If you remember the story of Mary Magdalene when she went to the tomb on the third day. It is mentioned in the Gospel of John Ch. 20 v 1 as well as the Gospel of Mark Ch. 16 v 2:

The first day of the week cometh Mary Magdalene early, when it was yet dark, unto the sepulchre, and seeth the stone taken away from the sepulchre.

KJV Bible, John 20:1

And very early in the morning the first day of the week, they came unto the sepulchre at the rising of the sun.

KJV Bible, Mark 16:2

This day implies a Sunday because the Sabbath day for the Jews is Saturday. The first day of the week is Sunday and it was the first day of the week that Mary Magdalene went to the tomb.

Question: Why should Mary Magdalene go to the tomb on the third day after Jesus Christ was supposedly dead?

The reply to this question is given in the preceding verse, in the Gospel of Mark Ch. 16 v 1:

And when the Sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of James and Salome had bought sweet pieces, that they might come and anoint him.

KJV Bible, Mark 16:1

Thus, Mary Magdalene goes to massage Jesus Christ; to anoint him. The word here is anoint, the original Hebrew word is masaaha which means to anoint; to rub; to massage. From this Hebrew word, masaaha was derived the term Messiah which is known as Maseeh in Arabic and if you translate to Greek, it means Christos which was latinized to deduce the word Christ the anointed one.

Question: Do Jews massage dead bodies on the third day? Have you ever heard Jews massaging dead bodies on the third day?

- And the answer is No!

Question: Do Christians massage dead bodies on the third day?

- And the answer is No!

Question: Do Muslims massage dead bodies on the third day?

- And the answer remains False!

So, why is Mary Magdalene going to the tomb to massage Jesus Christ who is supposedly dead on the third day according to the Christians? Do you know why?

It is because she was the only one besides Joseph of Arimathea and Nicodemus who gave the burial birth to Jesus and when Jesus body was brought forth; she might have seen some life in the laid body. But naturally, she is not going to proclaim: He is alive, otherwise, they would put him to death again. Seeing certain life in the laid body; she comes back on the third day after the Sabbath in search of an alive Jesus so as to massage him.

And it is mentioned in the Gospel of Mark Ch. 16 v 4 and Gospel of John Ch. 20 v 5-7 that she (Mary Magdalene) finds the stones have been removed and winding sheet unwound:

And when they looked, they saw that the stone was rolled away; for it was very great.

KJV Bible, Mark 16:4

And he stooping down, and looking in, saw the linen clothes lying; yet went he not in. Then cometh Simon Peter following him, and went into the sepulchre, and seeth the linen clothes lie, and the napkin, that was about his head, not lying with the linen clothes, but wrapped together in a place by itself.

KJV Bible, John 20:5-7

Question: Why was the stone removed and the winding sheet unwound? I mean, Why should the stone be removed and why should the winding sheets be unwound and placed at the side?

If Jesus Christ was resurrected as a spiritual body; does a spirit require the stone of the entry of the tomb to be removed?

If he was a spirit, doors cannot stop a spirit from entering; the stone need not be removed; so why was the stone removed?

And if a spirit has to move, does it have to unwound the winding sheets? That is not required!

But if it was a physical body and not a spiritual one, the stone blocking the entering of the tomb has to be removed; the winding sheets has to be unwound Proving that the person who came out of the tomb was a physical body.

And the tomb was a private property of the secret disciple, Joseph of Arimathea who was a rich and influential Jew and he had carved a big roomy tomb (maybe for himself for future) in which the allegedly crucified body was kept.

The tomb was his sepulchre and according to Jim Bishop, he says:

It was very roomy, very big; 5ft width, 7ft height and 15ft depth

Question: Why do you require a roomy tomb?

- So that, if anyone wants to help a person, it can be done easily.

Question: Why would anyone want to help a spiritual body?

- A spiritual body doesnt require help; but naturally, they want to help a physical body.

Question: Why would anyone want to help a spiritual body?

- A spiritual body doesnt require help; but naturally, they want to help a physical body.

Further if you read, in the Gospel of John Ch. 20 v 15: Jesus Christ says to Mary Magdalene:

Jesus saith unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? Whom seekest thou? She, supposing him to be the gardener, saith unto him, sir, if thou have borne him hence, tell me where thou hast laid him, and I will take him away.

