THE RE-RESURRECTION OF JESUS

THE RE-RESURRECTION OF JESUS
© Farouk Asvat

THE RE-RESURRECTION OF JESUS,
THE MYSTIFICATION OF THE MYTH
& THE DISTORTION OF THE TRUTH

            And now, suddenly, after more than 60 years, there is a return to stories from The Bible:
Noah, Exodus; A.D: the story continues and The Messengers.  And now even, Lucifer, is coming to a screen near you. 

            A.D: the story continues went to ludicrous lengths to tell the story of the apostles.  Historically and biblically completely inaccurate, it portrayed Peter as possessing the powers of life and death - and the disciples too had miraculous powers of healing - powers which were given exclusively to the Messiah by God.  The series also strongly conveyed the idea that contributing all your wealth to the Church, at the risk of death by Peter, was a requirement of Christianity: this is ludicrous, since Jesus absolutely rejected the concept of accumulating wealth - as quoted several times in the Gospels. 

            The Messengers was an extremely pitiful attempt to portray the idea of satan and the four horsemen of the apocalypse in an endless battle for souls - the good guys suddenly realizing they were "angels," sprouting massive wings, and having super powers. 

            The last time there really was an attempt to capture stories from the Bible was the 1960's: The Greatest Story Ever Told and The Ten Commandments were quite genuine attempts at portraying the stories from The Bible - a time when movies still stuck to being true to the original texts or history, at the risk of a hail of criticism - unlike the modern concept of being totally irresponsible by portraying invented versions not only of fiction but of historical facts as well - having no basis in the original texts. 

            Besides the movies which Christians considered extremely controversial: 1970's Jesus Christ Superstar; 1980's The Last Temptation Of Christ; Mel Gibson's pornographic display of violence in The Passion Of The Christ; and the cartoon portrayal of Moses and Pharaoh, it has become completely unfashionable in the western media to promote anything resembling religion - and yet the western leaders fall back on it whenever it suits them. 

            But now, after losing the wars in Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria, and the number of casualties - both dead and maimed - Americans and Europeans need to be reassured that there is life after death, that there are American superheroes out there battling against Satan, and Muslims.  So once again the reassurance that resurrection is a reality or at least a possibility. 

            Or is it merely an attempt by some sectors of society for a return to Christian values? - which might partly be good, if it is spiritually motivated, as Pope Francis is trying to do within the confines of the Church - since it would be a return to a semblance of morality in a western world consumed by rampant materialism and become devoid of all morality. 

            However, overall, there is no attempt at promoting spiritual Christianity in the media.  Instead Good Friday and Easter Monday have been replaced by "easter" eggs and bunnies.  Christmas in parts of Europe is all about Saint Nicholas and Black Peter.  Fables and myths from paganism and the observance of the winter solstice have all been incorporated into the "celebration" of Christmas, and the birth of Christ institutionalised in the churches in December (and in January by the Orthodox churches) - even though Jesus was born in the summer of the northern summer. 

            So, instead of promoting the message of Jesus, December (from early November) has become a time of endless jingles on radio stations and in shopping malls, and endless programmes on tv about father "Christmas" dressed in a red outfit popularized by coca cola - of sleighs and reindeers and elfs and gifts, which has everything to do with promoting capitalism and commercialism, and nothing to do with the Christian religion or its spiritual philosophy.  And these images have become so pervasive, they are now completely internationalised. 

            Even greetings have been now been imposed by the supposedly politically correct liberals: insisting that people not say "Merry Christmas," but use the generic "Happy Holidays;" to the point that even many Christians have stopped wishing and praying for a "Blessed Christmas". 

            So sadly, there is simply no mention of Jesus, the Messiah, as a historical figure, and even less mention of his teachings.
