What is the content of the new Christianity?
The new Christianity is simply expressed as “the way of self-salvation is to walk with the risen Jesus Christ.”
Jesus Christ was born into the world as a being who did not and could not sin. However, He was judged to have sinned in that time period about 2,000 years ago. It was also considered a sin worthy of death. When you compare Jesus Christ’s actions and words to their “old view of God” at the time, they had no choice but to do so. Jesus Christ is the Savior. It is safe to say that He was born into the real world to save His people. The “purpose” and “reason” for which “God Almighty” sent Jesus Christ to the earthly world must be fulfilled. The presence and actions of Jesus Christ must ultimately resolve this contradiction through Jesus Christ Himself. I believe that it is because of this resolution that he has been adored as the Christian Messiah to this day. The contradiction here is that Jesus Christ, who never sinned, was killed because of sin. I will try to show that Jesus Christ was not killed because of his own sins, but on the contrary, because of the sins of the people of that time. Because of its brutality, the crucifixion was the heaviest penalty in the Roman Empire, which only rebels were subjected to and Roman citizens were exempted from.
Why were the words, deeds, and actions of Jesus Christ perceived as alien to real-world human beings? I am sure that the chief priests, scribes and leaders of the people understood the main point that Jesus Christ was advocating, but they were tasked with maintaining and stabilizing the country in its traditional way. I think it was difficult for them to argue with Jesus Christ and bring about change in the real world in a short period of time. In other words, for them, they were in a position where they could not be officially recognized without establishing the relationship between the gospel of Jesus Christ and the real world and confirming its demonstrability, etc.
It could be said that the chief priests, the teachers of the law, and the leaders of the people could not see or visualize what the real world should look like in the future. They could only understand and act in a direction that affirmed the maintenance of the real world system. The words, deeds, and actions of Jesus Christ could be said to have been too hasty in the usual sense, but they should have been handled with Jesus Christ as the central figure. They could not be carried out while taking time to check each one. He did not necessarily follow the flow of time in the real world, but he went on to preach the good news that he had to preach, albeit for a short time. People at that time could not respond adequately. Even after 2,000 years, people are still studying Jesus Christ.
Sin is a great gap between us and God. Two thousand years ago, even the Jewish people, one of the most superior peoples in the world, could not adequately respond to the “living Messiah/God in the real world.
But the very fact that Almighty God sent Jesus Christ into the world was to build a bridge, and He has closed the gap with “Almighty God. So now we are closer to “God Almighty. Through the “resurrected Jesus Christ,” we have received the “holy portion.
Almighty God did not want Jesus Christ to spend His life as a good citizen. It was not enough for him to live a life without being backslidden. It was not about living a great life, making great inventions, making great discoveries, etc. The life of Jesus Christ was to demonstrate universal teachings.
Jesus Christ brought the good news entrusted to Him by “Almighty God,” but at the end the masses asked Him “how to save Himself.” The masses said, “Save yourself and come down from the cross.” Answering this question was the last good news that Jesus Christ revealed before His death. He showed us “how to save ourselves” for the last time on the cross. He was caught, tried, sentenced to death, and crucified and killed, even though he had committed no crime. Jesus Christ was not assassinated, but was killed through a formal process.
This method may have been a compromise between the humans of the time and the Messiah. God sent the Messiah to the real world with all kinds of preparations in place, but he left the world, perhaps half-heartedly. However, He foretold Himself that He would go to the cross. The only way to know that this is the teaching of truth is for Jesus Christ Himself to demonstrate it in His own body. The masses think that words alone are not enough to believe. He really was killed that way. But when He was resurrected after His death, it can be understood that Almighty God showed that His actions were in accordance with His will.
After all, what did the people of that time want? I believe it was not to follow God’s revealed plan, but to act as masters of the real world themselves. God sent the invisible God back into the real world as the “resurrected Jesus Christ,” not God as the visible Substantial Person. I have read the New Testament and found this to be true.
