The Flaw in Jesus' Resurrection
by Phronesus Disegno
Age Group: Adult
It's said that Jesus died for us,
They hung him on the cross.
But something simply isn't right
And I am at a loss...
Back in Roman times of old
The Romans crucified,
And those unfortunate enough
Remained hung 'til they died.
The bodies then were piled up
And burned, there was no grave;
How, then, was Jesus buried
In some tomb or in some cave?
Did someone take him off the cross
Past Roman guards that eve?
Or put him in a tomb from which
The dead inside could leave?
And if they knew he'd resurrect,
Appear on that third day,
Why didn't everyone show up?
Why were they all away?
It's something very strange to me:
Who took him to that section?
And where were all the people on
The day of resurrection?
Appropriation of beliefs
As clever as a fox;
From what the Pagans know as true:
The Vernal Equinox --
"Easter" -- the first Sunday that's
After first Full Moon
That's after the first day of Spring.
Those Christians I impugn.
Oestara was the first we know
But Christians changed it all,
They call it "Easter" in Jesus' name.
My, my, they have some gall.
Author's Notes: impugn - attack as false or wrong.
