Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: This work addresses the questions concerning the crucifixion/resurrection story, the legends of Jesus in India, Tibet and China, and the unique style and content of the Fourth Gospel. The "street theatre" style of the Hebrew prophets grounds the belief that Jesus also employed drama to proclaim his visions. To encourage his people who were suffering under cruel Roman oppression, he dramatized Isaiah's "Suffering Servant" poem that climaxes with his rescue/resurrection-a promise that God will rescue Israel. Isaiah's "Missionary Servant" poem inspired him to carry his Gospel into new lands. The Syrian Acts of Thomas and more recently discovered material detail his secret ministry to India, Tibet, and China. There, his spirited exchanges with Hindus, Buddhists, and Taoists have enriched the Gospels and may have affected the evolution of eastern religious and philosophical thought, particularly that of Mahayana Buddhism. The book's discussion provides evidence that Jesus was a pioneer of interfaith dialogue and a prophet of world spirituality who inspires us to build a world community of justice, peace and love for people of all faiths. It is appropriate for college and university classes in Bible and Qur'an studies, contemporary theology, and current religious issues. Codice inventario libreria ABE_book_new_0761838333
