This he did probably under instructions from General Pilate, to keep Rabbis away from Jesus. This shows that in facts Roman rulers were supporting Jesus and what they did was only to keep Jewish priests from pestering them further. It was in the larger interest that Roman government allowed that impression to continue so that Jew priests do not raise the issue of Jesus again. All records of this matter were conveniently removed from the documents. This explains why we do not find any mention of crucification of Jesus in Roman records. In a way, a well-planned conspiracy was hatched by the Roman General to save Jesus from further trouble from the Jew priests. It was such a secret plan that even Roman Church was not informed of it because Roman Church priest were in good relations with the Rabbis. Therefore, when Roman Church became Roman Catholic Church, that ignorance continued with them. In preaching St. Paul often mentions the crucification but that does not mean dead. (1 Corinthian: 1:23; 1 Corinthian: 2:2)
Corinthian: 1:23 but we preach Christ crucified an obstacle to Jews and foolishness to Gentiles, [to fool the Jews and their Gentiles]
Corinthian: 2:2 because I resolved to know nothing while I was with you, except Jesus Christ and him crucified (but not killed).
Mythical story was spread in people that Jesus was taken away by angels to the heaven and then he came down to meet his followers; only to appease Jew Rabbis so that they remain under the impression that Jesus really has died on the Cross. Because of this story when they saw Jesus among his followers in Galilee they did not suspect anything and he was allowed to move away in search of lost tribes of Jews to East. Had they not spread this mythical story that Jesus has come down from heaven on earth these Jew priests would have tried to kill him again anyway.
St. Paul had misgivings about death of Jesus he often expressed it.
1 Corinthians 15:14 And if Christ has not been raised, our preaching is useless and so is your faith.
1 Corinthians 15:15 More than that, we are then found to be false witnesses about God, for we have testified about God that he raised Christ from the dead. However, he did not raise him if in fact the dead are not raised. (By this last statement, Paul has indicated his doubts about the event of God raising Jesus out of death.)
1 Corinthians 15:16 For if the dead are not raised, then Christ has not been raised either. (By this statement, he stealthily admits of the fact that Jesus was not raised out of death.)
1 Corinthians 15:17 And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins. (Here, Paul finally admits of the truth that what his Church is propagating is not the true message of Jesus, which is the fact.)
1 Corinthians 15:19 If only for this life we have hope in Christ, we are of all people most to be pitied.
These quotations from the Gospel of Corinthian explain the truth that Church, which Paul represents, does not truly represent the message of Jesus but something else. Because of this Roman Catholic Church cannot afford to accept the fact that Jesus did not die on Cross. If the do, then all their story of their religion will be exposed as it solely depends on this big lie that Jesus died on Cross. Nevertheless, as we know, if he is died on Cross then how is it that he is favorite of God. As it is popularly accepted that those who die on cross are condemned permanently.
