Whoever argues with the biblical concept of a hero savior needs to take an unbiased look at the media, and an honest look at their own life.
- “Cast abroad the rage of thy wrath: and behold every one that is proud, and abase him.
- Look on every one that is proud, and bring him low; and tread down the wicked in their place…
- Then will I also confess unto thee that thine own right hand can save thee.” (Job 40:12-14)
But God himself couldn’t destroy Satan and take back dominion over creation because “…God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began” (Titus 1:2) to give dominion to humans, and God isn’t going back on his word.
“The heaven, even the heavens, are the LORD’s: but the earth hath he given to the children of men.” (Psalm 115:16)
YHVH’s / Anu’s delegation of earthly authority to humans is even begrudgingly acknowledged by the Sumerian pantheon, where Sumerian Enlil is the Hebrew Adam.
“And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit.” (I Corinthians 15:45)
Note the contrast between the two Adams. The first was made living by God. The last makes living by God. Life was transferred into the first Adam. Life is transferred out of the last Adam, because he is God himself. A human father couldn’t produce sinless, i.e. destructible, i.e. immortal, offspring.
Because Yeshua / Jesus got his male-determining chromosome, what we call the Y chromosome, from God, he is indeed the second Adam son of God, a second chance for a human son of God to come into existence as, and remain, holy, sinless, not condemned to death. His innocent death was therefore able to be applied to my account, to substitute for the condemnation and sentencing of my guilt.
“Yahweh’s Savior / Yeshua / Jesus the Son of God…was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.” (Hebrews 4:14-15)
“For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.” (II Corinthians 5:21)
“Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness. “(I Peter 2:24)
One major mutation that appears to have occurred “in the day” that death was imposed on the Adams is the Y sex chromosome that determines maleness. This is severely stunted when compared to the other chromosomes, appearing to have lost about 90% of the original genes.
The logical conclusion that the male sex chromosome, like the female, was mutated at the fall, is supported in scripture.
“Being born again, not of corruptible / changeable seed, but of incorruptible [seed] by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.” (I Peter 1:23)
“In the beginning…the Word was with God, and the Word was God. All things were made by him…In him was life.” (John 1:1-4)
- Adam, genetically in the future Seed of the Woman YHVH’s Savior / Yeshua, defeats Satan.
- All humanity, genetically in Yeshua, can defeat Satan – if they choose to.
- All humanity, genetically in Yeshua, can have dominion – if they choose to.
“For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in The Seed of the Woman / Consecrated One / Messiah / Christ shall all be made alive.” (I Corinthians 15:21-22)
“And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion…” (Genesis 1:27)
The Book of Enoch provides a powerful example of the LORD God delegating key actions to his human representative, the Melchizedek / Priest-King.
And it came to pass when the children of men had multiplied that in those days were born unto them beautiful and comely daughters. And the angels, the children of the heaven, saw and lusted after them, and said to one another: ‘Come, let us choose us wives from among the children of men and beget us children…Let us all swear an oath, and all bind ourselves by mutual imprecations not to abandon this plan but to do this thing’…And they were in all two hundred; who descended ⌈in the days⌉ of Jared on the summit of Mount Hermon, and they called it Mount Hermon, because they had sworn and bound themselves by mutual imprecations upon it.
Then the Lord said to me: Enoch, scribe of righteousness, go tell the Watchers of heaven…Then Enoch, passing on, said to Azazyel: Thou shalt not obtain peace. A great sentence is gone forth against thee. He shall bind thee; Neither shall relief, mercy, and supplication be thine, on account of the oppression which thou hast taught; And on account of every act of blasphemy, tyranny, and sin, which thou hast discovered to the children of men. Then departing from him I spoke to them all together; And they all became terrified, and trembled; Beseeching me to write for them a memorial of supplication, that they might obtain forgiveness; and that I might make the memorial of their prayer ascend up before the God of heaven; because they could not themselves thenceforwards address him, nor raise up their eyes to heaven on account of the disgraceful offence for which they were judged. Then I wrote a memorial of their prayer and supplication, for their spirits, for everything which they had done, and for the subject of their entreaty, that they might obtain remission and rest.
