Hebrew Christians V Jesus of Rome
Trafford Publishing, 2003 - 321 pagina's
A new approach to the early history of Christianity to the fourth century. Beginning with a revealing study of God's purpose for the Jews and for mankind. It explores in depth the origins of religion and the virtually unknown (unmentioned) conflict between the destiny of Rome from Virgil and the destiny of the Jews from the Bible. A detailed examination of the civil laws of the Jews is contrasted with traditional religions, giving remarkable new insights into the beliefs and practices of the first Hebrew Christians.
It explores the unlikely conversion of Constantine, the surprising true origin of his amazing sign and it's role in the restoration of his church. To understand Constantine and his church, we need to understand Virgil. The book then questions how far the church adopted Christianity as the earliest disciples knew it, and how far the early faith was knowingly replaced by Constantine's religion, and why. It explores the conflict between discipleship and church as two distinct systems, one chosen by Jesus, the other a long standing Roman tradition. It re-examines the life and teachings of Jesus based on a Hebrew perspective and the relevance of Christianity today and provides an outline for tomorrow based on the hitherto unknown teachings of the early disciples. It also takes a compelling new look at the question of the divinity of Christ in the light of Hebrew beliefs in contrast to the influence of Virgil.
Along the way, the book discusses a number of crucial themes, such as the real identity of Joseph Arimathea, the other name of John the Baptist, and the possibility that Jesus was known by several different names in his own time. It also reviews (and answers fully) the new persecution of Christianity, the church D state question, and the many new theories and criticisms aimed against Christianity in the post modern world.
