    Wow! is this raiders of the lost ark stuff.
    It would be interesting if the M$M covers it
    over here.

    I have been to Israel, last time in 1991 and
    a lady I went with was close to this guy and
    always updating us...I thought she was kinda
    on the edge with bible numerology but I did not
    condemn her.

    We shall see how this goes

    keep us updated.

    I have a question that has haunted me for years. 65 years to be exact. Most historians agree that the events of the bible took place on what was once known as the African continent and in the last hundred years an area calle the "Middle East". We also know that caucasions first appeared on that continent in the very early 1200's Keeping that in mind, ehy do Christians continue to depict Chrost and all of the other biblical men and women as white and not black? There are so many people in the world who stay away from Christianty because of what they say is hypocrisy. Portraying Christ as a white man and not dealing with the truth of his ethnicity seems to lend credence to this argument. U have even heard that if churches admit that Christ had to be a man of color, it would result in the bankruptcy of the church..Meaning that most who call themselves loving Christians could not and would not accept Christ as a black man.

    Jesus of Nazareth was swarthy and very well tanned
    perhaps darkly tanned...he was a journeyman fix it
    up handy man and when his ministry started he did
    a lot of sojourning.

    imho

    I think the scriptures wouild have used the word
    nubian or ethopian desent if he had been purely
    black.

    but who knows from Marys side there could have
    been a percentage ... from the Holy Spirit side
    we know it to be "In Gods Image" or representing
    every man.

    we know Jesus was for all and represented all...we definitely need to push back and not
    paint him so white...he was rugged and common...
    but ultimaley special.

    but its hard to support him as totally pure black
    I just don't see it..perhaps somebody else does.

    First of all, Welcome to the BB [​IMG] . Secondly, Jesus is the Son of God and he is perfect in every way. It doesn't matter what color he is depicted as. I consider myself one of the "most" and it not an issue with me.

    Exellent !!!! I like to think, as a carpenter from his era, he was probably pretty stout. We know he had some pretty strong legs, and HAD to be athletic to walk the 45 miles from Beth-a-bara to Nazareth. I'm not sure who the preacher was who said it, but to paraphrase...

    "if Christ was a linebacker, you'd have a pretty hard time getting up after one of his tackles...."

    From the article:

    "Armed with this and other blessings, Jones is now excited to uncover his life's pursuit. He believes the ark will be discovered by Tisha B'Av (Aug. 14), a day of repeated tragedy in Jewish history. Most notably, it is the anniversary of the destruction of both the First and Second Holy Temples."

    If it doesn't happen by August 14, should this guy be written off as a false teacher or maybe just a crackpot?

    I am saving this thread in my favorites so I can check back on it on August 14th.

    It is intriguing isn't it, Ken??? Like you many are waiting (I am sure) for this man to fail. Every time there is an adventure raised in Biblical Archeology, I remain hopeful. I don't want this man to fail. I want the Ark of the Covenent to be found and then to watch what unfolds thereafter. We do live in extraordinary times.

    I am concerned that if something like the Ark of the Covenant or Noah's Ark was actually found that it would become an idol, even, I am afraid, to some Christians.

    That is certainly a great possibility.

    Try this site:

    Discovered Biblical Artifacts

    This man, who is now dead, claims to have located Noah's Ark, the Ark of the Covenant, the tomb of Christ, the real Mt. Sinai, and the Red Sea crossing used by the Israelis.

    He's even got pictures, and I must say that I am a little shocked by them.

    It makes me want to go site seeing in the Holy Land.

    Even if none of it is true, it is still neat to see all of this stuff.

    Well, August 14th, came and went. I guess the dispensationalists are crying today that they have been disappointed once again.

    Why would the dispensationalists be crying?? :confused:

    Kabbalists and the cult of Noahides that this guy belongs to have nothing to do with dispensationalism.

    Please explain.

    Because when some article like that one is published there are dispensationalists who get all giddy about it. Otherwise, dispensationalists wouldn't be posting such articles on boards like this one. And then reality hits and what was said was going to happen ends up not happening.

    I've never been called a "giddy" dispensationalist before. But then again, the Rapture is something to be giddy about, LOL. Hallelujah! [​IMG]
