Who Was Jesus Christ?

Who was Jesus Christ? Who was this astounding individual who taught peace, love and sacrifice for our fellows, and whose real-life legacy has unfortunately been responsible for more death and human suffering than all the plagues and pandemics in human memory? Well we know with reasonable certainty that he was the second son of a carpenter from Nazareth named Joseph, or possibly Yousef, that he may have also had female siblings and the numbers of his siblings contravene depending on the text.

jesuschristOn a purely personal level, when one digests his teachings, those vaunted lessons such as the golden rule, “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you”. “Turn the other cheek”, “Let he among you who is without sin, cast the first stone”, these are valuable humanistic lessons, but are they really holy concepts? Of course not. They are intrinsic human values that are essential to our survival as a species. Yes I agree that Jesus was a charismatic and unusually enlightened (especially for the times) individual, but to call him …

What would It Be Like To meet Jesus Face To Face.

Have you ever wondered what it would’ve been like to meet Jesus, face-to-face? I’ve always had an endless fascination for our Lord in his human form, especially in regard to his eyes. What color would they have been? Since He was a Jew from an arid climate, they probably would’ve been brown, but we can’t know for sure. Maybe they were as blue as an October sky or the clear green of emeralds. Maybe they had gold flecks in the iris or were a cool grey, rimmed with lustrous, black lashes.

I’ve always heard it said that the eyes are the windows of the soul. Can you imagine what it would have been like to gaze into the eyes of a man with a soul utterly free of the taint of sin, a soul so pure and unblemished as to have never known a single flicker of remorse, regret, guilt, or second thought? Can you imagine seeing in that gaze, the wisdom of the ages, the knowledge of Creation, the memory of heaven? Can …

Jesus Christ, King of Kings, and Lord of all

Posted by Roses on April 26, 2012

In all of human history, His life was the only one lived in complete perfection and utter innocence: not one single sin committed by thought, word, or act. He chose the company of society’s dregs, the poor, the prostitutes, the uneducated, and offered them everlasting life and healing. Time after time, he took a stand against the rich and powerful religious elite, and exposed them for the hypocrites they were.

For this crime he was sentenced to die the most horrendous and excruciating death ever devised by mankind. Mocked, spit upon, reviled, and cursed, he was beaten and scourged into a bloody pulp. When his torture was finished, he was barely recognizable as human, but they still weren’t done with him. In this weakened condition, he was forced to carry his death instrument to his place of execution, where stakes were pounded into his hands and feet, pinning him to a wooden cross.

There, he was suspended between heaven and earth, bleeding, sweating, suffering pain beyond imagining. The guilt of billions who’d lived before and …

Jesus Was a Living Breathing Man

I know some of you are not religious or believe in God ok, I’m not going to start witnessing to you but I just want to share with you some historical facts and some advice that may help you greatly.

Let’s put aside that the bible is holy scripture ok and look at it as a historical document. There are 5 sources outside of the bible by historians of the second century that witness to the events of a man called Jesus. These historians were adversaries of the Christian faith, they worked for the Roman Empire and the documents they created can be found in museums and religious archives that collaborate:

(1) Jesus was a living breathing man
(2) Jesus performed miraculous things
(3) Jesus was tried by a roman governor Pilate and sentence to be crucified
(4) Jesus was seen alive by 500 witness at one time and for 40 days after confirmed dead

Now to the bible. Remember we are looking at the bible as a historical document. In the Bible are documented …
