One tidbit was that the entire prophetic frame of the Bible (traversing many centuries) leading to him, pointed to him, but if that weren't enough, if
you took the time to watch the Real Star of Bethlehem video series, you would see that his life was also framed by the cosmos, and that there were
signs, one of which placed his work leading to the cross within the context of a precise schedule known well beforehand, both to himself and to his
cousin John. It's all in the thread, and in the title of the thread. Of course he was trained, and enlightened, and born again from above, but there's
more to his story than that, and more to his spirit, and the sorrowful wedge of his fated calling and destiny
, much more to it than just
another enlightened man. But with all that said, as he was called so too are we in following him as the authentic model of perfection and leadership
of the right kind, which comes to serve and not to be served. "And as my father first sent
me, even so send I you." But the student can never
be and needn't be as great as the master. There is something extraordinary about Jesus which IS contained in that thread, and don't blame me for
asking that people have to look for it and find it for themselves in discovery to really appropriate it's deeper meaning and significance. It can't be
any other way, or I'm just casting pearls before swine, allowing the greatest fact of human history, to be trampled under foot by ignorant and
hard-hearted people (no I don't mean you).
I've offered to answer any specific questions anyone might have, but no one's asking..
And to begin with, people would need to be willing to re-open their Bible and re-read the four Gospels with a newly inquisitive eye and a new type of
understanding which my thread can help to bring about for those who will.
Would you be willing to sit down and re-read the Gospels again, as if for the first time? Are you really open-minded about Jesus?
