The Absurd Story of the End of Jesus' Life
If 2,000 years ago a man had been executed by Roman soldiers in Jerusalem but resurrected three days later, could he have established a religion that would last 2,000 years with a core of belief that he was actually God?
However, the New Testament describes that when Christ Jesus was arrested, nobody among His followers followed Him. They all forsook Him. They were so much afraid of Roman soldiers and priests of the Temple of Jerusalem. They did not even physically fight to protect Christ Jesus like Muslims did centuries later to protect the founder of Islam.
But those followers of Christ Jesus had been with Him for one year or more traveling from around Galilee to Jerusalem. They had been taught many, many things by Christ Jesus, including courage to fight against Satan and evil spirits. But they all deserted Christ Jesus. None accompanied Christ Jesus to be arrested together.
But when they found or believed that Christ Jesus came back to life three days after the Crucifixion, they suddenly changed their minds and claimed that Christ Jesus was God.
This is what the New Testament told. This is very absurd. Such a religion must have been neglected soon and forgotten any time soon. But, on the contrary, based on the Bible reporting these absurd events, Christianity has prevailed so much.
So, behind this absurd story of the end of the life of Christ Jesus, something very important must be hidden. Behind this easy change of attitudes of followers of Christ Jesus between the arrest of Christ Jesus and their strange shock and sublimation on their recognition of the Resurrection of Christ Jesus, something very important must be hidden.
And that something made it possible for Christianity to prevail in these 2000 years. However, it seems that none has doubted whether nothing important is lacked or omitted in the Gospels or suspected that the Gospels hide something important.
It is truly mysterious that 2,000 years ago a man, who was sent by God according to himself, was executed by Roman soldiers in Jerusalem but resurrected three days later, and he established a religion that lasted for 2,000 years. But why?

Joh 4:29 Come, see a man, which told me all things that ever I did: is not this the Christ?
