Happy Rebirth Weekend!!!

Happy Ishtar, Eostre, Astarte, Ostera, Easter, Passover to all the supernatural believing folks and a happy Sunday to the rest of you.


  1. Just an fyi, the Catholic Church supports that over 400 people have been raised from the dead. I have a whole book on it. Unless you are talking about people who are being Baptized. Then its millions.

    Where did you get the assumption that Christians can only believe that Jesus was the only human resurrected by God?

    It would have been nice to see you on Sat. Night but had to work at the bookstore.
    You have to host some sort of a get together after Revelation.

    One question for now:

    Why are you reading the KJV and not the NKJV?

  2. Tom, where did you get that number about the Catholic Church and the dead? I'd love to see their criteria.

    I don't believe that Christians believe that only Jesus rose from the dead. Why would you say that? There are several stories in the bible with people raising from the dead. It's was a common plot device back then.
    Elisha and/or Elijah did it several times. They are the inspiration for Jesus' acts after all.

    I'm reading the King James Bible because A) it's the bible that all other modern bibles are based on. It's the 'original' version. B) it makes for a great blog title.

  3. > it's the bible that all other modern bibles are based on

    Not true. Bibles in many other major languages (e.g., French, German, Spanish) are translated either from the original texts directly or through the Vulgate (the early Latin translation). Even in English the Catholic translations do not generally go back through the King James version. The KJV however is the major Bible in the English language with a profound influence on literarture and culture.

  4. Apologies I should have said earlier manuscripts in the original languages (not original texts of which we have none) or the early Greek and Latin translations.
