It has been suggested by some authors (such as Hugh Schonfield in “The Passover Plot” and Baigent, et. al in “Holy Blood, Holy Grail”) that Jesus may not have died on the cross, but allowed another to die in his place. What is the origin of this curious notion, and what are its implications? In “The Judas Goat,” author Tracy R. Twyman (“Dagobert’s Revenge,” “The Merovingian Mythos,” etc) explores the Islamic and heretical Christian legends pertaining to the Crucifixion, which indicate that the Christ who died at Calvary may have been a substitute sacrifice for his own twin brother. Furthermore, the identity of the victim is the same figure who plays the role of the Scapegoat in Christianity, blamed for the death of Jesus: Judas Iscariot.
