Did anyone alive at the time of Jesus know what Elijah was supposed to look like?

Re: (Un) Conspicuous Appearances?
Avatar?

I think you've got the wrong religion there.

Re: (Un) Conspicuous Appearances?
Paul teaches that Jesus was an incarnation of God (despite many critics harping to the contrary). That is strong evidence that Paul believed in the Avatar doctrine and thus reincarnation.

I'm not feeling up to climbing your walls of text, so forgive me if you've already addressed this, but I'd like to see your evidence supporting this.

If you've already posted it, a link and copy paste will do. I'd like to discuss this aspect of your position more.

Also, I'd be interested in seeing where it is Jesus is described teaching reincarnation.

Re: Amazing example of willful ignorance ALERT!

I was trying no tactic.

I am genuinely interested in knowing what parts of Paul's writings make you think he believed in reincarnation and "the Avatar doctrine".

As for your quotes regarding Jesus in the OP - and this goes for when you present the Paul evidence as well - we have all (hopefully) read the books, often many times over. And we have not come to the conclusion you have. So simply quoting a few passages from the gospels isn't enough: You have to show how you get from the text we can all read to the interpretation only you see.

Re: I will keep this short.
This has nothing to do with the topic.

Re: But you reject Hebrews 11 jaywill.
Jesus mentioned reincarnation in more New Testament spots...

And what spots would those be?

Additionally, Jesus mentioned reincarnation more times than Paul...

Where did Jesus mention reincarnation?

Where did Paul?

At least Jesus seemed to predict that reincarnation would be difficult to swallow.

When did he predict that?