Providing external validity for this account, the following anciently recorded itinerary leads to Baalbek in Lebanon, one of the most famous pre-flood megalithic pagan temple sites.
Proceeding on, I continued over the waters of Dan-ba-dan, [Dan in Dan (Knibb, p. 941] which is on the right to the west of Armon / Hermon, reading the memorial of their prayer, until I fell asleep. And behold a dream came to me, and visions appeared above me. I fell down and saw a vision of punishment, that I might relate it to the sons of heaven, and reprove them. When I awoke I went to them. All being collected together stood weeping in Oubelseyael [Baal-bek], which is situated [in the Bekaa Valley] between Libanos [Lebanon Mountain Range] and Seneser [Anti-Lebanon Mnt Range, likely ancient meaning of evil] with their faces veiled. I related in their presence all the visions which I had seen, and my dream; And began to utter these words of righteousness, reproving the Watchers of heaven.(Enoch 12-13)
Sounds fantastical, mythological, doesn’t it? Like stories of a powerful wizard Merlin or Gandalf taking on the forces of evil. Is this possible?
This is in fact just how powerful one single human can be when connected to all-powerful Most High God.
Interesting that the viewers of hero-based programs don’t need to be religious or to read the Bible to recognize and identify with the concept of overcoming self-interest and fear of suffering and death in the struggle of good vs evil, and to acknowledge when justice is served.
Humanity needs a champion, just one individual who is connected to all-powerful Most High God that enables him to succeed where ordinary fighters fail, who can engage in single combat with the enemy in a duel to the death – winner take all.
I understand that we are not all healthcare providers and can’t see some body parts without getting flustered, so giving fair warning that in the linked film clip there is a quick glimpse of some of the organ used to establish the universal attribution of manhood. “I will cut off fro Jeroboam him that passeth against the wall.” (I Kings 14:10). You can avoid seeing anything distasteful by closing your eyes when the rider gets off his horse and undoes his fly.
I do think this enactment does a great job of bringing the ancient ways to life. If you watch the video clip from Game of Thrones, think f the rag-tag Israelite army coming up against Jericho, one of the greatest fortified cities of that time. Think of David and Goliath.
“And there went out a champion out of the camp of the Philistines, named Goliath, of Gath, whose height was six cubits and a span [9 ft 6 in].
- And he had an helmet of brass upon his head,
- and he was armed with a coat of mail; and the weight of the coat was five thousand shekels of brass.
- And he had greaves of brass upon his legs,
- and a target of brass between his shoulders.
- And the staff of his spear was like a weaver’s beam;
- and his spear’s head weighed six hundred shekels of iron:
- and one bearing a shield went before him.
And he stood and cried unto the armies of Israel, and said unto them, Why are ye come out to set your battle in array? am not I a Philistine, and ye servants to Saul? choose you a man for you, and let him come down to me. If he be able to fight with me, and to kill me, then will we be your servants: but if I prevail against him, and kill him, then shall ye be our servants…
And when the Philistine looked about, and saw David, he disdained him: for he was but a youth, and ruddy, and of a fair countenance. And the Philistine said unto David, Am I a dog, that thou comest to me with staves? And the Philistine cursed David by his gods. And the Philistine said to David, Come to me, and I will give thy flesh unto the fowls of the air, and to the beasts of the field.
Then said David to the Philistine…I come to thee [not with staves or metal armor but] in the name of the LORD of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom thou hast defied. This day will the LORD deliver thee into mine hand; and…the host of the Philistines...that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel. And all this assembly [including the faithless Israelites]…the battle is the LORD‘s.
David understood that behind the physical manifestation of Goliath, he was engaged in a spiritual battle. He tapped into, identified himself with, became one with all the power of creation when he proclaimed “I come to thee in the name / likeness, characteristics of the LORD.”
This is the same identification and empowerment of a law enforcement officer arresting someone “in the name of the law.” David understood that empowerment comes through the word / Word of God.
