I think the good people over at the AP are reaching. Excerpt from the article entitled Israeli Doctor: Clot May Have Killed Jesus:
JERUSALEM – Jesus may have died from a blood clot that reached his lungs, an Israeli physician said Wednesday, challenging the popular conception that he died of asphyxiation and blood loss during his crucifixion.
Dr. Benjamin Brenner, a researcher at the Rambam Medical Center in the Israeli port city of Haifa, said he was publicizing his theory to raise awareness pulmonary embolism, a potentially fatal disorder often associated with long-distance air travel.
So, you see, if Jesus has only stayed off airplanes, there wouldn’t have been any trouble. And you wonder why I have to take Xanax in order to fly.
