  Today some claim that Jesus is just an idea, rather than a real historical figure, but there is a good deal of written evidence for his existence 2, years ago. The author takes us into India and Kashmir along the old Silk Road and comes very close to revealing the documents that have been viewed in the past by others concerning the Lost Years of Jesus Christ. I enjoyed all of his explorations from his past to the present in the book Reviews: To make disciples of Christ, though, they had to witness concerning Jehovah’s name and Kingdom, for that is what their Exemplar, Jesus, had done. (Luke ; John ) Those who accepted Christ’s teaching and became disciples thus became Christian witnesses of Jehovah. Furthermore, even if all witnesses wrote their testimony (highly unlikely) the laborious effort required to hand make many copies would be made only for the most authoritative testimonies. Testimonies of which only a few copies were made would be lost over time. (2) The early Christians thought that Jesus was coming back very soon.

Regarding the purpose of The Watchtower, it says that among other things, this magazine “promotes faith in Jesus Christ, who died so that we might gain everlasting life and who is now ruling as King of God’s Kingdom.” Tim: Well, there you go. Right in your own magazine is proof that Jehovah’s Witnesses believe in Jesus. Anthony: Precisely. -- Jesus Christ (Mt) Jesus spoke the words above to His disciples just days after He had risen from the dead. We commonly call these words “The Great Commission.” In this charge, Jesus commands all His people of all time to their great task - that of making disciples. If you have turned from sin to trust Christ fully, then you are. The message of love that Jesus gave is more important than the life and person of Jesus. Anil Chawla looks at Jesus from the perspective of a Hindu. He calls for liberating Jesus from the church and the clergy. He accepts Jesus as a Son of God but does not accept the Bible. Works which are particularly recommended for further study of the Book of Revelation are emphasized. Aland, Kurt and Bruce M. Metzger. The Greek New Testament. Stuttgart, Germany: German Bible Society. 3 references. The Revelation of Jesus Christ. Chicago, IL: Moody Press. 39 “The Two Witnesses in Revelation ” In.

Buddhism: On the Rise in the West. I t was only years ago that there was virtually no knowledge of Buddhism in the West. But during the nineteenth century this has changed dramatically and the Buddhist tradition has succeeded in generating great interest and attracting large numbers of Westerners to its ideas and lifestyle.[] The reasons for this attraction are many and varied, some of. But if Jesus Christ didn't come back to life, it undoes His claim to be the all-powerful, eternal Son of God, Savior and Messiah. So, Christianity hangs on the Resurrection.   The truth is that Jesus is not only documented in the eye-witness testimony compiled in the New Testament, but He is mentioned as a historical person by several non-Christian sources within years of His life. From those sources, we can learn 10 things about Jesus without even opening a .   The mob of beat the two Witnesses for over an hour, and verbally abused the two, threatening to kill them and shouting vulgarities about them, their families, Christians, Jesus, and Mary. They then took the two Witnesses to a public street where a crowd of took part in the beating, tearing the Witnesses’ clothes off until they were.

Indian witnesses to Jesus Christ. Bombay: Bombay Tract and Book Society, (OCoLC) Material Type: Biography: Document Type: Book: All Authors / Contributors: Parumootil Joseph Thomas. First, there is the witness of God the Father. In John b, Jesus said, “The Father who sent me bears witness about me.

Jesus, God the Son, also bore witness to Himself. He said, “If I do bear witness about myself, my testimony is true, for I know. This German book is a thorough, methodical and authoritative examination of the evidence of Christ's life beyond the Middle East before the Crucifixion and in India and elsewhere after it.

This article is a summary of Kersten's exhaustive research into Christ's travels after the Crucifixion, his arrival in India with the Mother Mary and finally.

Rather, you can introduce yourself and say, “I am a disciple of Christ, and I wish to introduce my ‘Guru’ to you.” Then you will have a welcome hearing as Christ is accepted and venerated as a “Guru par excellence” by most Hindus. Probably the best place to begin is to talk about Jesus.

