Did Jesus Survive The Crucifiction?
Given that Jesus only spent a few short hours on the cross, and it was not
unknown for people to survive being crucified after spending as much as 5
days on the cross, is it not a possibility that Jesus too survived his
crucifiction experience and went on to live for many more years.
After all Pontious Pilate did not want to crucify him so the Romans may
have been keen to release him after a few hours of torment. He had already
been made to suffer terribly from being scourged.
This would explain in a far more plausible way how he 'rose from the dead'
and there were contemporary reports from objective witnesses that he left
Jerusalem to go and live in the far east.

Jesus diddn't survive the crucifiction, but he did come back to life after

No Jesus died on that cross of Calvary for your sin,s and mine and don,t
ever forget it,he gave us a way to eternal
life that we didn't have,so give him the credit due.
NO- He died on the Cross, and was buried in a tomb- HE ROSE FROM THE DEAD-
it was a miracle, it was an act of sacrificial love that placed Jesus on
the cross, and victory over death through His resurrection. Why is it so
hard to comprehend that God did this? Maybe because if some people would
believe it that would have to accept the fact they need a Savior. I did,
and I am so thankful I did- I serve a risen Savior!!
"So the soldiers came, and broke the legs of the first man and of the
other who was crucified with Him; but coming to Jesus, when they saw that
He was already dead, they did not break His legs." (John 19:32-33)
From what I've heard recently the story of Christ dying on the cross
and then being ressurected is an untrue version of events. A Christian
person I know who is a friend of a close friend recently told me the
story goes something like this:
We all know the story about how Christ was nailed to the cross, and
no, he couldn't have died of bleeding because there are minimal to no
blood vessels in the middle of the palms to create enough blood loss
to kill a person. Generally after a criminal was crucified to the
cross their legs were broken by the Roman soldiers. Why did the Romans
break the legs of the victims, you ask? Death by crucifixion occurred
through 'exhaustion asphyxia' as it is called - the victim suffocated.
The position of the body on the cross leaves the chest muscles used
for breathing in a permanent inhalation position. So to exhale, the
victim would have to actively push his body up against the nails
holding his feet to the cross. By breaking the victims legs, the only
way he could breathe was by using his arm and shoulder muscles to pull
against the nails in his hands to lift his body. This maneuver was
extremely painful and tiring, so that the victim died relatively
quickly out of exhaustion and eventually suffocating. Also, all the
blood rushes to the upper-body in such a position since the arms are
what support the person being crucified, so that whole experience
draws blood away from other regions of the body as well.
Now, after Jesus was pinned to the cross, the Roman soldiers gambled
below him to decide who would get pieces of his clothing. Eventually
they broke the legs of the other two criminals who were also crucified
along with Jesus, and at the same time an Earthquake was said to
occur. Noticing Jesus was not breathing (though he was, just his
breath was so shallow since he was unconscious that they assumed he
was already dead), the soldiers didn't bother breaking his legs and
got him down from the cross. To make sure he was dead, though, they
stabbed him in the side, he was known to have bled and blood spurted
out of his side (which shouldn't have happened since if he had been
crucified long enough to have died, his blood wouldn't be 'spurting'.
Anyway, he was alive, but the soldiers were too dumb to realise, they
actually bandaged him up and then put him in the cave, where he woke
up (since he was unconscious) later and walked out, in pain obviously,
but alive - and hence we have the 'ressurection' of Christ.
It is also rumoured that he then actually did have children later and
spent his last days on Cyprus or something.
Jesus had a very rich friend, Joseph of Arimathea, who prepared a burial
chamber THAT WAS NOT OCCUPIED. Jews wouldn't want to be buried with a
Jesus' blood flowed; therefore, his heart was still pumping
Add that Jewish law required that the crucified men had to be removed from
the cross before the Jewish Sabbath commenced, dead or alive.

The Lost Tomb of Jesus is a documentary which makes a case that the
2,000-year-old "Tomb of the Ten Ossuaries" belonged to the family of Jesus
Simcha Jacobovici, the reporter of 'The Naked Archaeologist' fame, has
produced an excellent documentary here.
Mr. Cameron, along with journalist Simcha Jacobovici, say they have
uncovered the burial cave of Jesus and his family — along with enough DNA
evidence to establish, they say, that Jesus wasn't resurrected and that
Jesus sired a son with Mary Magdelene.
The story starts 27 years ago when Israeli construction workers in the
Jerusalem suburb of Talpiyot unearthed a 2,000-year-old cave holding 10
