Paul and the Acts of the Apostles also contain information about Jesus. Christ is merely a title, which means ?anointed? and can be anyone or anything anointed with oil or ?christened?. This could be a king or queen, any Prince or Princess, and Navy ship, or an auto mechanic. Christ comes from Krishna, a crucified heathen and pagan god in India, who lived long before the Messiah, YAHOSHUA, 200 years before.
Remember, it was when Yahweh commanded Lucifer to bow down to His son, Yahoshua, that Lucifer ? according his ego ? rebelled, refused, and was cast out of heaven. No man or woman can reject and deny Yahoshua [his Way] and expect to enter into the Kingdom of Yahweh! It would be contrary the nature of Yahweh and Yahoshua for a non-believer to have entrance into the Kingdom of Yahweh. The man [ego], adversarial, Satan, Babylonia religions, commercial jurisdictions, churches and congregations are, in fact, worshipping and performing according to a suppressor, i.e., ego, not Truth, and deny themselves the coming of the King of Kings and Kingdom!
Boy oh boy, lady, you are something. You want to throw away the old testament and now the first four of the new.No religious person would make such statements..A cult would though. So would an angel of satan.Did you know about or just conviently forgot to tell this forum that the greek historian, Josephus, a non christian, wrote about John the baptists, Jesus and Jesus brother, James? Oh, you forgot to say that eyewitness accounts from those that were with Jesus and put in manuscript form and has been handed down over the years and that are in several different languages, are still preserved today?
AGFH- Alberto is right they do exist as they are known. Whether they are real or just a written account by someone is the toss up. Here it stems all on your faith. Whether it is real or not you should not discuss these things on a public forum and on that one i would argue my last breath. It is a taboo subject. Will not change the mind of anyone. If they believe they will always believe. Each person has to have his or her own way of believing in something. This is a topic that is disagreed upon and can never be solved. So we know how you feel i hope you do not cont. with it..
It sounds like you need to read the book "The Biggest Secet" By David Icke. A very interesting one i assure you.
Even if the texts supported the notion that the apostles wrote them, consider that the average life span of humans in the first century came to around 30, and very few people lived to 70. If the apostles births occured at about the same time as the alleged Jesus, and wrote their gospels in their old age, that would put Mark at least 70 years old, and John at over 110.
The most "authoritative" accounts of a historical Jesus come from the four canonical Gospels of the Bible. Note that these Gospels did not come into the Bible as original and authoritative from the authors themselves, but rather from the influence of early church fathers, especially the most influential of them all: Irenaeus of Lyon who lived in the middle of the second century. Many heretical gospels got written by that time, but Irenaeus considered only some of them for mystical reasons. He claimed only four in number; according to Romer, "like the four zones of the world, the four winds, the four divisions of man's estate, and the four forms of the first living creatures-- the lion of Mark, the calf of Luke, the man of Matthew, the eagle of John. The four gospels then became Church cannon for the orthodox faith. Most of the other claimed gospel writings were burned, destroyed, or lost."
