There is a theory that says that when one is crucified, the pleural sac (the membrane that encases the heart and lungs) tends to fill with fluid, and that most of those who died during crucifixion was resultant from subsequent asphyxiation. The idea was that the Roman spear in the side was actually meant to release the pressure on Jesus' lungs from the fluid within. Effectively preventing his death.

This, to me, is a bit more believeable than the ressurection one. Maybe not a bit, more like a lot.

Has anyone heard or read this theory, and does it really hold water?

Pun intended, of course...

If, you actually look at Roman customs, you would see that they had these little test to make sure that people were dead. For instance if a man was on the cross for a long period of time they would break there legs so they could die quicker, by not having their legs to keep pressure off of their chest i.e lungs. So seeing that jesus was a jew and that the passover was near they had to hurry up and kill the jews. The Roman soldier stabbed him in the side to make sure that he was dead.
