    Well, check out this passage from Luke 4.

    The passage was understood to refer to the Messiah. In context, Jesus was standing up and saying "This book of Isaiah that you've worked so hard to memorize? It's about me."

    Dude, the most significant part is SOOOO when he says "Bust down this temple and I'll rebuild that shit in 3 days, chyeah!". Also the part where he trashes the market.

    Basically everything in Jerusalem was pretty bad ass.

    If Disney had written The Bible then Jesus wouldn't have died.
    A criticism that can be brought against everything ought not to be brought against anything.

    In the book of Isaiah it says that the Messiah will die for the sins of the world and allow us into heaven where we only have to say we're sorry?

    In light of the mystery involved here, there is an interesting idea put forward by the Apostle Paul...actually scholars speculate that this was part of an ancient christian hymn or credo that Paul was quoting from....the idea is that Christ was exalted not because he died a horrible, bloody death (lots of people were scourged/crucified back then), but because he "did not count equality with God something to be grasped at, but emptied himself, took the form of a servant, becoming obedient even to death, death on a cross." So here the idea of becoming a servant....or even God becoming a servant...comes into play. This, some theologians say, is why Christ was exalted and "given a name above every other name"....not the blood-letting, but the "not grasping" (as in letting go)....the becoming a servant.

    Really, religious jargon may be betraying us big time here.....we say "Jesus suffered and died on a cross." Fine.....yet it is more accurate to the real meaning of things to say "Jesus became a servant".....or "Jesus was obedient in mediating a new covenant out of love." This puts the whole thing in a different light. There are many aspects of the story that we have become far to comfortable with....they have become hopelessly trite. A reinvestigation is in order.

    The crucifixion, in the end, may have been less about God's justice and malice being righted and more about repairing something so cosmically broken that extreme measures of love were required. Where evil was born out of extremes of pride, evil is vanquished by extremes of service and humility. In many ways what Jesus did in his life and death was to pull back a veil on reality.....on the way things are....not christian reality, or Catholic reality, or Jewish reality, or Buddist reality.....but cosmic reality. In this world view...love and concern is at the epicenter.

    Whatever happened....both in Jesus' birth, miracles, and death, some seriously unexplained stuff was going on, and the eyewitnesses cannot credibly be discounted in many cases...enough to make one wonder. Even as concerns Jesus' death...we also have every reason to seriously look at the fact that this man could have (as reported) risen from the dead. That, then, would be the other half of the mystery....in giving, we receive....and that plays out in massively cosmic ways too!!

    But that may be for another thread.

    Don't know about the "only have to say we're sorry" thing, but the book of Isaiah definitely says that the Messiah will die for the sins of the world.

    Here's one of many passages, this one from Isaiah 53.

    Ever read John 3:16? Actually read John 3:14 to the end of the chapter and it tells what you are asking for.

    This all makes a lot of sense and it depends on the supernatural.

    And the supernatural made sense when we knew so little about the natural.

    We now know our place in the Cosmos. We know what the Cosmos is made of. We know where the Cosmos came from. And most importantly, we know where we came from.

    And all of it is in the natural world. The supernatural is no longer needed to explain our world.

    But the supernatural is still used to explain our world, for instance, there are over one billion muslims and just under one billion catholics.

    And universal literacy and prosperity has only been recently achieved in the West. The rest remain illiterate and poor.

    This means there are profound differences in child rearing practices.

    This has profound effect on the formation of personality.

    And this produces whole bands of psycho-classes across the world.

    And it is plain that the supernatural meets the needs of some psycho-classes. While the supernatural is much less necessary to the new psycho-class in the literate, prosperous West.
