Please. Then send for Alexander. Ironman March 26, 2016 at 10:55 am It sounds fun!!! dearieme March 26, 2016 at 12:44 pm I suppose that attaching someone to a cross is a sort of yoga? Nautical Nick March 26, 2016 at 1:47 pm I think you’ve nailed it, dearieme…. dearieme March 26, 2016 at 3:11 pm Mind you, the synoptic gospels don’t claim that the wee man was nailed to the cross anyway. As all Christians presumably know. Kevin B March 26, 2016 at 3:36 pm Wasn’t yoga invented so that people could get into all the positions in the kama Sutra? john77 March 26, 2016 at 3:51 pm @ dearieme Of course – we all realise that the Romans made a one-off exception and fastened Him to the cross with Blu-tack! Each Gospel states that He was crucified which was a process that involved nailing the victim to a cross. theProle March 26, 2016 at 9:46 pm @dearieme Luke does say that in one of his resurrection appearances he instructed his disciples to look at his hands and feet to see it really was him. I’d take that as a “check this out – I was nailed on a cross – it really is me” instruction – other-wise it makes little sense.

So, blessed be to all the Christians celebrating ostara, the feast of the goddess this weekend! So Much For Subtlety March 27, 2016 at 11:55 pm dearieme – “Mind you, the synoptic gospels don’t claim that the wee man was nailed to the cross anyway. As all Christians presumably know.” Although it takes a particularly bloody minded view to exclude John. John 20:24-29King James Version (KJV) 24 But Thomas, one of the twelve, called Didymus, was not with them when Jesus came. 25 The other disciples therefore said unto him, We have seen the Lord. But he said unto them, Except I shall see in his hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into his side, I will not believe. 26 And after eight days again his disciples were within, and Thomas with them: then came Jesus, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, Peace be unto you. 27 Then saith he to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing. 28 And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God. 29 Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.
