The Resurrection: History? Legend? Whatever : Comments

By Rowan Forster, published 6/2/2019

What is the line between factual account and mere myth? Between history and legend? Between fact and fabrication? Between the literal and the figurative?

runner,

<<The resurrection of Jesus in bodily form occurred as far as I am concerned because I believe the Scriptures. Jesus foretold many times that He was going away for a short time and then returning.>>

I agree, but OLO is a non-Christian forum where antagonists want 'evidence'. I invite you to think outside of the box. How do we as Christians conclude in support of the bodily resurrection? From this reliable NT, what arguments would you provide to demonstrate that Jesus actually rose from the dead - was resuscitated.

<<There is (sic) tons of evidence of biblical events and locations.>>

In your post you provided no examples of these events and locations. Do you rely on archaeological evidence or from other historical sources?

<<The depravity of man is very clear for all to see. I include myself in this. Thanks for reminding me Galen.>>

I agree, but again you needed to supply examples to demonstrate your point. I hope by 'man' you meant mankind = men and women. Would you call the looting of property in the Townsville floods to be an example of the sinful depravity of human beings? How about the terrorists and their bombing around the world? What about the cheats at the Banking Royal Commission? Does it apply to the lies told by just about anyone, including adulterers who lie, deceive and con spouses?

Galen,

One of the rules of On Line Opinion is:

"Do not flame."

"Failure to abide by these rules may result in post deletion and/or account suspension. When a post is deleted a note explaining its deletion will be left in its place by the moderator. If you are suspended a note will also generally be left.

We normally delete the totality of any comment that breaches any of these rules. When only part of a post infringes the rules you may repost the parts that dont infringe". See: http://forum.onlineopinion.com.au/rules.asp

So, what did you write to runner?

<<You have confirmed to all your ineptitude and incompetence>>

You have flamed him! When will you quit flaming him, me and others on OLO?

OzSpen, who is this we you speak of?

As to flaming someone, well occasionally people deserve it.

Not-now-soon, the evidence of the mythical resurrection occurs twice a year, you can witness itself yourself if you wish, this is the hidden message in the bible, a book full of similar observations, taken from hundreds of prior ancient documents, try reading the Epic of Gilgamesh as an example. If you look at old Roman texts, Sumerian, Assyrian and other works which tell the same stories as those stolen and written into the bible. Its a pity the best bible writers did not understand the works they were plagiarising.

Galen,

Not on this forum where flaming is banned. Why won't you obey the rules to be able to continue posting?

Galen,

<<OzSpen, who is this we you speak of?>>

The 'we' is from the OLO rules. I presume it refers to the editor, moderators and/or owner of OLO. It would do you good to read the rules for engagement on this forum: See: http://forum.onlineopinion.com.au/rules.asp

<<As to flaming someone, well occasionally people deserve it.>>

On this forum, nobody deserves flaming posts against them. The rules say so!

Few do want evidence Ozspen. You have supplied tons. Creation screams at every god denier everytime they open their eyes. Any honest scientist knows the big bang is at best fantasy based on pseudo science. Every person has faith. My faith is in our Creator. The atheist faith is based on totally unprovable pseudo science. If they can't see the obvious no amount of research will convince a seared conscience and perverse heart.
