Opinion A variety of nonChristian historical sources support the idea that Jesus

first_imgOpinion: A variety of non-Christian historical sources support the idea that Jesus rose from the dead The eyewitnesses to the resurrection were willing to die for their faith – but who would die for a lie, writes Thomas Finegan. These diverse witnesses were either telling the truth or lying. But why would they lie?They would have known that claiming Jesus was risen would put them in danger of torture and death. EASTER IS THE Christian celebration of the resurrection of Jesus Christ.The key written source for the resurrection claim is the New Testament, in particular the four Gospels and the letters of Paul.Sceptics tend to deride these writings as fiction – but how credible are they in light of other historical sources?While the New Testament makes use of figurative and symbolic language, it is also based on testimony of what historically occurred.Many of the most important historical claims made in the New Testament are corroborated by non-Christian historical sources.For example, Josephus, a Roman-Jewish historian, writing in around 93 AD, affirmed not only the existence of Jesus but the fact that he was a “wise man”, a “teacher” and a “doer of wonderful works”.Josephus also makes mention of Jesus’ crucifixion and of the imprisonment and death of Jesus’ cousin, John the Baptist.The Roman magistrate Pliny the Younger wrote in around 112 AD that Christians “meet on a fixed day before dawn and sing responsively a hymn to Christ as to a god, and to bind themselves by oath … not to commit fraud, theft, or adultery, not falsify their trust, nor to refuse to return a trust when called upon to do so.” In around 116 AD, Tacitus, a Roman senator and historian, wrote about how Nero tortured Christians.He further explained that “Christus” had “suffered the extreme penalty during the reign of Tiberius at the hands of one of our procurators, Pontius Pilatus”.Written sourcesOther interesting sources that mention Jesus include the Greek Lucian of Samosata (around 170 AD) and the Jewish Talmud (200 AD to 500 AD).The New Testament contains the earliest written sources about Jesus.Scholars disagree over precise timelines but it is likely that Paul’s authentic letters were written 20 to 25 years after Jesus’ death. The first Gospel appeared 35 years after Jesus’ death if not before. This written tradition about Jesus was rooted in an earlier oral tradition. That oral testimony began during Jesus’ lifetime and was substantial – memory skill was highly prized among Jews of that era.There is a consensus among historians that these documents provide us with knowledge of Jesus. One of the reasons for this is that the documents can be traced back to eyewitness reports of Jesus’ teachings and actions.Another is that these writings would have circulated among communities where Jesus ministered.Many eyewitnesses and relatives of eyewitnesses would still have been alive and would likely have heard of the documents so it would have been difficult for the writers to fabricate events, as any fabrications could easily have been exposed by contemporaries.The most profound claim made by Paul in the Gospels is that after being crucified Jesus rose from the dead.  This proclamation originated in the immediate aftermath of Jesus’ death.There are two interrelated components to the resurrection claim. First, the tomb where Jesus was buried lay empty, and this is almost certainly true. (a) Contemporary Jews accepted that the tomb was empty (according to Justin Martyr’s ‘Dialogue with Trypho’ and the Jewish ‘Toledot Yeshu’).(b) The Gospels state that women discovered the empty tomb.Since women’s testimony was viewed as suspect according to Jewish custom – if the story was fabricated, why would the fabricators attribute the discovery to women? (c) If the tomb wasn’t empty then no one would have believed reports that Jesus had risen: the existence of the rotting body, which was easily verifiable, would disprove such reports.It is also very unlikely that the body was stolen.Rational motiveIf enemies of the early Christians had stolen Jesus’ body they surely would have returned it once the Christians began claiming that Jesus had risen.There is no rational motive for why Jesus’ followers would have risked their lives to steal his body. To their minds, Jesus had just been humiliated and killed for claiming to be the Son of God.He was dead and gone, and his followers were in hiding and many were even denying they knew him. Why would they risk the same fate on behalf of a failed, humiliated prophet? The second component is the resurrection appearances.Various people, including women followers, the apostles, other named individuals and even crowds of people are reported to have witnessed the resurrected Jesus a short while after his death and on different occasions and in different circumstances after that.  The resurrection explains all of these events in a consistent way, and it explains why Jesus’ earliest followers were willing to die for their faith: they knew it to be true because they themselves encountered the risen Christ.That experience changed their lives and continues to change the lives of many to this day.Dr Thomas Finegan is a lecturer in Theology at Mary Immaculate College. 198 Comments 40,647 Views Short URL Dr Thomas Finegan center_img Apr 21st 2019, 1:01 PM Sunday 21 Apr 2019, 1:00 PM Indeed, there is evidence that Stephen, James, Peter and Paul were each martyred.Very few people are willing to sacrifice their life for something they believe to be true. It is highly unlikely that a significant number of people, from a variety of backgrounds, would be willing to die for something they knew to be false.Early Christians were widely known for their commitment to truth, and it seems that at the very least a significant number of people at the time believed that they had witnessed the resurrection. Paul is an important source – before witnessing the risen Christ he actively persecuted Christians as a committed Jew.But after experiencing the resurrection, he became the most convinced Christian of all.Something happened that radically changed the lives of Jesus’ earliest followers and their persecutor, Paul. Something happened to make the tomb empty. Lecturer in Theology By Dr Thomas Finegan Share Tweet Email6 Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this articlelast_img read more

