    Easter Science: 6 Facts About Jesus

    He may be the most famous man who ever lived, but surprisingly little is known about his life.
    This Sunday (March 31), more than 2 billion Christians will celebrate Jesus Christ's resurrection from the dead. While there is no scientific way to know whether that supernatural event at the heart of Christianity actually happened, historians have established some facts about his life.
    From his birth to his execution by the Romans, here are six facts about the historical Jesus.

    1. His birth … in a manger?
    2. A mystical baptism
    3. Reformer
    4. A wise teacher
    5. Timing of Jesus' crucifixion
    6. Historical relics

    Luke 2:

    [41] Now his parents went to Jerusalem every year at the feast of the passover.
    [42] And when he was twelve years old, they went up to Jerusalem after the custom of the feast.
    [43] And when they had fulfilled the days, as they returned, the child Jesus tarried behind in Jerusalem; and Joseph and his mother knew not of it.
    [44] But they, supposing him to have been in the company, went a day's journey; and they sought him among their kinsfolk and acquaintance.
    [45] And when they found him not, they turned back again to Jerusalem, seeking him.
    [46] And it came to pass, that after three days they found him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the doctors, both hearing them, and asking them questions.
    [47] And all that heard him were astonished at his understanding and answers.
    [48] And when they saw him, they were amazed: and his mother said unto him, Son, why hast thou thus dealt with us? behold, thy father and I have sought thee sorrowing.
    [49] And he said unto them, How is it that ye sought me? wist ye not that I must be about my Father's business?

    Coger one things seems to be so contrary is the tradition with. Easter HAS NEVER BEEN A CHRISTIAN CUSTOM.
    What do rabbits and eggs have to do with Easter.
    Can one count three days and three nights between Friday and Sunday....just curious.The birth, death and resurrection of Jesus is vitally important, without those three, there would be no hope.

    dunwiddat, the link you provided couldn't be found by Google, but I found this:


    While highly influential in its day, The Golden Bough has come under harsh critical scrutiny in subsequent decades, with many of its descriptions of regional folklore and legends deemed less than reliable. Furthermore, much of its tone is rooted in a philosophy of social Darwinism--sheer cultural imperialism, really--that finds its most explicit form in Frazer's rhetorical question: "If in the most backward state of human society now known to us we find magic thus conspicuously present and religion conspicuously absent, may we not reasonably conjecture that the civilised races of the world have also at some period of their history passed through a similar intellectual phase?" (The truly civilized races, he goes on to say later, though not particularly loudly, are the ones whose minds evolve beyond religious belief to embrace the rational structures of scientific thought.)


    You may want to produce a better support source. Also, don't forget to include his burial ...

    Peace In,
