You know those guys back then could put themselves into a “trance” literally mimicking death. So Jesus was doing this on the cross and was taken down and put in that grave believing he was dead.
Then a few days later he showed up at his apostles house… They told him “dude, if you don’t get the hell outta town they are going to CHOP your head off. So Jesus ran off and so the legend was born.. Ya ever heard that story?