Casino floor space minimum hotel size among IR regulations approved by Japanese

first_img Huawei Japan joins Kansai Economic Federation with eye on World Expo 2025 and Osaka IR The Japanese government has given cabinet approval to the Development and Promotion Ordinance for Integrated Resorts, locking in place a range of key regulations governing the size and scope of the nation’s first integrated resorts.The contents of the cabinet order are the same as those within the previously announced ordinance draft, including limiting the floor space of the casino to no more than 3% of the entire IR facility and restricting advertisements for casinos to the border check areas of ports and airports for arriving international visitors. Genting’s Resorts World Las Vegas names five key additions to executive team An IR’s hotel must have a total guest room area of at least 100,000 square meters, while the size of the international conference and exhibition halls will be calculated together but also expected to be on a scale much greater than anything previously seen in Japan.Further, operators will be required to report information on guests who exchange over JPY1 million (US$9,050) in cash or chips in order to combat money laundering.Local governments hoping to make an IR bid will apply to the national government with an area development plan, along with their operator partner, based on this order.The newly approved ordinance is based on the Act on Promotion of Development of Specified Complex Tourist Facilities Areas announced on 27 July 2018 and lays the foundations for IR facilities. The enforcement ordinance draft, first announced in February, has now implemented the public feedback phase and was put together by the IR Promotion Headquarters. The implementation process will start in phases from 1 April 2019.Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, who was at the IR Promotion Headquarters assembly held in the Prime Minister’s office prior to the cabinet meeting, commented on Tuesday, “We are hoping for a scale and quality not achieved before in long-stay tourism to attract tourists from all over the world.“We are working hard to establish a Casino Administration Committee and establish basic policies in the future as we move toward realizing our dream of being a key tourist destination.” RelatedPosts Load More Lack of premium mass strategy begs questions of SJM’s Grand Lisboa Palace launch: analystslast_img read more

