Was Jesus invented through ancient myths?

THINK THIS ARGUMENT WORKS? WELL..NOT REALLY!!

Where in the World?

PROOF OF THE REAL MOUNT SINAI IN ARABIA!

The Bible bends all natural laws and rules because it is a supernatural book.
It cannot POSSIBLY be understood by a natural mind focused upon natural understanding. That is what Nicodemus discovered when he came to Christ trying to understand, with a natural mind, supernatural events and teachings.

Because scientists being naturally skeptical, have minds trapped in the box of the five physical senses they cannot focus therefore on the supernatural aspects to understand the biblical 'Birdseye view' of God, who sees things from OUTSIDE time and space, the box that we as finite are limited within .

There was a reason why Jesus said you must be born again. It is a SPIRITUAL rebirth [Both of Mind and Spirit] that is needed to release the hidden evidence of things we cannot witness from inside this physical 'BOX' universe.

I KNOW from personal experience that the Bible is true but I cannot convince you, you must find the truth yourself. THAT'S HOW LIFE WORKS!

Spend less time developing your skeptical natural mind and THAT'S WHAT YOUR DOING, and more time focusing on what Christ taught and you will discover as I have, the truth. You can only interpret the Universe through the shaded lens of your own understanding!

Part 4 - The Bibles Big Events :The resurrection of the saints, and their subsequent appearance to many !

To begin this lesson, I would be amiss if I first did not present the VAST evidence available to prove that Jesus Christ rose from the dead or the whole point of others doing it at the same time would be impossible. 
He is the 'Firstborn from among the dead' so it follows logically that others would follow! If Jesus rose as stated then the others having rose from their graves on that day are automatically proven to be possible.
 Mark 8:31-38 (Amplified Bible)
Jesus tells about his death to come and Resurrection!
31And He began to teach them that the Son of Man must of necessity suffer many things and be tested and disapproved and rejected by the elders and the chief priests and the scribes, and be put to death, and after three days rise again [from death].
    32And He said this freely (frankly, plainly, and explicitly, making it unmistakable). And Peter took Him by the hand and led Him aside and then [facing Him] began to rebuke Him.
    33But turning around [His back to Peter] and seeing His disciples, He rebuked Peter, saying, Get behind Me, Satan! For you do not have a mind intent on promoting what God wills, but what pleases men [you are not on God's side, but that of men].
    34And Jesus called [to Him] the throng with His disciples and said to them, If anyone intends to come after Me, let him deny himself [forget, ignore, disown, and lose sight of himself and his own interests] and take up his cross, and [joining Me as a disciple and siding with My party] follow with Me [continually, cleaving steadfastly to Me].
    35For whoever wants to save his [higher, spiritual, eternal] life, will lose it [the lower, natural, temporal life which is lived only on earth]; and whoever gives up his life [which is lived only on earth] for My sake and the Gospel's will save it [his higher, spiritual life in the eternal kingdom of God].
    36For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world, and forfeit his life [in the eternal kingdom of God]?
    37For what can a man give as an exchange (a compensation, a ransom, in return) for his [blessed] life [in the eternal kingdom of God]?
    38For whoever is ashamed [here and now] of Me and My words in this adulterous (unfaithful) and [preeminently] sinful generation, of him will the Son of Man also be ashamed when He comes in the glory (splendor and majesty) of His Father with the holy angels.

Luke 24 (Amplified Bible)

" 1BUT ON the first day of the week, at early dawn, [the women] went to the tomb, taking the spices which they had made ready.    2And they found the stone rolled back from the tomb,
    3But when they went inside, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus.
    4And while they were perplexed and wondering what to do about this, behold, two men in dazzling raiment suddenly stood beside them.
    5And as [the women] were frightened and were bowing their faces to the ground, the men said to them, Why do you look for the living among [those who are] dead?
    6He is not here, but has risen! Remember how He told you while He was still in Galilee
    7That the Son of Man must be given over into the hands of sinful men (men whose way or nature is to act in opposition to God) and be crucified and on the third day rise [from death].
    8And they remembered His words.
    9And having returned from the tomb, they reported all these things [taken together] to the eleven apostles and to all the rest.
    10Now it was Mary Magdalene and Joanna and Mary the mother of James, and the other women with them, who reported these things to the apostles.
    11But these reports seemed to the men an idle tale (madness, feigned things, nonsense), and they did not believe the women.
    12But Peter got up and ran to the tomb; and stooping down and looking in, he saw the linen cloths alone by themselves, and he went away, wondering about and marveling at what had happened."
 

