The Beauty (and Harshness) of Winter in New Mexico-before the Fall of Mankind through Adam and Eve There was no Corruption
(A tomb of the 1st Century in Jerusalem)
1 Corinthians 15King James Version (KJV)
1 Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand;
2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.
3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
5 And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve:
6 After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep.
7 After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles.
8 And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time.
9 For I am the least of the apostles, that am not meet to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God.
10 But by the grace of God I am what I am: and his grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain; but I laboured more abundantly than they all: yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.
11 Therefore whether it were I or they, so we preach, and so ye believed.
12 Now if Christ be preached that he rose from the dead, how say some among you that there is no resurrection of the dead?
13 But if there be no resurrection of the dead, then is Christ not risen:
14 And if Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain.
15 Yea, and we are found false witnesses of God; because we have testified of God that he raised up Christ: whom he raised not up, if so be that the dead rise not.
16 For if the dead rise not, then is not Christ raised:
17 And if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; ye are yet in your sins.
18 Then they also which are fallen asleep in Christ are perished.
19 If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable.
20 But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept.
21 For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead.
22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.
23 But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ's at his coming.
24 Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power.
Variation Is NOT Evidence For Evolution And the Intrinsic Design And Its Variation Within A Common Framework Argues For An Intelligent Creator
Simcha Jacobovici, in his blog, wrote:
"...The final stop in my investigation was at the offices of Dr. Robert Deutsch. When it comes to ancient texts, he is considered by many the number one Aramaic and Hebrew epigrapher in the world. What does this text say, I asked? Without hesitating, Dr. Deutsch answered; “It seems that this is a text written by the followers of Jesus after the crucifixion. They are telling each other not to focus on the ‘nail’ and the ‘crucifixion’ as ‘their enemy’ does, and not to overly ‘mourn’ their loss but, rather, to focus on the ‘eternal light’,” mentioned at the end of the fragment." From article: see link below.
Note: Jesus Christ, as an historical figure, is well documented by the accurate narrative style of the gospel writers. The above archaeological find, if correct, supports the historicity of His life. But, what it may also indicate is that some of the Dead Sea Scroll writings may have been done by early Christians.
His deity as God come in the flesh is based on fulfillment of Old Testament prophecies, what He taught, and the miracles performed in the presence of many witnesses. Also, there are the testimonies of hundreds of millions of people, through the last 2000 years, from all the people groups of the earth that confirm that He still does physically heal, deliver from demons, restore lives. He works through His body the "Body of Christ" e.g. the true believing church.
An Acceptance of the Observations of Science and Belief in God were not Incompatible to Scientists that started the "Scientific Revolution"
