Disturbing TV program
« on: January 04, 2010, 05:26:48 PM »
I watched part of a show on the History Channel (I'm pretty sure) which was called something like Banned From the Bible lll.  It was mildly entertaining until they got to a portion  (The Lost book of Mark, or something) which none-to subtly insinuated that Jesus was "involved" with a young man whom he raised from the dead.  I found this unbelieveably disturbing and it ticked me off mightily.

Anyone else see this crap or hear this rumour before?

I have.  Jesus was said by some imo 'sickies' as having homosexual love for one of the 12 deciples.

Hearing that horrible accusation against Jesus (and the disciple) sent a heat of shock and disgust through me.

Indeed.  I have to admit I have never heard anything like it, and it was one of those open-mouthed reactions.  I couldn't think of a more sacrilegious thing to say.

I never heard that before but I wouldn't be surprised.  I like the History Channel but they push an agenda.  I try not to take their "facts" as truth.
We could never learn to be brave and patient, if there were only joy in the world.

Oh yes...as I have mentioned before, there are literally dozens, if not hundreds of these so-called "Lost Books".  The one you refer to is but one of many.  And there even more stranger stories in them.

As far as the History Channel is concerned, the books are indeed "history"; as such I have no problem with shows about them.  The problem starts when Christians take these books as "lost books of the Bible" and try to use them in conjunction with the Bible itself.

If anyone tries this, they will run into a host of problems and contradictions.  But there are posters on this very site try to meld the so-called "lost books" with the Bible.  The most popular one I have seen is the Book of Enoch...but there are many, many others.

And by the way. there are no "lost books of the Bible".  I have never understood how someone could think that God could "lose" a part of His Word.

In the Gospel of Mark there is mention of the boy (teen age) that Jesus brought back to life I believe the only son of his mother. (Much wailing...terrible grieving...)

That night the boy came to Jesus' tent in clean linens - All were sent away and Jesus and the boy stayed alone. The Gospel was not accepted into the Bible with the others for fear it could be misunderstood.

Here was a boy that was dead for quite some time. My goodness, what could he have experienced! He needed counsel badly.  He and Jesus had MUCH to discuss.
I wish I had been a fly on the wall. What Jesus must have taught that young man about life and time, God and the afterlife, the Laws of the Universe and that He was able to bring him back into his body!! And who did that boy grow up to be after the insights the Master must have helped him understand!!
What a blessed boy.

But, the nature of man's mind "is what it is" and exactly what they were afraid of happened on A&E centuries later. Amazing isn't it? The men of the world don't understand - just as it is written.

It isn't a rumor. It is actual tects.
No, nothing in those texts directly says that Jesus had sex with the young man. It is just that it SOUNDS like it from the text.
It says that the young man came to Jesus with "only loin covering his naked body"(something like that)
Now that isn't so bad, however, then the text says(note that I am not copy-pasting) "That night, Jesus taught him about all the wonders of heaven". Which could by satirists be used as a phrase saying that they had great sex all through the night.  ::shrug::
But I suppose only modern humor would look at it that way. When the text was written, that sort of humor probably wasn't so much around.

They're early.  Usually the History Channel, Discovery, Time, and Newsweek trot this crap (technical theology term, that) out as a way to get ratings near Easter and Christmas.  They are the Gnostic gospels, and Lee Freeman has a good post about them here: http://www.gracecentered.com/christian_forums/general-discussion/the-gnostic-gospels-fact-or-fiction-13600/msg270846/#msg270846

I don't like any of the history channels Bible shows. They are obviously not done by Christians.