Matthew 28:2 (Amplified Bible)

"2And behold, there was a great earthquake, for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven and came and rolled the boulder back and sat upon it."
The resurrection of the saints, and their subsequent appearance to many (Matthew 27:52-53) After the Resurrection of Jesus Christ!

Matthew 27:52-53 (Amplified Bible)

"52The tombs were opened and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep in death were raised [to life]53And coming out of the tombs after His resurrection, they went into the holy city and appeared to many people."

  What we DO know ABOUT THIS HAPPENING is clear from the passage: 

Jesus dies with a loud cry, and remember Jesus has raised many during his ministry with his very word so this was the catalyst that set in motion the following event of raising the dead around his death.   

The veil of the Temple was torn in two from top to bottom, this could only happen as a result of God's hand ripping it from top to bottom, another proof that great energies were at work surrounding Jesus death. 

From
God’s Commentary on the Finished Work of Christ, Part 1: The Torn Curtain
Scholars are divided over which veil was torn in the temple because the temple contained two curtains. There was the outer curtain which separated the sanctuary from the forecourt (cf. Ex. 26:37; 38:18; Num. 3:26). This exterior curtain (the outer veil) covered the entrance to the temple structure itself and would have been visible to everyone facing that side of the temple. The innermost curtain (cf. Heb. 6:19) or the “second” veil (cf. Heb. 9:3) was the curtain that separated the Holy of Holies from the rest of the temple.
 
            The vast majority of commentators believe that the inner curtain was the one torn for the following reasons. First, the word used to describe the veil (Gk. katapetasma) most often refers to the innermost veil next to the Holy of Holies. Second, the author of Hebrews by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit interprets the suffering and death of Christ as the means by which believers enter the heavenly Holy of Holies. 

“Therefore, brethren, having boldness to enter the Holiest by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way which He consecrated for us, through the veil, that is, His flesh” (Heb. 10:19-20; cf. 6:19; 9:3). At the exact moment that our Savior died (i.e. when the veil of His flesh was rent by death; when His soul was severed from His body) God ripped the curtain of the Holy of Holies in half. The symbolic significance of the tearing of the inner curtain during the precise moment that our Lord died is scripturally unmistakable. Jesus and His completed work of redemption is the opened curtain, gate or door by which we enter into heaven and the special presence of God.

             To understand how dramatic the rending of the inner veil was we need to know how magnificent a curtain was involved. The curtain before the Holy of Holies was “40 cubits (60 feet) long, and 20 (30 feet) wide, of the thickness of the palm of the hand, and wrought in 72 squares, which were joined together; and these Veils were so heavy, that, in the exaggerated language of the time, it needed 300 priests to manipulate each. 

If the Veil was at all such as is described in the Talmud, it could not have been rent in twain by a mere earthquake or the fall the lintel, although its composition in squares fastened together might explain, how the rent might be described in the gospels.” Exodus 26:31 says that the curtain was beautifully embroidered with blue, scarlet and purple thread. It was to be designed with cherubim who likely represented angelic guardians who were shielding access to a thrice holy God.