I believe that Jesus Christ’s death on the cross and His resurrection were for us to remember that our sins are forgiven and to reflect on our new way of life. For the Church, the death of Jesus Christ is not vain. The cross is no longer an abomination, a sign of failure or defeat. We believe this because we believe that God’s love for humanity is shown in the cross. This may be difficult to understand with reason. But I believe this is the reason why Christianity holds up the cross so high.
What kind of person is the resurrected Jesus Christ? And how is he different from Jesus Christ who came as the Messiah in the flesh? This is what I think. Jesus Christ, who came as the physical Messiah, was able to perform miracles. Numerous examples are found in the New Testament. There are various interpretations of the examples of miracles in the New Testament, but I have interpreted them to mean that He was indeed able to perform miraculous feats.
This is the first miracle of Jesus Christ from the New Testament, The Good News According to John, chapter 2, verses 1~11. Let us analyze this miracle.
Quoted from the Diglot New Testament, The Good News According to John 2:1~11
The Wedding at Cana
On the third day there was a wedding at Cana of Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there. Jesus also was invited to the wedding with his disciples. When the wine ran out, the mother of Jesus said to him, “They have no wine.” And Jesus said to her, “Woman, what does this have to do with me? My hour has not yet come.” His mother said to the servants, “Do whatever he tells you.” Now there were six stone water jars there for the Jewish rites of purification, each holding twenty or thirty gallons. Jesus said to the servants, “Fill the jars with water.” And they filled them up to the brim. And he said to them, “Now draw some out and take it to the master of the feast.” So they took it. When the master of the feast tasted the water now become wine, and did not know where it came from (though the servants who had drawn the water knew), the master of the feast called the bridegroom and said to him, “Everyone serves the good wine first, and when the people have drunk freely, then the poor wine. But you have kept the good wine until now!” This, the first of his signs, Jesus did in Cana in Galilee, and manifested his glory. And his disciples believed in him.
The incident described in the New Testament, in which Jesus Christ turned water into wine at his wedding, is the first recorded miracle he performed. Common sense would not easily believe this, as it totally disregards time and structure. This miracle is an act of transcending the structure of time and space with respect to matter. There are many interpretations of this incident. Some interpret it as a mere parable. I interpreted it as if there really was such an incident. It takes about 1~2 months from preparation to make even a new wine such as Beaujolais Nouveau, but Jesus used his ability to transcend aged fine wine and turned it from water into wine in an instant. If this could be done routinely, the normal wine-making techniques that existing people have developed up to now would be meaningless. This must have been both gratifying and terrifying for the ordinary people who had no special skills.
For the people of that time, the element of time was the source of all human capabilities and possibilities in the real world. Even today, time is God’s greatest gift to man in the real world. Time can solve anything. Grief can be healed with time, and biological evolution can be solved with time.
When trying to do creative work, some things need to continue from generation to generation in order to get things done, because life on earth is not eternal for humans. Life is the amount of time we can survive and be active in this world. Love, as preached by Jesus Christ, also involves action, or actual activity. Love is not only a thought.
Miracles are not empty requests, and if you ask God for a miracle, you will realize the horror of the fact that your wish will really come true and, by contrast, the helplessness of human beings. The New Testament is a book for self-knowledge of such things, for a renewed awareness of being human. So if the equivalent of a miracle were to be attempted by ordinary human beings, it would need to never end. It is important that time continue to flow for human existence forever in the earthly world so that human beings can create with human power from generation to generation. For man to become like God, endless time is necessary. If man were able to acquire God-like creative power, then the concept of time would cease to exist.
Jesus Christ was a human being who was truly called the Son of God, who was also able to give life to the dead. After the death of Jesus Christ, the process of ordinary human beings’ steady efforts to walk into the future with the resurrected Jesus Christ, using the conventional “element of time,” came to be called “evolution” or “science.
Messiah in the flesh was able to perform miracles. Miracles can be divided into time transcendence and spatial transcendence. The instantaneous creation of wine is time transcendence, and the transformation of water into grape juice is spatial transcendence. You could call it structural transcendence. With those two abilities, I made wine from water instantaneously.
