Christians around the world have had their faith rocked following the discovery of ancient texts in the former Palestine, which blow the entire Easter story sky-high. The papyrus scrolls contain passages claiming that following the Crucifixion, Jesus had been unable to achieve a resurrection, leaving his followers feeling frustrated and cheated.
The texts appear to have been written by one of the followers of Jesus, Mary Magdalene. In the Bible story, it is Mary who first witnesses the Messiahs resurrection, leaving her filled with hope, expectation and instantly lifting her headache. The story continues that Mary rushes to tell the disciples the news of how the Lord had ‘risen' and that over the course of many hours, they all queued patiently to witness the miracle, implying that Jesus was capable of maintaining his resurrection for some time.
However, the texts tell a different story and one passage in particular has destroyed many Christian’s faith, hope and security-blanket…
“….and verily, my Lord did boasteth that his death would frustrate me not and that soon he would transport me to heaven and maketh the earth move with a mighty resurrection and bringeth tears to my eyes. Upon his last breath, I did wait in high excitement and longing but to no avail. Seeing my lord still limpeth and lifeless upon the next dawn, I did feel sorely bereft and took myself to the Disciple Thomas, who had always exclaimed his doubt that the lord would achieve a resurrection and that if not, I should pop round and he would sorteth me out mightily….”