And David put his hand in his bag, and took thence a stone, and slang it, and smote the Philistine in his forehead, that the stone sunk into his forehead; and he fell upon his face to the earth…And when the Philistines saw their champion was dead, they fled.” (II Samuel 17:4-51)
As a giant capable of building megalithic structures, Goliath may have contributed to making the Philistine pentapolis the formidable adversary that it was to Israel. The following photo of a gateway in Malta is just one of many surviving examples of the massive city gates found throughout the world in early history, perhaps similar to the gate which Sampson “set at nought” when he carried aways its doors.
All the earth needs one unique individual like David to champion our salvation from destruction and death.
But, more than David, who, as we know, later fell into sin and brought more destruction on his people through his actions than that from which he had initially saved them. We need someone who can not only rescue us from the destructive forces of other people but also maintain the right(eous) state of union with God within ourselves.
And we have one.
“Keep / guard yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord YHVH’s Anointed Savior / Jesus Christ unto eternal life…him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory…the only wise God, our Savior.” (Jude 1:20-25)
The ultimate expression of the political concept of natality / new beginnings through birth is YHVH’s Promised Savior / Jesus Christ. He is the first Adams’ son and heir, accomplishing Creator God’s plan to make mankind in his image and righteous likeness. Because, unlike the first Adam, he remained sinless through his life, he qualifies to become the designated driver of the universe AND the representative Adam, The Prototype Human with who ALL humanity is identified through shared genetics.
“And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit.” (I Corinthians 15:45)
He brings about the
- permanent destruction of the Evil Empire and it’s ruler,
- complete redemption from sin and death from external and internal forces,
- and full restoration to hyper dimensional immortality for
Christians who believe in evolution have an extremely limited range of ability to believe in the Bible’s Savior. Whereas, anyone who believes that God physically created his first son Adam in his image and likeness has no problem understanding that God also fathered himself as the last Adam by creating the father’s DNA and placing it in the female egg. Jesus would be, like Adam before he became corrupted, the perfect son of God.
The real shocker here is not that God fathered his son, but that a mortal, imperfect human partnered in the creation of that being.
“the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth, To a virgin…and the virgin’s name was Mary. And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women…behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name Yeshua / YHVH’s Savior…the Son of the Highest…Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man? And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God…As he spake by the mouth of his holy prophets, which have been since the world began: That we should be saved from our enemies.” (Luke 1:26-72)
This is not a “Christian religion.”
God was not taken off guard when his prototype humans used the freedom he gave them to choose to explore their options, and suffered the consequences in their DNA, passed down to all their descendants.
“ye were…redeemed with…the precious blood of the Appointed One / Messiah / Christ…Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you…” (I Peter 1:19-20)
“the gospel according to the power of God…his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus / YHVH’s Chosen Savior before the world began, But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel:” (II Timothy 1:8-10)
Archeology has uncovered documents recording complex subject matters dating approximately a thousand years before Noah’s flood. It is irrational to believe that God spoke with Adam then waited until 2,500 years after creation and 800 years after the flood for Moses – not Adam or Enoch or Methuselah or Noah or Shem or Abraham or Joseph – to be the first person to record a history of creation, the fall and the plan of salvation.
That Adam and Eve must have understood the dual nature of the promised savior, and shared this information with their descendants is unarguably articulated in the account of Job’s experiences. This predates Moses’ first-hand account of the Exodus. Job provides fascinating insights into the most ancient times not included in Moses’ historically focused treatise.
While you’re at it, note the classic poetic drama medium of Job’s account, still popular centuries later in Greek plays. and even during Shakespeare’s productions. What percentage of the ancient population was literate do you think? Envision a live production just like the Epic of Gilgamesh or The Odyssey or Beowulf would have been passed down in the millennia before we had television.
Put some life into it! To help, I’m functioning as the choragos with the italicized headings to the narration, and I’ve left out all the clutter of the chapter and verse references.
Bildad advises Job to find an end to his suffering by consulting the sages from the classical civilization preceding their post-apocalyptic dark age. Obviously, this could only be done through their writings carried through the flood.
