It seems from your answers on this issue as Jesus died after a lapse of time after the incident of the so-called crucifixion. If this was so then why the Jews claim that they caused Jesus to die with crucifixion and then Qur’an had to clarify the situation?
The details regarding the so-called crucifixion and death of Jesus (pbuh) are not given in the Qur’an, due to which it is difficult to say something regarding these events with any degree of certainty. Even the clarification given by the Qur’an is limited to the extent that Jesus (pbuh) was not crucified, contrary to the claims of the Jews, and the whole incident was rendered into confusion for them.
How was the incident rendered into confusion for the Jews? If Jesus (pbuh) was not crucified, then when did he die? These and other similar questions are not answered by the Qur’an and, therefore, cannot be answered with certainty.
