    Did Jesus rise from the dead as claimed?

    I find it so disturbing to read in the Bible that Jesus was taken off the crucifix by Joseph of Arimathea, who placed the body in his own private tomb. Then the ladies carry perfume and herbs to the dead body to anoint it. Why? This is so disturbing that I am assuming Jesus didn't die as claimed.

    You speak as though the body is the person. It's only a temporary vessel.

    Those who have awakened spiritually will be living in the spirit, even though the body may be dead. Jesus was living in spirit before his body died, so of course he rose from the dead of his body.

    Of course his body died. But don't be so limited as to think that the body is all there is of the person.

      But the body was physically raised from the dead. The only thing left in the tomb were the sheets that they used to wrap the body.

      And why would the spirit need to remove the stone from the entrance to the sepulcher? And why would the spirit show bodily wounds to doubting Thomas? And why would it feel pangs hunger and ask for food?

    I was not there so I cannot categorically say no, he did not. Such a statement does however, violate all reason. The Old and new Testaments are inherently wrong about so many things, that such claims lack  any credibility, except for those who who deny the capacity to reason. The story of a Jesus, from birth to death, lacks any substantive evidence or corroborative and reliable testimony. That such things are to be accepted on faith serve only to promote an obedience to a cause.
    Consider the overall story line; an all-powerful  god,  creator of all things and possessing all knowledge of all that will happen, creates an embodiment of (Jesus--a Son) himself with all such attributes. He then  allows himself to be crucified,  knowing that it would happen so that he can claim to have sacrificed his life for Man.  Jesus then returns to be, as himself--god. What sacrifice was made here? From Man to god is no sacrifice.
    Now this god also created an inferior life form and that would be us.  He creates this life form not knowing or knowing the end result of that life? We are told that this god tests our love for him, not knowing the test score in advance?

    Excellent question! I myself believe that Jesus did not die on the cross but had fallen into a swoon from which he revived three days later according to his own prophecy where he said that his sign would be like the sign of Jonah who also survived a brush with death and recovered from the belly of the fist in three days.

    Also, take into account that Jesus spends only a few hours on the cross as crucifixion is set for day before Sabbath when bodies must be taken down from the cross before nightfall. Pontius Pilate had also become sympathetic to Jesus.

    These is now a body of evidence emerging that he escaped Judea and may have spent the rest of his days in India preaching to the lost tribes of the Israelites who were scattered around East Asia so he could complete his mission.

    Inconceivable that God would reject Jesus's prayers at The Garden of Gethsemane and allow his to die a humiliating death.

    Take a look at the following Hub, would like to get your thoughts on it . . .

    it is too bad  that you are so disturbed.    But if you had of checked out the way they did things back then you would have found this was the custom  of the jews of that day.     It might have saved you from being so disturbed.,
    How in the world can you equate you being "disturbed" with Jesus not dying??
