A God cannot die, Jesus did. And Jesus rose from the dead. And the message is "all humans will rise from the dead".

Yeah but Jesus was walking around like a ghost after he died, talking to people n'stuff. We aren't all gonna do that!

Re: Like a Ghost?
None of the other endings would have sufficed.

I agree.

Maybe ghost wasn't the best word, but wasn't he walking through walls or appearing out of nowhere? <--- ghost-like

Also there's that part in John where he tells Mary Magdeline not to touch him yet...

It is almost the final lesson that Jesus taught.

So how do you get that:

quote:
And the message is "all humans will rise from the dead".

from the story. I mean, we aren't all gonna do that.

Re: Like a Ghost?
The point of the story, IMHO, is not that we would return here but home, that the life after death will be one of substance, one of reality.

Cool, thanks for sharing.

I haven't gotten around to reading the Bible and comming up with a better "customs" anology yet but Ihaven't forgotten about it.
