Student Dies Crucifixion: In a terrible occurrence, a Nigerian seminary student died while reenacting Jesus Christ’s crucifixion.
Sule Ambrose, 25, was gravely injured, but the spectators didn’t realize it for a few minutes since they assumed it was all part of the performance. Several news organizations have shared screenshots of the incident’s video footage.
According to the BBC, Ambrose, a first-year student, was studying to become a priest at the Claratian Institute of Philosophy in Nekede, southeastern Nigeria. According to sources, the philosophy student passed out while performing in the play “Passion of Christ” as Simon Peter, a disciple of Jesus.
On Good Friday, the incident occurred while reenacting a scene in which St. Peter cuts off a soldier’s ear to protect Jesus.
Ambrose was transported to a local hospital where he has pronounced dead shortly after.
People assumed Ambrose was kidding when he collapsed, according to a witness who spoke to Vanguard, a Nigerian news organization.
“At first, we believed it was a joke and that it was all part of the drama,” the individual was quoted as saying. “But when he couldn’t get up, we realized it was a serious situation and he was transported to the hospital.”
“When his condition worsened, he was transferred to a near-Federal Medical Center. It was from there that we learned he wouldn’t be able to survive,” he added.
According to news accounts, Ambrose died in an undisclosed manner.
Following the incident, local media stated that a protest took place at the campus and that administrators have declined to give a comment.
Those watching the Passion of the Christ play at a Nigerian university initially mistook it for a “joke” and thought it was part of the show before realizing it was serious.
A student died during a crucifixion re-enactment, which the audience mistook for part of the show, according to reports.
According to the Nigerian publication Vanguard, Suel Ambrose, a 25-year-old undergraduate at the Clariantian University of Nigeria in Nekede, collapsed during the Passion of the Christ performance.
The incident is alleged to have occurred on Good Friday, and audience members initially mistook it for a “joke” and a part of the show.
However, as the student started bleeding after falling, everyone realized it wasn’t a joke and he was transported to the hospital.
“At the time the tragedy occurred, everyone joined together and brought the deceased to a school hospital,” a Daily Star source stated, “and later, when the case became worse, he was taken to a neighboring Federal Medical Center, FMC.”
“It was from there that we learned he wouldn’t make it.”
“At first, we thought it was a joke and that it was all part of the drama, but when he couldn’t get up, we realized it was a serious situation, and he was brought to the hospital.”
More information regarding the incident has yet to be released by the university.
Nails are claimed to have been hammered through the hands and feet of Jesus Christ, according to religious traditions.
According to the Bible, he was speared by a Roman soldier and died while being forced to carry the cross, but there are speculations that his death was caused by a different injury.
On Friday, The Mirror reported that a doctor who is now a priest has proposed a fresh hypothesis about Jesus’ death.
Good Friday and Easter are associated with Jesus’ death, and much of what we know about his death comes from the New Testament gospels.
The Crucifixion, or the act of being tied or nailed to a cross, is the most well-known way in which Jesus met his death, but one scientist now believes that the critical moment occurred before the Roman nails entered his skin.
Rev Prof Patrick Pullicino, a doctor-turned-priest, believes Jesus died as a result of complications from a shoulder wound and being stretched out on the cross.
Jesus’ crucifixion took place in 1st-century Judea, most likely around AD 30 or AD 33. The crucifixion of Jesus is portrayed in the four canonical gospels, mentioned in New Testament epistles, attested to by other ancient sources, and widely accepted as a historical event, though historians disagree on the specific details.
According to the gospels, Jesus was arrested and judged by the Sanhedrin, then by Pontius Pilate, who sentenced him to be scourged, and ultimately by the Romans, who crucified him.
After saying “I am thirsty,” Jesus was stripped of his garments and brought vinegar mixed with myrrh or gall (likely posca) to drink. He was then hung between two convicted robbers and died around the 9th hour of the day, according to Mark’s Gospel (at around 3:00 p.m.).
During this time, the soldiers affixed a sign to the top of the cross that read “Jesus of Nazareth, King of the Jews,” which was inscribed in three languages, according to John’s Gospel (John 19:20).
According to John’s Gospel, they then divided his clothing among themselves and cast lots for his seamless robe. After Jesus’ death, according to the Gospel of John, one soldier (called Longinus in extra-Biblical tradition) pierced his side with a spear to ensure that he had died, and blood and water flowed from the wound.
Seven remarks uttered by Jesus while on the cross are recorded in the Bible, as well as other supernatural happenings that transpired.
Jesus’ suffering and redemptive death by crucifixion, together known as the Passion, are the major parts of Christian theology relating to the principles of salvation and atonement.