            The purpose of the veil was to separate the special Shekinah presence of Jehovah from the people and even the regular priests who ministered in the temple. Only the high priest was permitted to enter the Holy of Holies behind the veil. This special entrance occurred only once each year on the Day of Atonement (Lev. 16:2ff; Num. 18:7; Heb. 9:7). On this day the high priest would pull back the edge of the curtain and enter the most holy place with the blood of sacrifice for himself and the people of Israel; then, he would sprinkle it on the mercy seat and before it. Under the old covenant administration the approach unto God was very restricted and this approach involved dread and fear. If any mistakes were made in the prescribed ritual whether intentional or not the person involved would be struck down by God. While the Day of Atonement pointed to Christ, the veil signified no admittance

The special approach to God was very rare and limited. To everyone (except the yearly approach by the high priest) the veil said stay away; do not enter. God is holy and you are sinful and polluted. “The time when the high priest entered into it, it was indeed turned aside; whereon it immediately closed again and forbade an entrance and a prospect unto others. Wherefore there could be no entrance into that holy place abiding, unless the veil was rent and torn in pieces, so that it could close no more."


 There was an earthquake of some sort (common for that area) but this one directly connected to the energies emitted from God's powerful hand at the Temple area. The rocks split (a more severe earthquake) 

Bodies of many (but not all) Jewish saints came back to life (of some type-natural or supernatural) They come out of the tombs in which they had been buried. 

They went into the "holy city" (undoubtedly Jerusalem) and became visible to many people (but not to all). 

The events above concerning the raising/appearing of the saints occurred AFTER the resurrection (most probable punctuation/division of the verse-see standard commentaries).

Please, if you are a skeptic, DO NOT swear or name call, if you cannot be civil then your comment will not be seen. If your evidence is that weak, then my point is made before you comment!

About Me

My photo

Before you look at the links below know this about me, I do not know everything about anything, I know only what God has revealed to me.

Proving God exists CANNOT be done for the person who is not open to hearing and seeing the evidence as God sees it. Faith is the KEY to releasing all the evidence contained in creation, in man's heart and his mind. Without FAITH no one can ever please God so to throw away faith as unimportant destroys our receptivity to the evidence!

I was a hypocrite, a sinner and a fool, sometimes even as a believer but as long as God is in control I'm forgiven and healed of every form of human shortcoming. Nothing can stand before the evidence contained in Faith.....NOTHING!

1987 Challenge to the National Academy of Sciences

  • Our open letter of March 24, 1987, to Dr. Frank Press, president of the National Academy of Sciences. Dr. Press claimed that "evidence for creationism" has been scientifically invalidated, though he well knew this has not been the case for the polonium-halo evidence. Our letter once again requests him and other evolutionists to publicly explain how the polonium-halo evidence for creation has indeed been invalidated, this time on April 13 at the University of Tennessee. We suggest that Dr. Stephen Gould be the first one to speak on behalf of the academy, given his strong language denouncing the term, "creation science." HTML GIF

  • Our Knoxville Sentinel ad on April 12, 1987, announcing our presentation on the evening of the 13th at the University of Tennessee. Included in the ad was a copy of the above open letter to Dr. Press. HTML GIF

  • A press release from the Society for Creation Science, announcing the reading of Dr. Press's written reply that evening, April 13, 1987, at the University of Tennessee. HTML GIF

Year 2000 Challenge to the National Academy of Sciences
  • Our letter of March 22, 2000, to Dr. Bruce Alberts, president of the National Academy of Sciences. Dr. Alberts claimed that evidence for special creation has been experimentally falsified.

  • This letter requests the Academy to publicly explain at Wichita State University on March 30, 2000, why it has chosen to reject the published evidence for the Genesis creation, evidence which after more than twenty-five years still stands unrefuted in the open scientific literature. HTML

Did you know that scientific evidence abounds to support the biblical accounts of creation and the flood?

Were you aware that reports outlining this evidence passed peer review, and were published in the open scientific literature?

Have you heard that, decades later, this evidence still stands unrefuted by the scientific community?






Watch a real debate about God right here!

Professors Richard Dawkins and John Lennox go head-to-head once again for another remarkable match of intellect.
This time, the same two Oxford Professors who debated in Birmingham's 'God Delusion' Debate are at it again on their home turf at the site of the famed 1860 Evolution debate between Huxley and Wilberforce.