Therefore, since we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us also lay aside every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne.

Jesus and Empire: The Kingdom of God and the New World Disorder Richard A. Horsley (Fortress) $ There are numerous books that open up the relationship of the violent empire of ancient Rome and the subversive practices of the early Jesus community – you may have read of John Dominic Crossan who gets some of this pretty right, or Marcus.

Early Non-Christian Witnesses to Jesus Christ by 100 Indian witnesses to Jesus Christ book M. Haines. Often we think all the witnesses to Jesus Christ are found in the Bible.

There are several early statements made by non-Christians that bear witness to Him. These are given below. Emperor Tiberitus () or Claudius () issued an edict against grave robbing. Eyewitness testimony of the resurrection, as recorded in the New Testament, is the basis of faith in Jesus as Christ.

In John and ActsJesus tells His apostles that they were to be witnesses. Peter speaks to the others in Acts 1 of David's prophecy that God swore He would bring forth Christ and raise Him up.

Peter said (Acts How can you come to know Jehovah better. 15 You can learn a lot about Jesus, his life, and his qualities by reading the Bible books of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.

Those books are called the Gospels. Because Jesus is just like his Father, what you read will also help you come to know Jehovah better. That is why Jesus could say: “Whoever has seen me has seen the Father also.”. The fruit of righteousness comes through Jesus Christ, Phil.

; Jesus delivers us from the wrath to come, 1 Thess. ; Disciples bear witness of Jesus Christ, John ; Jesus died for us, 1 Thess. ; Jesus died and rose again, 1 Thess.

; Jesus was a ransom for many, Matt. ; The Christian dead have fallen asleep in Jesus, 1. chapters in books, but books within the context of the Bible.

This book, by some of the most respected scholars in the world, rightly argues that the context of every biblical verse is the scriptural witness to Jesus Christ and his gospel. I commend this fine work to.

The old Indian chief was very moved by Christ’s sacrifice and decided to do something for the Lord Jesus. So he rose to his feet, walked up to the missionary, laid his tomahawk at the missionary’s feet, and said, “Chief give his tomahawk to Jesus.” Then he went back and sat down.

Sathya Sai Baba (born Ratnakaram Sathyanarayana Raju; 23 November – 24 April ) was an Indian guru and philanthropist, born into a Telugu - speaking Bhatraju family.

At the age of fourteen he claimed that he was the reincarnation of Shirdi Sai Baba, and left his home in order to serve the society and be an example to his followers. Sathya Sai Baba's materialisations of vibhuti (holy. Since the birthplace of Jesus is too far from the Indian subcontinent, there is a viable chance for him travelling to India or Tibet.

All the story of Jesus is mythological like Indian mythology. Hence, there is solid proof that Jesus Christ came to India and has made a deep study of Hindu religion.

Regarding the Ezekiel 37 prophecy, the church teaches that the Book of Mormon is the stick of Ephraim (or Joseph) mentioned and that the Bible is the stick of Judah, thus comprising two witnesses for Jesus Christ.

The church believes the Book of Mormon to be a collection of records by prophets of the ancient Americas, written on plates of gold. The emphasis on Jesus’ resurrection led church historian Philip Schaff to conclude (History of the Christian Church [Eerdmans],cited by Josh McDowell, Evidence That Demands a Verdict [Campus Crusade for Christ], p.

), “The resurrection of Christ is therefore emphatically a test question upon which depends the truth or falsehood.

In my native India, we Hindus talk about Jesus, but we don't call the day he was crucified Good Friday--even though to us it's a "good" day because his death probably led to another reincarnation.

Match events in Jesus’ life to the Bible prophecies that prove him to be the Messiah and to the chapters in this book where they are considered.

