瑞典研究人員說,沒有證據顯示耶穌是被釘在十字架上受難的。

 瑞典哥騰堡大學的山繆森是研究基督教的。他說,他也是個虔誠的基督徒,非常了解十字架對基督宗教的意義。不過,他翻閱耶穌受難前後的希臘、羅馬以及猶太文獻,都沒有找到確切的證據,證明當時羅馬帝國的刑罰裡有釘十字架這一項。

 他說,從他翻閱的資料來看,唯一提到十字架的只有新約聖經的福音書。目前的新約聖經是從拉丁文翻譯來的,但是拉丁文裡的十字架這個字還有別的意義,不一定是大家目前認定的十字架。

 

山繆森說,當時的文獻裡有許多關於耶穌的記載,卻沒有十字架的說法。因此他建議,聖經的故事已經很多了,大家讀聖經裡的文字就夠了,不要望文生義或是用自己的話來解釋聖經。

Swedish Theologian Claims Jesus Did Not Die On Cross

Theologian Gunnar Samuelsson of Gothenburg University says that the legend of Christ’s execution is not based on any real evidence but on the traditions of the Christian church and pieces of art rather than ancient texts.

Samuelsson believes that the Bible has been misinterpreted claiming that there are no textual references to crucifixion or even the use of nails in the Bible or other reliable texts of that time.

Mr Samuelsson claims:

“The sources where you would expect to find support for the established understanding of the event really don’t say anything. If you are looking for texts that depict the act of nailing persons to a cross you will not find any beside the Gospels."