Then answered Bildad the Shuhite…enquire, I pray thee, of the former age, and prepare thyself to the search of their fathers / authorities, instructors…Shall not they teach thee, and tell thee, and utter words out of their heart [as we are taught by Job’s words uttered out of his heart and written down]?
Job points out that he can’t confront invisible God to argue his case so why bother?
Then Job answered and said…how should man be just / justified [in any conflict] with God? Lo, he goeth by me, and I see him not: he passeth on also, but I perceive him not.
If God will not withdraw his anger [referencing Enoch’s writings], the proud helpers [fallen angels, even as powerful and equally hyper dimensional as they are] do stoop under him. How much less shall I answer him, and choose out my words to reason with him?
Then Job remembers how the wicked angels got righteous Enoch to intercede for them.
[Hmmmm] Whom, though I were righteous, yet would I not answer – but! [instead] – I would make supplication [have an advocate plead on my behalf] to my judge. [After all,] If I had called, and he had answered me; yet would I not believe that he had hearkened unto my voice…For he is not a man, as I am, that I should answer him, and we should come together in judgment.
Job sinks back into self-pity and despair
Not fair! There should be a jury of my peers!
Hast thou [God] eyes of flesh? or seest thou as man seeth? Are thy days as the days of man? are thy years as man’s days?
Enter El-i-hu, “He (hu) is my (i) God (El)”
Then was kindled the wrath of Elihu the son of Barachel the Buzite, of the kindred of Ram: [unequivocally establishes he is human] against Job was his wrath kindled, because he justified himself rather than God. Also against his three friends was his wrath kindled, because they had found no answer, and yet had condemned Job...
Elihu reminds Job that God DOES understand the human condition because he is in man.
And Elihu the son of Barachel the Buzite answered and said [pointing his finger in outrage]…there IS a spirit in man: and the inspiration of the Almighty giveth them understanding…The spirit of God hath made me, and the breath of the Almighty hath given me life.
Oh you want an arbitrator, do you? Let’s do it!
If thou canst answer me, set thy words in order before me, stand up [like a man, you wuss!]. Behold, I am according to thy wish in God’s stead: I also am formed out of the clay.
But I’m taking God’s side – Prosecuting Attorney!
Surely thou hast spoken in mine hearing, and I have heard the voice of thy words, saying, [with lower lip pouting, mocking whiney voice] “I am clean without transgression, I am innocent; neither is there iniquity in me”…[Changes to thundering tone of voice] Behold, in this thou art not just!: I will answer thee, that God is greater than man…
Elihu mockingly throws Job’s words back at him
For God speaketh once, yea twice [euphemism for multiple], yet man perceiveth it not…
But where were YOU when his prophets like Shem spoke for him?!
If there be a messenger with him, an interpreter, one among a thousand, to shew unto man his [God’s] uprightness: Then he [God] is gracious unto him, and saith,
- Deliver him from going down to the pit: [salvation!]
- I have found a ransom. [redemption!]
- His flesh shall be fresher than a child’s: [resurrection!]
- he shall return to the days of his youth [be born again!]:
- He shall pray unto God, and he will be favourable unto him: he will render unto man his [God’s] righteousness. [restoration!]
He looketh upon men, and if any say, [unlike anything you’ve said so far, Job!] I have sinned, and perverted that which was right, and it profited me not; He will deliver his soul from going into the pit, and his life shall see the light.
This has been witnessed by HOW MANY HUMANS Job? Aren’t you listening?
Lo, all these things worketh God oftentimes with man, To bring back his soul from the pit, to be enlightened with the light of the living.
You are treading on thin ice, Job.
Job hath spoken without knowledge, and his words were without wisdom. My desire is that Job may be tried unto the end [given time to rethink / repent] because of his answers for wicked men. For he addeth rebellion unto his sin, he clappeth his hands among us, and multiplieth his words against God.
