First of all Jesus is just as alive today as He was when He had two feet planted on this earth. Jesus is not in the past He is still with us today so to me the word "Historcial" just doesn't fit.

Well when all evil has been erased from this earth Jesus will come back to rule the Kingdom of God. The Bible says He will rule it with a rod of iron. This indicates Jesus will not allow the survivers to sin and get away with it. I figure there will be one very serious teaching session going on for some time. Even the survivers will need to be taught how to live their lives on this earth according to Gods plan for man. Jesus stated there were going to be some really hard times before this all happens. Jesus said; "If it were possible even the elect will be deceived". This indicates God will not allow the true believers to be deceived. These people that believe they are going to be taken out of all the hard time have a big surprise in store for them. According to Jesus' teaching it isn't going to happen that way. The day Jesus returns this entire world and all the people in it will see mankind for what they really are. Most people won't like what they see when they have to look at themselves through God's eyes.

so y does Jesus called as son of God by himself? is any prophecy fulfilled that son of God will be born? wat is the prophecy? how does it refer to jesus? May be jesus is a historical man who is not a son of virgin(a mistake done in translating the bible that jesus born of virgin mary, i think God's miracle of virgin birth is proved to be an error in Bible), he is(might be) a son of man who preached good things. God,the father will not tolerate anything he considers a sin as he killed(not punished) everyone except Noah's family in the flood (Genesis 7:23) and God drown the Egyptian army when they tried to kill the children of Israel(Exodus 14:28), which shows God the father who teached to kill some other to save ourself/someone(who is against us) or teaching avenging. WoW, wat a great God, the only one to say "thou shalt not kill" Anyway Jesus is wonderful as God too, Jesus sacrificed himself for being mercy to all of us. He forgive any sin that we do as Jesus in his 1st coming but in his second coming he will not forgive everyone because he will turn into God,the father's position(his wish to change his own rules, a dictator) It shows very well that he will change(but in bible it says "God is Love, he never changes"). He shall not be called as a god of mercy(no more). Unstable God!!!

Hi there dudleeLot. Try reading the bible and check the accounts of Jesus there. He's called history because all of His accounts are true. The places where Jesus went to were still there. But Jesus is not only confined in History. He is the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. He is everything. I pray that you'll have a personal encounter with Him too. =)

thanks dude :-) like u some of my christ believing friends asked me to read bible and ask my doubts. So i started reading bible, which makes things most horrible and it was amazing when i read it because one of ny friend told me bible is the only true and 100% guide to human life and 100% out of error. But in OT Genesis itself i got many more doubts from 2nd verse of its 1st chapter arised. God just roaming over the "EARTH"(name of earth mentioned before its creation, as there is still darkness prevails over the mentioned "EARTH", it means light is also not created so no other things including creation of earth is not possible or its not happened yet. But how could it b mentioned in OT. Pls see my other postings in mylot.com

But I think it is also important to read the literature according to the genre. I think you are not getting the Genesis as the author has intended it to be read. The Genesis text is not to be read employing some kind of wooden literalistic principle. You get into really big problem if you do that. When the writer was saying man's rib is used to make female, nobody interprets it literally.

He is not mythical as in the sense of not being historical. He is very much historical. There are historical evidences. There are scholars like Markus Bockmuehl (Cambridge Univ), Alister McGrath (Oxford), Richard Burridge ( King's College of Univ of London) Richard Hays (Duke Univ), Richard Bauckham (St. Andrews) etc. These are few scholars from top colleges. They have written lot of books on the matter. It'll be good to catch hold of some of their books. Blessings!