KJV Bible, John 20:15

Question: Why did Mary Magdalene suppose Jesus Christ to be a gardener? Do resurrected bodies look like gardeners? Do they - YES or NO!

- Absolutely NOT! So, why should she suppose Jesus Christ to be a gardener? And the answer is because he was disguised as a gardener; but why should a spiritual body be disguised as a gardener?

Jesus Christ can only be disguised as a gardener because he was afraid of the Jews. A spiritual body need not be afraid of the Jews; so why? Because, according to Hebrews Ch. 9 v 27:

And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this Judgement.

KJV Bible, Hebrews 9:27

That implies that a man is ordained to die once and after that is the day of Judgement. According to the statement ascribed to Jesus Christ in the Gospel of Luke Ch. 20 v 36:

Neither can they die anymore: for they are equal unto the angels; and are the children of God, being the children of the resurrection.

KJV Bible, Luke 20:36

This means that when you are spiritualized, you dont have to be afraid of anyone, No one can harm you, you cannot die a second time.

Question: If Jesus Christ was spiritualized, why should he be disguised as a gardener? Why should he run away from the Jews?

- Proving that he was not a spiritual body but he was physically alive!

And he, Jesus Christ called upon Mary, saying MARY, one word was sufficient for Mary to recognize her Master. You know, every individual have a particular style of calling their beloved ones. And the tone with the style which you call your beloved ones is sufficient to recognize the identity of the caller. Immediately, she (Mary) recognizes that the caller was Jesus Christ and she rushes forward to him.

This evident call and unhesitant response is mentioned in the Gospel of John Ch. 20 v 16-17; Jesus Christ is attributed to have said:

Jesus saith unto her, Mary. She turned herself and saith to him, Rabboni which is to say, Master. Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my father; but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my father, and your father; and to my God and your God.

KJV Bible, John 20:16-17

Question: Why, why Touch me not? Was he a bundle of electricity that if someone touches him, a person would be electrocuted? Was he a bundle of dynamite that if someone touches, they would blow up? So, why did he say Touch me not?

- Because he was a physical body; imagine the pain, the physical stress, the emotional pressure he had to go through, all that supposedly put on the cross all that pain and torture. It would hurt a physical body; thus, he says Touch me not.

And he continues to stress in the same verse: I have not ascended unto my father - What are the real meanings of ascension here?

- Jesus Christ is emphatically stating that he has not yet been dead. While standing in front of Mary, Jesus Christ unequivocally says he had not ascended yet - he was not resurrected, proving that he was alive.

Later on, it is mentioned in the Gospel of Mark Ch. 16 v 11 that the disciples had heard that Jesus Christ was alive from Mary Magdalene:

And they, when they had heard that he was alive, had been seen of her, believed not.

KJV Bible, Mark 16:11

THE PROPHECY || Scriptural Truth or Fallacy

The Jews are of the habit of posing questions, troubling the Messengers of Almighty God (peace be upon them all). The Glorious Quran also confirms that such are the habits of the Jews to Moses (peace be upon him), they troubled and harassed him; the same, they did to Jesus Christ (peace be upon him). Further, it is mentioned in Matthew Ch.12 v 38:

Then certain of the Scribes and of the Pharisees answered, saying, Master, we would see a sign from thee.

KJV Bible, Matthew 12:38

The Jews demanded a sign, meaning a Miracle. All the good works that Jesus [pbuh] did, was not sufficient to convince these Jews, they are still requesting for him to give them a sign; to give them a miracle.

miracles like flying in the air, walking on water, walking on burning charcoal; they wanted some miracles

Sign, here does not refer to a sign on the road post - No, not that sign. It particularly means a Miracle; and if you read the New International version of the Bible, it says: a miraculous sign

Question: What was the reply of Jesus Christ?

In the next verse, Gospel of Matthew Ch. 12 v 39-40, it states:

But he answered and said unto them, an evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the Prophet Jonas. For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whales belly; so shall the son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.

KJV Bible, Matthew 12:39-40

- Jesus Christ didnt say, Go and meet the blind person who I gave sight;

- He didnt refer them to ask the woman whom only by touching him got healed;

- Jesus Christ didnt refer them to the two thousand (2000) pigs he killed to heal a possessed man;

- He didnt mention the thousands of people he fed with a broiled fish and bread.
