Getting Rid of Jesus

Oh boy, I'll be blogging on this some more, but the quick "heads up" if you haven't already heard... The producer of the epic blockbuster Titanic, James Cameron and his director, Simcha Jacobovici, are making a movie that claims Jesus didn't rise from the dead. Yup. The film proposes that his burial cave was discovered just outside of Jerusalem. Here's my favorite part; Jesus had a son with Mary Magdelene. No way!

World, please hearken to this bit of a blog.

It's all been tried before. In Matthew's gospel, immediately following the most incredible event in human history, greedy, arrogant people who'd rather be gods than have a God to obey, tried to get rid of Jesus:

"And behold, Jesus met them on their way and greeted them. They approached, embraced his feet, and did him homage. Then Jesus said to them, "Do not be afraid. Go tell my brothers to go to Galilee, and there they will see me." While they were going, some of the guard went into the city and told the chief priests all that had happened. They assembled with the elders and took counsel; then they gave a large sum of money to the soldiers, telling them, "You are to say, 'His disciples came by night and stole him while we were asleep.' And if this gets to the ears of the governor, we will satisfy (him) and keep you out of trouble." The soldiers took the money and did as they were instructed. And this story has circulated among the Jews to the present (day)."
- Matthew 28:4-16

Why? Why didn't they embrace the possibility that all of our dreams, hopes, and desires that death be conquered and suffering triumphed over could be true? Why the cover-up, the fear, the conspiracy theories?! Why press on in the vain attempt to save ourselves? Stay tuned, there's alot more to unpack in this one!
