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?
