A third, less obvious but also important, factor that can obscure the Ascension is certain modern biblical scholarship. The entirety of the paschal mystery of Jesus culminating with his ascension into heaven makes this possible. This mystery of our salvation and sanctification in Jesus Christ is at the heart of the life, mission, and identity of the Church. Jesus Christ, the one priest of the new and eternal Covenant, “entered, not into a sanctuary made by human hands. The Ascension of Jesus reveals both the union of heaven and earth in the Incarnate person of Our Lord Jesus Christ.
To the detriment of Christ and human understanding of Him, there have been numerous efforts to reduce Christ to a particular archetype. In the following work, I will discuss some of these archetypes and show the reasoning behind them, and, with the exception of one, show why each of these archetypes is an error. Of all of the archetypes regarding Jesus, this one is the most likely to reduce Jesus to an abstraction. Like the other archetypes, Jesus as an insurrectionist requires one to ignore most of the Scriptures. Jesus as GodI have thus far written derogatively of the various archetypes that have come to be applied to Jesus.

But it was in 2002, at the death of her husband, that Anne committed herself to Christ. In fact, Anne Rice goes even further.
During that period, there were three cinematic representations of Christ: The Gospel According to St. Matthew (1964); The Greatest Story Ever Told (1965); and Jesus Christ Superstar (1973). In the end, his presentation of Christ is an odd mix of the miraculous — or is it simply the bizarre? … My film is the life of Christ after 2,000 years of stories on the life of Christ. The final film that closes the era is Jesus Christ Superstar. … We were all reading the Aquarian Gospel of Jesus the Christ.” That 1908 work by Levi Dowling had found a new readership in The Sixties.
THE QUESTION;Did Jesus Exist? University of North Carolina Professor Bart Ehrman, author of “Did Jesus Exist?” (2012) and rather skeptical himself, knows of only one such thinker among thousands of scholars with Ph.D. degrees who are working in this field. John Remsburg, a 19th Century superintendent of public instruction for Kansas, backed mythicism by listing 42 ancient authors never wrote about Jesus. We’ll bypass a possibly relevant letter of Mara bar Serapion to his son, which does not mention Jesus Christ by name and has an uncertain date of composition. There’s a similar problem of tampering with the material about Jesus in Josephus’ Jewish War (ii).

The Chinese Rebel Who Claimed To Be Jesus Christ’s Younger Brother The intriguing life journey of the “Son of God” — Hong Xiuquan Hong Xiuquan. But after Xiuquan failed the test for the third time, he was a complete wreck. He introduced Xiuquan to his holy family, including his brother, Jesus Christ. The rise of Jesus Christ’s brother Around that time, Xiuquan’s cousin, Feng Yunshan, presented him with some pamphlets about Christianity. As part of his mission to slay the ‘demons,’ Xiuquan started preaching Christianity to different villages.
The debacle has sharpened domestic public criticism in the US of such “forever” foreign wars and “nation building” exercises. In the meantime it is sad to see suspicion raised as to the military role and hidden “conspiracy” theories floated. At the end of the 30 year armed conflict, a grateful nation gave its support to the armed forces which had fought with scarce domestic resources, supplemented by assistance from longtime friends like China. But this had been accomplished in cooperation with other associated organizations, both government and private, foreign and international agencies, such that no controversy had arisen. If not, an impression will be created of impunity which is what has led foreign governments, pushed by an active diaspora, to sanctioning military leaders for command responsibility.
The apostles were 12 of the disciples of Jesus who went on to spread his message and found the early Christian church. The Gospels of the New Testament and the Acts of the Apostles describe a core of twelve followers of Jesus that were closest to him. We are told of several apostles being arrested for their activities spreading the message of Jesus. While the followers of Jesus who left Jerusalem spread his message, the apostles who remained there had to decide exactly what that word was. The Apostle Thomas is supposed to have journeyed furthest in his preaching.