Then the LORD answered Job out of the whirlwind, and said, Who is this that darkeneth counsel by words without knowledge? Gird up now thy loins like a man; for I will demand of thee, and answer thou me. Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare, if thou hast understanding…Shall he that contendeth with the Almighty instruct him? he that reproveth God, let him answer it…Wilt thou also disannul my judgment? wilt thou condemn me, that thou mayest be righteous?
Job is put in his place
Then Job answered the LORD, and said, Behold, I am vile; what shall I answer thee? I will lay mine hand upon my mouth. Once have I spoken; but I will not answer: yea, twice; but I will proceed no further...I uttered that I understood not; things too wonderful for me, which I knew not.
I have heard of thee by the hearing of the ear: but now mine eye seeth thee [in your creation, but most of all in your spirit-filled humans]. Wherefore I abhor myself, and repent in dust and ashes.
But wait! There’s more to the concept of God in flesh than spirit-filled humans. God becoming flesh. This next section proves that ancient Job knew about the “Christian” plan of salvation through redemption of life for life, and restoration to the original immortality of mankind by resurrection.
“For I know that my redeemer liveth [in the present!], AND that he SHALL stand at the latter day upon the earth: And though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God: Whom I shall see for myself, and mine eyes shall behold, and not another [body’s eyes, refuting reincarnation].” (Job 19:25-27)
The Bible explains four dimensional humans cannot look upon multidimensional God and live. We cannot survive exposure to a blast of energy greater than an atomic bomb.
“And Moses said unto the LORD…if I have found grace in thy sight, shew me now thy way [customary condition, looks, like a bride in an arranged marriage unveiling herself to her husband], that I may know thee…I beseech thee, shew me thy glory / power encapsulated as in a portrait…
And he said, Thou canst not see my face: for there shall no man see me, and live….
Behold, there is a place by me, and thou shalt stand upon a rock: And it shall come to pass, while my glory passeth by, that I will put thee in a clift of the rock, and will cover thee with my hand while I pass by: And I will take away mine hand, and thou shalt see my back parts: but my face shall not be seen.” (Exodus 33:12-23)
In a completely unexpected move, YHVH’s Savior divested himself of hyper dimensionality and became four dimensional. He became the individual Job sought, a messenger to show humans the face of God, the express image of God, and the likeness of righteous God.
“God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds; Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high…Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of thine hands: They shall perish; but thou remainest; and they all shall wax old as doth a garment; And as a vesture shalt thou fold them up, and they shall be changed: but thou art the same, and thy years shall not fail.” (Hebrews 1:1-12)
The writers of the New Testament identify the same human being Yahweh’s Savior / Yeshua / Jesus in the New Testament as God himself in the Old.
“The Chosen Savior / Christ Jesus: Who…equal with God…
- made himself of no reputation,
- and took upon him the form of a servant,
- and was made in the likeness of men:
- And being found in fashion [mode] as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death…
Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name.
- That at the name of Yhvh’s Savior / Jesus
- every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;
- And that every tongue should confess that Yhvh’s Promised Savior / Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” (Philippians 2:8-11)
“Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else. I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return,
- That unto me
- every knee shall bow,
- every tongue shall swear.” (Isaiah 44:22-23)
- “In the beginning was the Word
- And God said
- and the Word was with God and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God.
- And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness
- All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
- Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made
- In him was life;
- And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life;
- as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name / YHVH’s Promised Savior
- and man became a living / connected to source of life soul.
- Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
- Now when all the people were baptized, it came to pass, that Jesus also being baptized, and praying, the heaven was opened, And the Holy Ghost descended in a bodily shape like a dove upon him, and a voice came from heaven, which said, Thou art my beloved Son; in thee I am well pleased. And Jesus himself began to be about thirty years of age, being (as was supposed) the son of Joseph, which was the son of Heli…which was the son of Seth, which was the son of Adam, which was the son of God.” (Luke 3:21-38)
- And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.” (John 1:1-14, Genesis 1-2)
As a hybrid with his Y chromosome contributed by God in its fullness, Yeshua / Jesus undoubtedly did not look like the 100% human men – neither the Europeanized version nor the anthropologist’s. We don’t have a portrait, but we do have a description of both his spiritual identity as God and his physical appearance by the prophet Isaiah in chapters 52-53.
