A:We may never know if Jesus was really crucified, but we can be sure that the events did not really unfold as described in the gospels.

Here is a brief summary of why the whole episode as described in The Bible is impossible, in the words of the Jewish philosopher of religion Schalom Ben-Chorin:

"Jesus celebrates the seder-night (the Passover meal) with his disciples. If he was to be arrested by the Jewish authorities on this night, after the solemnities, it would be unthinkable for the hearing to have taken place in the house of the high priest Caiaphas on this most holy of nights. Unthinkable too that Jesus would be handed over to Pilate on the morning of the feast, and crucified on the first day of Passover ... Anyone familiar with Jewish law and customs immediately senses here that the whole thing simply couldn't have happened. If Jesus had been arrested on the seder night, then he would have been kept in custody until after Passover, and everything else would have been played out afterward."