The Areas Where Jesus Lived and Taught This map shows where Jesus carried out his ministry. From this account, we know Jesus had an immediate impact on His followers: They were committed to their belief Jesus was God and withstood the torment and punishment of the Roman Empire.

Jesus had a curious and immediate impact on His followers, empowering them to die courageously for what they knew to be true. Lucian of Samosata: ( A.D.). 4 Amazing Stories of Martyrdom and Costly Discipleship These four people knew the cost to follow Jesus and were ready to give witness to Christ, even in the face of persecution.

Jesus’ Lifespan According to Irenaeus. According to Irenaeus’s chronology, Jesus lived to be somewhere between 44 to 57 years old (though for reasons discussed in our previous article, the very late 40s to very early 50s is the most likely). AH places Christ’s birth at the 41st year of Augustus’ reign, so this would be around 3 BC.

Share your personal faith in Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. Keep your testimony short. (See here to learn how to write your testimony). Stress the uniqueness of Jesus Christ as God's revelation of Himself.

Stress the necessity of following Jesus to the exclusion of all other deities. Keep the gospel presentation Christ-centered. This compelling book presents irrefutable evidence that Jesus did indeed live in India, dying there in old age.

The result of many years of investigative research, Jesus Lived in India takes the reader to all the historical sites connected with Jesus in Israel, the Middle East, Afghanistan and s:   Unfortunately, Jesus has been poorly represented by many of his followers.

I am not saying that I am the perfect Jesus Follower—I am not. But if we (those who follow the teachings of Jesus) could represent him authentically, the term "Christian" or "Christ-follower" would be more likely to illicit a positive response than a negative one.

The Jesus Film is a great way to share the gospel in the "heart language" of your Native American neighbors. Campus Crusade for Christ has produced this beautiful film of the gospel of Luke and translated it into over languages, including Western Cree, Eastern Canadian Inuktitut, Navajo, and.

The followers of the Watch Tower Society adopted the name Jehovah’s Witnesses in The Deity of Christ. Christians. Christians affirm the deity of Jesus Christ, teaching that in the incarnation, “the Word became flesh and dwelt among us ” (John ). The Son of God became truly man, while continuing always to be truly God.

She also adopted a number of orphans, leading around to safety during the Japanese occupation, and became known as 'Ài Wěi Dé', meaning 'Virtuous One'. She died aged 67 inand her story was made into a film – ' The Inn of the Sixth Happiness '. These and the first several converts somehow witnessed an apparition of the resurrected Christ on this day, as well.

Or perhaps the manifestation of the “Spirit of Christ” is counted as an apparition of Christ by Paul. The majority position is (2) that this happened in Galilee when the Apostles went back to Jerusalem to witness Christ. Christ: The title "Christ" is derived from the Greek Christós and means "the anointed one."It is used in Matthew "Then he strictly charged the disciples to tell no one that he was the Christ." The title also appears at the very beginning of the Book of Mark: "The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.".

Jesus offered for his body to be touched at least three times and he was definitely touched twice. Jesus showed witnesses the scars from his crucifixion on two occasions and ate food with his disciples 3 – 4 times. In four instances, witnesses responded to their encounter with Jesus by worshiping him.

Thus his overall objective in his post thought was to find common witness from the vedas and the Bible to the Divine mission of Jesus Christ.

His interpretation of Jesus is self-confessedly ‘rigidly historical,’ based solely on ‘facts,’ and ‘of itself excludes theories and speculations of .I was sitting in Hemis, in Northern India, when the abbot of the Buddhist monastery said to me “You know Jesus studied here.” I was traveling with Robert Thurman to Ladakh to visit the region, which is like visiting Tibet (without the soldiers).

I.The conviction that Jesus is the Christ occurs only when God, the Eternal Father, manifests the truth of it “by the power of the Holy Ghost.” (Moro. ) To the prayerful and the sincere, the Book of Mormon bears a powerful testimony that “Jesus is the Christ, the Eternal God.” Table 1.