Dubai hits rough patch as markets slump economic slowdown on the cards

first_imgDubaiReutersIn Dubai’s posh Jumeirah Beach Residence district, luxury apartment rents are down about 15 percent from a year ago – a sign, some fear, that the wealthy emirate’s recipe for economic success is getting stale.For over two decades, Dubai prospered as one of the world’s most international cities, attracting people and capital from across the globe.Nine years ago, it needed a $20 billion bailout from oil-rich Abu Dhabi to escape a debt crisis caused by collapsing property prices. Dubai’s economy roared back and has grown by a third since then, buoyed by foreign trade, tourism and its status as the main regional hub for business services.Now, however, Dubai issued 4,722 new business licenses in the second quarter of 2018, down 26 percent from the same period in 2016, the year when new licenses peaked.The falls may be temporary, the result of an economic slowdown in the Gulf caused by low oil prices. But other figures suggest some of Dubai’s traditional growth engines are losing steam, which could mean a long-term slump.Growth in passenger traffic through the city’s international airport has fallen to near zero this year, after 15 years of strong growth. Increasingly long-range aircraft may loosen Dubai’s dominance as a travel hub connecting Asia and Europe.Official data shows Dubai’s population continues to expand, by 3.5 percent to 3.08 million in the first half of 2018. But most growth in recent years has been in lower-paid construction and services jobs, not in higher-paid white-collar posts.”Perhaps the era when one could move to Dubai to make one’s wealth is passing,” said Hasnain Malik, Dubai-based global head of equity research and strategy at Exotix Capital.He said the city was increasingly attractive as a base for rich people from around the world who wished to enjoy their wealth.But it is not clear that Dubai’s transport industries and business zones can continue growing fast enough to attract, and retain, the number of foreign white-collar workers needed to support demand in its real estate market, Malik said. Dubai Burj KhalifaSTRUCTURAL CHALLENGESEconomists see little risk of another financial crisis; after restructuring billions of dollars of debt, Dubai’s state-linked companies are less leveraged than they were a decade ago.Nor has headline economic growth slowed greatly. International Monetary Fund officials have estimated gross domestic product will expand over 3 percent this year.”The emirate continues to attract businesses and investors as a competitive hub for sustainable business development,” Dubai’s Department of Economic Development said in a statement this week, adding that licensing figures showed “continued investment in all vital economic sectors in Dubai”.But much of this year’s growth is due to a big rise in state spending as Dubai builds infrastructure to host the Expo 2020 world’s fair; its 2018 budget soared 19.5 percent from 2017 to a record 56.6 billion dirhams ($15.4 billion). The government cannot keep boosting spending at that speed indefinitely.Jim Krane, an energy fellow at Rice University in Texas and author of “City of Gold: Dubai and the Dream of Capitalism”, said the emirate faced structural challenges including an increasingly tough geopolitical environment.In the past, Dubai thrived by keeping cordial relations with every country in the region, accepting trade and investment from all of them.That has become impossible. Last year, the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia and other countries cut diplomatic and transport ties with Qatar, ending Dubai’s role as a base for business with the small but super-rich country.Goods that were once shipped to Qatar via Dubai now move via other countries, such as Oman or India; multinational firms use their European or U.S. offices, not their Dubai operations, to handle business with Qatar.Meanwhile, the United States and Gulf allies, including the UAE, are trying to squeeze Iran’s economy by reducing its financial and trade ties. The effort is more aggressive than Washington’s previous attempt to isolate Iran several years ago, diplomats in the region say.That matters because the UAE’s exports and re-exports to Iran, the vast majority via Dubai, totaled $19.9 billion in 2017.The chief executive of a foreign financial firm in Dubai said the emirate faced unprecedented competition from neighboring countries for capital, as low oil prices forced those countries to develop their own non-oil industries.Portfolio funds are already flowing from Dubai’s stock market to Saudi Arabia’s bourse. In coming years, the direct investment may follow; U.S. oilfield services firm McDermott International has said it expects to move business slowly from Dubai’s Jebel Ali Port to a new Saudi facility by the mid-2020s.Dubai is trying to shore up its competitive position. In the last few months, the government has said it will reduce municipal fees, scrap some aviation charges, freeze school costs and take other steps to aid foreign firms and residents. Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum, Prime Minister and Vice-President of the United Arab Emirates, and ruler of Dubai, attends the World Government Summit in DubaiReutersPotentially the most far-reaching reform was announced by the UAE cabinet, chaired by Dubai ruler Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum. It promised to permit 100 percent foreign ownership of some UAE-based businesses, up from the current 49 percent limit, and grant long-term residency visas of up to 10 years to foreign investors and some professionals.That could make foreign investment in Dubai more attractive and, by helping foreigners plan on a long-term residence in the emirate, encourage them to buy homes.But details of the new policy have not been released, and implementing it may be tricky. “Free zones” in Dubai already permit 100 percent foreign ownership; they could suffer if they no longer have that right exclusively. And many UAE citizens make money as silent partners with foreign businessmen.”To some extent, the economy is based on people renting out their passports – disrupting that could cause economic pain among the local population,” the financial executive said.last_img read more