Jesus Christ had the authority to manipulate time like a network. To be precise, what Jesus Christ brought with Him is what is called “time transcendence.” Although this is understood as a metaphorical expression, the ability to manipulate time can be thought of as an ability that accompanied the physical body of Jesus Christ. What is called time existed before Jesus Christ was born into the world. Expressed in physical form as the Messiah, Jesus Christ is “time transcendence,” meaning the ability to manipulate time as a network against matter. Of all the feats performed by God described in the Old Testament, the foremost was the giving birth to Jesus Christ. It is described and expressed in the “Nicene Constantinople Creed” as follows.
We believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty,
maker of heaven and earth, of all that is seen and unseen.
We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only Son of God,
eternally begotten of the Father,
God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God,
begotten, not made, one in being with the Father.
Through Him all things were made.
For us men and our salvation He came down from heaven:
by the power of the Holy Spirit,
He was born of the Virgin Mary, and became man.
By this description, I have determined that time is the body of Jesus Christ. According to the New Testament account, Jesus Christ could also give life to the dead. He was truly a human being called the Son of God. He resurrected the dead back to relevance to time. In other words, he gave life.
In spite of the wonderful proposals from God, the people of that time chose to use the “conventional time” factor. Jesus Christ tried to pass on his miraculous skills to the world, but ultimately, by popular consent, he was crucified and killed.
However, God resurrected Jesus Christ as a testimony of His absolute love for mankind. As a result, after the death of Jesus Christ, human beings in the real world will walk slowly toward the future with the resurrected Jesus Christ. The resurrected Jesus Christ cannot be seen with the eyes. We may have to use our sixth sense to know. As a result, man has chosen the destiny to flourish by walking with the Risen Jesus Christ. The “time transcendence,” or “time administrator,” has been sealed.
The other “spatial transcendence” or “spatial administrator” has become the good news of man, obtained by walking with the risen Jesus Christ. The risen Jesus Christ has jurisdiction over spatial transcendence and is its administrator.
Born in the real world, Jesus Christ possessed the authority of time and spatial transcendence. That is why he was able to perform miracles as described in the Bible. However, according to the information available in the New Testament, the body of Jesus Christ was lost without descendants, so the time transcendence was sealed off, making it inaccessible to man from the real world. By the grace of God’s absolute love for man, Jesus Christ was resurrected, and spatial transcendence was disclosed to man through the resurrected Jesus Christ as spatial or structural principality.
Through this process, man has been able to benefit from spatial administrator by using the conventional “item of time” and by walking with the resurrected Jesus Christ. We can use two elements: normal time and the right to control space. And we have obtained methods called evolution, science, etc., which we use to this day.
By the way, what is the Nicene Creed? From the beginning of its history, the Church faced many problems. The main one was concerning Jesus Christ. For this reason, the Church has held councils to more precisely articulate its beliefs. Thus, the creeds decided by the First Council of Nicaea in 325 and the Council of Constantinople in 381 were combined into one creed, also called the “profession of faith”. This creed has long been recited as the profession of faith at Mass.
Jesus Christ was the embodiment of time and spatial transcendence. Since Jesus Christ died on the cross, temporal and spatial transcendence were lost. But since Jesus Christ was resurrected, only spatial transcendence became the good news of man and was inscribed in human history. In the death on the cross scene described in the New Testament, we read that “the tent was rent.” I believe this is an expression that implies that spatial administrator have been opened for human beings. We can benefit from spatial administrator by walking with the risen Jesus Christ.
The spatial and structural administrator, the blessing of the resurrected Jesus Christ, has been given to human beings, and so scientific and technological developments have been given to human beings in a wide range of fields, including the field of gene structure and brain science.
Furthermore, the development of science and technology across such diverse fields as the structure of genes and the field of brain science was given to human beings because of the blessings of the resurrected Jesus Christ, in other words, the spatial and structural administrator given to human beings. However, these are not blessings that are given unilaterally, since they are rewarded if we work hard. This is described in the New Testament in Matthew 7:7~14.
Diglot Bible Matthew 7:7~14
Ask, and It Will Be Given
“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened. Or Which one of you, if his son asks him for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a serpent? If you, then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask him!
“So whatever you wish that others would do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.
“Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few.
