die at all. But he's not clear on that, so IDK.

                He is saying he didn't die at all.

                  Is he serious? That was the most strung together bunch of half-proofs I've seen in a while...

                    Blood and serum flowing separately IS a sign that death has occurred. Even the Romans knew that.

                      Right. The blood starts to separate shortly after the heart stops beating. A large flow of blood would be more likely with a perforation of the distended and thin-walled right atrium or ventricle than the thick-walled and contracted left ventricle.

                          The executioners had crucified thousands of people by the time of Jesus' death. They certainly weren't too stupid to not recognize a dead person when they saw one, and that is without the medical knowledge we boast of now.

                            The swoon theory? Is that the theory that gives Jesus a healing factor ala Wolverine?
                            If it weren't for the Resurrection of Jesus, we'd all be in DEEP TROUBLE!
