At his death he left unpublished papers "estimated to contain two-thirds of a million words on alchemy and a million and a half on theology" (Sambrook 1993: 17). He adds, "If the [Christian] message won converts, it would seem that most Nazis were probably [Christians] too. The history of Tamil Nadu has many more evidences of the “divide and dominate” policy of the White Church. The lights of the Christmas tree rose higher and higher, she saw them now as stars in heaven; one fell down and formed a long trail of fire.” —from “The Little Match Girl” Andersen’s fairy tales of fantasy with moral lessons are popular with children and adults all over the world, and they also contain autobiographical details of the man himself.

After the Cross is placed in the middle of the church, a figure of Christ is transfixed thereto with nails, then all venerate it. To put it another way, if we had been members of that group in Acts 12, and if we had been made aware of a recently executed Peter as a ghostly or spiritual presence with us, we would have concluded, certainly, that Peter was now alive with God.

D. 200 and known to the Jews as the “whole code of religious jurisprudence” (Bruce, 1953, p. 101). This analysis of Romans 1:1-4 has led to the conclusion that it is the sacred writings, the ‘window’ onto the spiritual realm, which have determined many of the features given to the divine Christ. Before the election, the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria encourages all Nigerians to vote, and its national president, Mike Okonkwo, supports Obasanjo, as does the Christian Association of Nigeria’s president and primate of the Methodist Church of God, Sunday Mbang.

In certain places at certain times, various rabbinates established local schools and influenced local movements, but as a whole, Judaism split into local factions, each struggling to maintain the tradition as best it could. Bruce thus declared: “It is a curious fact that historians have often been much readier to trust the New Testament records than have many theologians” (1953, p. 19). Because the Roman Catholic church opposed his translation of the Bible into English, Tyndale was forced to leave England for Germany in 1524.

And five of the top 10 countries with the largest Christian populations are either in Africa (Nigeria, Democratic Republic of the Congo and Ethiopia) or Asia (Philippines and China). The Judaic elements of his religion were, in time, nearly all eliminated, and the Pagan elements, one by one, were incorporated into the new faith. [9] So even if Jesus is a historical myth (ie was a flesh and blood man) you could have the issue of the Gospel narrative being essentially false and telling you nothing about the actual Jesus other than he existed; as Robert Price puts it "For even if we trace Christianity back to Jesus ben Pandera or an Essene Teacher of Righteousness in the first century BCE, we still have a historical Jesus." [10] The problem is that such a reductive historical Jesus is similar to Robin Hood or King Arthur, where the core person (if there ever was one to begin with) has been effectively lost, and potential candidates are presented as much as 200 years from when their stories traditionally take place.

For example, Crossan relies on some of the insights of anthropology to illumine agrarian peasant Mediterranean society, Richard Horsley and others use sociological data to understand Jesus as a radical political figure responding to economic and political persecution. Plenty of other religious followers have died for their faith, but the crucial point here is that the disciples would have known it was a lie, if they had stolen the body or made up the story.

Clearly this kind of study can be useful for the interpretation of biblical texts. All reasoning is based on presuppositions. The reason why this connection is lacking in the Qur’an is now quite easy to understand. The historical character of Jesus Christ is also attested by the hostile Jewish literature of the subsequent centuries. The extraordinary image of El Cid developed in this epic prevailed over the less fantastic, but more realistic, image of the religiously indifferent, intelligent, successful medieval military strategist and warrior.
