One posibility of the fatal head wound referring to the islamic religion and not to an actual man could be a fatal wound to the head of an empire or kingdom, like say to its governing body. In March of 1924, the Office of Calif, the governing body of the Islamic Empire for over 1400 years, was officially abolished. This could be the fatal head wound. And in the past few years, more and more muslim groups are calling for the revival of the the islamic caliphate. That could be the miraculous recovery of the fatal head wound. Just an idea.
When jesus says " I AM", in the book of john, he says eigo eimi, which is not the same as the grand " I AM THAT I AM" spoken by God. The pphrase spoken by jesus in the book of john is not the same words as attributed to God, but are translated into english as the same. It is a translation error, one of many.
And if this is the only example of jesus stating he is god, why wouldnt the other 3 gospels mention it..? they do not because it is not what has been purported.
The word becoming flesh refers to the act of creation, not to jesus specifically. ( LOGOS ), please read the Bible in original Greek or Hebrew, in some cases both, to understand the context of a particular word or phrase. Logos cannot be considered a person, it is an ACT as used in this context.
I have a sneeking suspicion jesus would not approve of the manner a book has been elevated to become more important than the teachings contained within.
It has always been a curious point that less than 1% of the bible is what Jesus actually says or does, but 99% intrepretation.
I imagine there are books somewhere that contain the missing 18 years of his life, but they do not jibe with the personae that the organized church wishes to portray jesus.
At first I was like what in the world is this guy smoking but it made the most sense as it actually says that in the bible when he comes from. So Apollo is the god of Anti-Christ. 666 anyone? Apollo is the fallen angel who is the Beast.
