The Ancient Tablet

Over the weekend, most of you probably heard, there was the release of information on an Ancient tablet which speaks of a coming Messiah.  The tablet, though it was found ten years ago, apparently got some type of story line hype because the good ole NY times released this article here.

Tablet

The gist of the article speaks of what the tablet says and how it will effect Christianity.  The tablet speaks of a coming Messiah who will rise again after three days.  How is this shocking to Christianity as the article claims that it is shocking?  They claim that this proves that the story of Jesus was taken from earlier Jewish stories, and that this tablet probably refers to a Jewish man named Simon.  

I haven’t studied on this issue as much as I would like to, but to me, it screams loudly how the secular world can’t stand the thought that the Christian faith is true.  Here we have a biased article where someone says, “See, this came before Christ, therefore it can’t be true.”  They operate from the framework that the Bible is not true, thus they discount the HUNDREDS of prophecies we find in the Old Testament.  

I recommend you read the article, and if anyone wants more information about something in the article, or who this Simon character is said to be, or anything specific whatsoever, let me know so I can do some research on it and get back to you.  Plus, it would make a great post topic.  And, it helps me to study more.

    People are dumb. They didn’t believe in Jesus when He did miracles in front of their face, and they don’t believe when evidence screams at them. ER.

    I only have 4? channels and haven’t been watching much. I hadn’t heard about this tablet. Thanks for the info.

    Yeah, who is this Simon they believe it to be?

    Um???

    Jesus Saying He will Ressurrect his Temple in Three days.
    Is what all Cultures have been Practising since Mankind was First Created by Mother Earth,

    Every Culture has a Three Day Waiting/Wake Period after The Passing onto the Next Stage of Eternity.

    There is Nothing New or Spectacular in what Jesus was Saying. Its Common Practise in every Culture.

    Everyone has Three Days to rebuild Their Inner Temple.
    The Quality of The Rebuilding Depends on How Much LOVE we Gave.

    Each Infinite Spirit Diffuses their Physical Bonds to Earth and Rebuilds Their LOVE in order to Return to The Heavenly Spirit Realms.

    There have been Many other Enlightened Beings from all Creeds who have actually Ressurrected Fully into Living Spirits, as Jesus Did.

    Perhaps when Christians understand That we are all Part of The Infinite Universe. They May Stop Their Trumpet Blowing Long enough, to Join The Rest of Humanity in Celebrating what our Ancestors have Known since the Dawn of Evolution.

    Peace, Light and LOVE 🙂