- Therefore my people shall know my name / identity…
- “Jesus answered them, My Father worketh hitherto, and I work. Therefore…making himself equal with God.” (John 5:17-18)
- that I am he that doth speak:
- “I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak…whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father said unto me, so I speak.” (John 12:49-50)
- behold, it is I / LORD God himself…
- Jesus taketh Peter, James, and John his brother, and bringeth them up into an high mountain apart, And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light. And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elias talking with him. Then…a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son / the one to whom I delegated my legacy and authority, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him.” (Matthew 17:1-6)
- that saith unto Zion, Thy God / Elohayik reigneth!
- “it was the preparation of the passover, and about the sixth hour: and he [Pilate] saith unto the Jews, Behold your King!…Pilate saith unto them, Shall I crucify your King?…(John 19:3-15)
- The LORD / YHVH hath made bare his holy arm in the eyes of all the nations; and all the ends of the earth shall see the salvation / yeshua of our God / Elohenu…
- “the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved…verily, their sound went into all the earth, and their words unto the ends of the world.” (Romans 10)
- As many were astonied at thee; his visage was so marred more than any man, and his form more than the sons of men…
- For he shall grow up before him…as a root out of a dry ground:
- he hath no form nor comeliness;
- and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him.
This last section of Isaiah 52-53 is assumed to refer to Jesus’ appearance after he was beaten and crucified. Without question Jesus did display post-resurrection permanent physical wounds. But aren’t they more in keeping with battle trophies than shameful reminders? The sequence of events states that his marring occurs as he grows up…as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness…”?
We need to refocus our earth-bound imagination to the hyper-dimensional heavenly beings. Science fiction writers do a far better job than prim Sunday School teachers in translating the hyper dimensional biblical beings when they describe aliens from outer space.
Most of all, we should abandon our Sunday School coloring pages to take seriously what the Bible reports about the hybridization of hyper-dimensional heavenly “sons of God” and human women.
Jesus only lived to the age of 33. Would he have grown into a giant like those referenced in Genesis 6 if he had continued to grow? Does he have to live with human deformities for eternity because of the mismatch of immortal paternal genes and corrupted human genes (like acromegaly shown shown below as this individual aged)?
In Jesus’ experience as God crammed into a human body we shouldn’t assume that there were no metabolic and hormonal disorders when God’s perfect DNA could not match up perfectly with corrupted and mutated DNA.
Once resurrected into a newly formed body, however, he, as well as all resurrected sons of God, are glorious, beyond the “superman, the Ubermensch, imagined by Friedrich Nietzsche… the superior man, who justifies the existence of the human race…not a product of long evolution but emerging when any man with superior potential completely masters himself.
And “completely master himself” is exactly what Jesus did, and what all born again sons of God are to do – male and female – freely, not through oppression, paradoxically master ourselves by submitting ourselves to the will of the Father even to death, because we understand it is the right thing, the only way to be constructive and productive.
Does this image show Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane or Mary at the garden tomb? Both were prepared to lay down physical weapons in order to defy spiritual evil, and die physically in the process.
“Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him;” (I John 3:2)
“But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.” (II Cor 3:18)
Exactly what that image will look like, we don’t know, but it is highly unlikely that it will be our current image of either male or female. Some people get the idea, though.
“Mary stood without at the sepulchre weeping…and saw Yahweh’s Savior / Yeshua / Jesus standing, and knew not that it was Yeshua / Jesus [no longer crammed into a body unfit for God]…She, supposing him to be the gardener [who would need to be super strong to wrestle stone doors!], saith unto him, Sir, if thou have borne him hence, tell me where thou hast laid him, and I will take him away. Yeshua / Jesus saith unto her, Mary.”
On hearing and recognizing his voice, with a flash of insight into the teaching of resurrection, suddenly remembering the recent resurrection of Lazarus, she has an epiphany and “She turned herself, and saith unto him, Rabboni / My Great Master...” (John 20:11-16)
