How Jesus was really crucified

Jesus could have been crucified on a tree

As I have written in another hub, Jesus Christ was crucified on a tree not a cross. The Cross comes from a pagan relgion. The origin of the cross is Babylon and was the symbol of the god Tammuz. The crosses were used as the symbols of the Babylonian sun god which they were used they were shaped like T.

Dr. Bullinger, The Companion Bible, which has appx. 162. states that crosses were symbols of the Babylonian sun god that Constantine worshiped. Constantine was a pagan before he became a Chistian, which is one of the reasons he put pagan traditions, and symbols into Christianity. Constantine also, put many pagan traditions and symbols into Christanity, so he could make other pagans become Christians.

As I have written in another hub, there are many reason to believe Jesus Christ was not crucified on a cross. There are many verses in the bible that use the word "tree" rather then the word "cross". The word "cross" is used in the chapters Mathew, Mark, Luke, and John, when describing the crusifiction of Jesus Christ.

In the following chapters, however, only the word "tree" is used when the apostles are talking about the crucifiction of Jesus Christ..

Millions of people wear crosses as jewelry. Millions of crosses are on the front of the church. Millions of dollars are made by people who sell crosses. Why has the cross become so popular?

Nice follow up hub, Michele :) The history of the Church and how certain symbols appeared and became a part of it is a very interesting topic and I do believe that people should know what they believe in and how it came about.

Thank you North Wind. I think the most important thing is that we Love God, and know God loves us. And the commandments also. But, knowing God loves us and forgive us, and loving God is wonderful.

And it matters not, because salvation comes from "Knowledge", as the "Gnostics" well knew (Gnostic=knowledge), not a sacrificial death (Isaiah 53:11). The idea of sacrificing Jesus came from something he said to Judas, recorded in The Gospel of Judas: "You will exceed them all, for you will sacrifice the man that bears me." That was Jesus telling Judas that he will sacrifice HIMSELF, not Jesus. Mystics merge into their Masters' form when they "resurrect" while LIVING.

Thank you for your comment fuzzrabbit. It is interesting, why the churches have left so many of the chapters people have written out of the bible.

As you mentioned above... Constantine did allow these things to be.

All christians do give Constantine credit for allowing "The Church" to grow;

What no one ever mentions is that he was the ultimate Authority over the church. The Emperor of the Roman Empire established it and resided over it.

Less that 60 years later, power began shifting away from the Western Roman Empire, into the hands of the "Holy Roman Empire".

For a "time" Government and religion were ONE and the same! Prophesy fulfilled ???

Is it possible to believe in, and follow God; ... and not follow religion?

There were millions of people that died believing the answer to that question to be YES!

By the way, welcome to Bub Pages.

Thank you for your comment. You are correct in the history of the religion of Christians.

However, there is a lot more for me to learn.

Thank you for welcoming me to hubpages.

INteresting HUB, Michelle. I've always taken the word "tree" in reference to the Bible to be a metaphor. Romans did use crosses to execute criminals so it's not out of the realm of possibility that Jesus was actually crucified on a cross, but it's also irrelevant. He either died or He didn't. Also, the Jehovah's Witnesses teach that He was crucified on a stake not a cross.

Good hub. Thought provoking.

Thank you, for your comment. I am always wanting to learn more. I am not sure what he was crucified on matters, he allowed himself to be crucified for our sins. That is what matters.

He was crucified on an olive tree on WED and resurrected on SAT the sabbath at Passover ! The cross is a pagan symbol created by the Roman emperor Constantine. www.messengers-of-messiah.org

Thank you very, very much for your comment! The word ' Tree' is used by followers of Jesus when they talk about His crucifixion.

God bless you.


The Truth 2 years ago

I'm sorry to burst your bubble but Jesus is simply a fictional representation of the Sumerian/Babylonian Sun god Tammuz. I've noticed that Christians will try and change every last little detail of everything to distance Christ from pagan symbology when they finally start to see the truth with their own eyes. Christianity is an ancient Sun cult and the evidence conclusively proves this fact. You can make all of the plot twists that you want to distance Christianity from paganism but it's impossible, and try as you might, you'll never change the fact that like all religions, Christianity is an artificial means of mind control. Christ IS the SUN....the LIGHT of the world...the RISEN savior...God's SUN...the way, the truth and, the LIGHT. It doesn't matter if you take the cross away because Christ will still remain a fictional representation of the ancient Sumerian/Babylonian Sun god Tammuz/Nimrod. It might sound like I'm being an asshole but that isn't my intention...I'm just trying to snap you out of the brainwashing of religion.

Thank You to Jerami for setting the record straight and for giving of your knowledge. Because with today's times of the internet it is Easy to get false information or let people turn words around. It is nice to hear someone educating people with truth. Especially when it comes to Religion. ! So Everyone please search for second opinions and literature on Topics that are surprising to you. Most likely someone is trying to lead you down a dark road. To make you hate yourself and Life in general like them.!!!!!
