What if Jesus Had Not Been Crucified, So There Was No Easter?

I very much respect Jesus, and people’s religious beliefs, so there is no offense intended when I raise this intriguing question: What if Jesus had not been crucified? What if he had lived a long life, perhaps even to experience old age and die of natural causes? bit.ly/H8ZpBn

No offense, but I find that question too tedious to attempt to answer. It’s like asking "what if God didn’t separate air from water and we all had gills, then there’d be no basketball. "

Speculation. This is not a news article about Catholic news.
