Comments on: Did Jesus headline Glastonbury before Springsteen? http://blogs.reuters.com/faithworld/2009/11/27/did-jesus-headline-glastonbury-before-springsteen/ Religion, faith and ethics Sat, 23 Apr 2016 23:25:07 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Noah Idea http://blogs.reuters.com/faithworld/2009/11/27/did-jesus-headline-glastonbury-before-springsteen/comment-page-1/#comment-22678 Wed, 02 Dec 2009 02:01:49 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/faithworld/?p=9954#comment-22678 There is little evidence Jesus even existed. Let alone visited Glastonbury.Which means that as far as baseless claims go, both are equally possible.

There is no letter of St Augustine of Canterbury to Pope Gregory describing a Glastonbury church built by Jesus––the main item of evidence cited by Rev Strachan. There is a 13th century manuscript of the very scrupulous historian William of Malmesbury which contains the reference, but it is clearly a forgery. We know this because we also have William’s original text before it was doctored. Moreover, the translation offered by Rev Strachan is incorrect. The Latin refers to a Church built by Jesus’ disciples, not his hands.In short, there is no historical evidence whatsoever that Jesus came to Britain and it is immensely improbable that Jesus ever left Palestine.

If Jesus is God, then what “ancient wisdom” could have possibly been of any value to him? Does it stand to reason that the supreme creator of all things arrived here on Earth and sought out spiritual guidance from people who didn’t even believe in him?

Because Moderators would moderate the modules. Overseers would oversee the vision. Collators would collate the collations, Samplers would sample the samples. Forket toungues would derive the derivitives of derivation language. But simplistic and fatuous accusations and then judgements will always be made avaliable by the third estate who exist at the same level of feathered friends flocking while foxingly winking at the Sheep

If there was a ‘real god’ then we would not be subjected to the sort of scams (esp the ones in god’s name) that we see.

Firstly, there is no evidence or proof the character Jesus was even a real figure in history. ” is completely bogus.Historians all agree Jesus lived, and taught, and did the things the Bible tells about. What they (the historians) differ on was whether he was Diety.Your statement reflects a complete ignorance of history. It’s like saying there was no “George Washington” – it makes no sense in light of the facts. We can debate whether George really chopped down a cherry tree, but there is no debate about whether he lived.Likewise Jesus lived among the 1st century people in what is now Israel. There is no debate about that. Whether He was Diety is the only issue up for discussion.

Some folks are just so arrogant.

Firstly, there is no evidence or proof the character Jesus was even a real figure in history. No artifacts, no conclusive writings, only second and third hand opinions rife with ‘plot flaws’ made decades and centuries after his supposed time. To ‘guess’ or speculate, without a single bit of supporting evidence, he visited an area for education which was far behind the East in technology and language is as absurd as it is pointless. Mixing religious speculation with a rock-n-roll venue is just sophomoric on many levels.
