Re: Born of a woman, under the law... Joshua...

If I were forced to come up with a theory along these lines I guess it would be something like this: The "Jesus Christ" Paul was preaching was a figure like Enoch, derived from Jewish scriptures about Joshua son of Nun -- Joshua the Messiah. The Joshua of Paul was created through the process of pesh...

Re: Born of a woman, under the law... Joshua...

We'll here's a stumbling block to the idea that Jesus Christ / Joshua son of Nun that comes from Romans itself: Romans 10: 14 But how are they to call on one in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in one of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone to ...

Re: Born of a woman, under the law... Joshua...

I'll let you read the thread robert, but yeah, I agree that Jesus is not a descendant of David. What I'm proposing is very simple. Jesus Christ is simply Joshua the Messiah (son of Nun). What's laid out in the thread are reasons to believe that the Joshua Paul was talking about lived and died during...

Re: Born of a woman, under the law... Joshua...

wouldn't the Talmud have something to say on this messiah Joshua idea, especially if they were aware the Christian Jesus's name derived from the biblical Joshua? PS Is it possible to imagine someone named 'Joses' or 'Josis' the short Greek form of Joseph being etymologically connected back to the H...

Re: Born of a woman, under the law... Joshua...

Thanks Ben. Hung on a tree? Joshua 8: 29 And he hanged the king of Ai on a tree until evening; and at sunset Joshua commanded, and they took his body down from the tree, threw it down at the entrance of the gate of the city, and raised over it a great heap of stones, which stands there to this day. ...

Re: Born of a woman, under the law... Joshua...

Working through this s bit more. So if we now read the hymn from Philippians: who, though he was in the form of God, did not regard equality with God as something to be exploited, 7 but emptied himself, taking the form of a slave, being born in human likeness. And being found in human form, 8 he hum...

Re: Born of a woman, under the law... Isaac...

It may be that Paul is talking about the historical Joshua son of Nun, a Messiah for the Jewish people, a title he could rightly be granted. But the "rising" of Joshua was a recent event. Joshua died a long time ago, but he is risen now. Again: Romans 5: 6 For while we were still weak, at the right ...

Re: Born of a woman, under the law... Isaac...

What I'm proposing is that everywhere Paul was always talking about Joshua son of Nun. Any time Paul says Jesus Christ he's really saying the Messiah Joshua son of Nun. Paul never talks about a Jesus blood brother of James.

Re: Born of a woman, under the law... Isaac...

To test this a little further, are there any stories about Joshua son of Nun going from rich to poor?
2 Cor 8:9 For you know the generous act of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, so that by his poverty you might become rich.

Re: Born of a woman, under the law... Isaac...

But wait, maybe this is spelled out. Romans 5: 12 Therefore, just as sin came into the world through one man, and death came through sin, and so death spread to all because all have sinned— 13 sin was indeed in the world before the law, but sin is not reckoned when there is no law. 14 Yet death exer...
