Click here for previous session     Messiah (Christ) The Old Testament teems with prophecies of the Messiah, but nowhere is it intimated that that Messiah is to stand as a God to be worshipped. He is to bring peace on earth, to build up the waste places, to comfort the broken­hearted, but nowhere is he spoken of as a deity. —Olympia Brown, first woman minister ordained in the U.S., Sermon of 13 January, 1895.   The concept of Jesus being the predicted messiah is so well known to the world of Christianity as to obviate...

Click here for previous session       Return of Jesus   If Jesus Christ were to come today, people would not even crucify him. They would ask him to dinner, and hear what he had to say, and make fun of it. —D.A. Wilson, Carlyle at his Zenith There is one thing upon which Christians and Muslims agree, and that is the return of Jesus Christ. Interestingly enough, both religions expect Jesus to return in a victory of faith to defeat the Antichrist, correct the deviancies in religion, and establish the truth of God throughout the world. Christians expect this truth to echo their evolved doctrines, whereas Muslims expect Jesus to remain consistent with his...

Click here for previous session     When all else fails, John 10:30 relates Jesus as having said, “I and the Father are one.” Short, succinct, to the point, and terribly flawed. In this verse, the manuscript Greek for the English “one” is heis. 139 This word also occurs in John 17:11 and 17:21­23. John 17:11 reads, “Holy Father, keep through Your name those whom You have given me, that they may be one as we are” (italics mine). Literal or metaphorical? John 17:21 reinforces the metaphor with the words, “That they  all may be one, as You, Father, are in me, and I in You, that they  also may be...

Click here for previous session   And in any case, the list of candidates for “son of God” begins with Adam, as per Luke 3:38: “Adam, which was the son of God.” Those who rebut by quoting Matthew 3:17 (“And suddenly a voice came from heaven, saying, ‘This is My beloved son, in whom I am well pleased’”) have overlooked the point that the Bible describes many people, Israel and Adam included, as “sons of God.” Both 2 Samuel 7:13­14 and 1 Chronicles 22:10 read, “He (Solomon) shall build a house for My name, and I will establish the throne of his kingdom forever. I will be his Father, and he shall...
During the time of the Prophet, not everyone was able to meet him physically. Many people heard the message from loved ones, or some random dude walking by. There was an instance an old woman was advising a young...
