    CHAPTER 9

    "RESURRECTIONS" DAILY!

     

     

     

    STRANGER THAN FICTION

     

    With all the advancements in the Medical field since Christ; with
    all the modern, scientific instruments at our disposal; hundreds of
    people are being certified "dead", every day all over the world. Whilst
    busy writing this, my attention is being drawn to the near murder of a
    Mr. Barnabas who was being carried to the mortuary after being
    "declared clinically dead". Not by inexperienced ancient Roman
    soldiers, but by highly-qualified Medical men. The news item is
    reproduced on the side, as is, as a New Year '84 shock!1 This with
    another shocker from Ripley's: "BELIEVE IT OR NOT!" is also reproduced
    at the end of this book, with a suggestion that some young journalist
    keep his eyes open for people who have come back from the "dead", and
    write an anthology, which might well-nigh become a best-seller. Here is
    a list for a start: — What would you say?

     

    RESURRECTED OR RESUSCITATED?

     

    1.
    LITTLE GIRL WHO "DIED" TELLS HOW SHE CAME BACK TO LIFE (After 4 Days)
    — ("Daily News" 15/11/55).

    2. MAN
    DIED FOR TWO HOURS: STILL LIVES — "Miracle" amazes doctors —
    ("Sunday Tribune" 27/3/60).

    3. HE
    DIED FOR 4 MINUTES — Man's heart stops but he lives on — ("Sunday
    Express" 23/7/61).

    4. HE
    DOES NOT KNOW THAT HE DIED FOR 90 SECONDS — ("Cape Argus" 16/3/61).

    5. DR.
    HITGE RETURNED FROM THE DEAD — ("Cape Argus" 4/5/61).

    6. THE
    COFFIN MOVED — Young man narrowly escaped being buried alive —
    ("Sunday Tribune" 13/5/62).

    7. BACK
    FROM THE DEAD — After being thought dead for 2 days — ("Post"
    25/7/65).

    8.
    "CORPSE" WINKS AT UNDERTAKER — Doctor wrote out a death certificate —
    ("Daily News" 25/3/75).

    9.
    "CLINICALLY DEAD" — Toddler alive after hour-long revival battle — ("Natal Mercury" 5/12/82).

    10. WAS
    HE DEAD OR ALIVE? — The dilemma facing transplant Doctors — ("Sunday
    Tribune" 17/7/83).

    11. SHAKEN AND STIRRED — Declared clinically dead "from too much
    Christmas liquor" — ("Daily News" 3/1/84).

    This
    sombre list would be incomplete without the picture of an exclusive
    club, the only qualification of whose membership is — TO HAVE DIED AND
    LIVED AGAIN! If everything happened to Jesus "according to the
    Scriptures", then, he could easily become its doyen (Senior member of a
    body).