Ava Duvernay Khadja Nin 80 Others Protest at Cannes

first_imgBy JAKE COYLE, AP Film WriterCANNES, France (AP) — Eighty-two women climbed the steps of the Palais des Festivals at the Cannes Film Festival in an unprecedented red carpet protest to press for improved gender equality in the film industry.The number of stars, filmmakers and film industry professionals ascending the steps represented the number of female filmmakers who have been selected to compete at Cannes during the festival’s seven-decade history.Jury members Kristen Stewart, from left, Lea Seydoux, Khadja Nin, Ava Duvernay, Cate Blanchett and director Agnes Varda walk the red carpet as part of 82 film industry professionals to represent, what they describe as pervasive gender inequality in the film industry, at the 71st international film festival, Cannes, southern France, Saturday, May 12, 2018. (Photo by Joel C Ryan/Invision/AP)In contrast to their 82, 1,866 films directed by men have been picked for the prestigious festival lineup.Organizers said the event was orchestrated by the Time’s Up movement and the French movement known as 5020×2020 to show “how hard it is still to climb the social and professional ladder” for women.It brought an array of film industry professionals to the Cannes red carpet, including actresses Salma Hayek and Jane Fonda, “Wonder Woman” filmmaker Patty Jenkins and French director Agnes Varda, a recipient of an honorary Palme d’Or at Cannes.Also joining were the five female members of this year’s Cannes jury: Cate Blanchett, Kristen Stewart, Ava DuVernay, Lea Seydoux and Burundian singer Khadja Nin. Blanchett read a statement atop the Palais steps in English; Varda read it in French.“Women are not a minority in the world, yet the current state of the industry says otherwise,” Blanchett said. “We stand together on these steps today as a symbol of our determination to change and progress.”“The stairs of our industry must be accessible to all,” she concluded. “Let’s climb.”The protest was held ahead of the premiere of French filmmaker Eva Husson’s “Girls of the Sun,” which is about a Kurdish battalion of women soldiers. Husson is one of three female filmmakers out of the 21 movies in competition for the Palme d’Or this year.The other two — Nadine Labaki’s “Capernaum,” and Alice Rohrwacher’s “Happy as Lazzaro” — are to premiere next week.Cannes has come under increasing scrutiny in recent years over the number of female directors selected into its main slate, considered one of the most esteemed achievements in cinema. Jane Campion is the only female filmmaker to ever win the Palme.The festival supported Saturday’s protest. Festival director Thierry Fremaux earlier this week hailed Saturday’s event as a way for women “to affirm their presence.”Fremaux has repeatedly insisted that the festival chooses its films purely based on quality. But he’s also signaled that the festival is reanalyzing its procedures and making its selection committees gender-balanced.last_img read more

Why we compost

first_imgGardening has a wonderful effect of reconnecting people to dirt. Dirt is Earths’ living skin, and it maintains all the kingdoms of life. Beneath the soil is a dark, microscopic world with a thriving community of beneficial microbes, insects and worms that decompose organic matter into humus and nutrients for the plants and trees.At the heart of a natural garden there’s a compost pile.The compost pile is used to recycle kitchen wastes, leaves, grass clippings, as well as manures. Instead of throwing all this organic matter in the garbage can, it can be recycled into rich, fertile soil. Each day, millions of tons of organic wastes are thrown into landfills, instead of being returned to the dirt. It’s estimated we could reduce landfills by 40 percent just by composting, not to mention greening the earth at the same time.  Composting has even got easier in Costa Rica, now that friendly microbiological cultures are available for your compost pile.EARTH University over in Guácimo piloted a project some years ago with EM or Efficient Microorganisms. EM was developed by Dr. Teruo Higa of Japan using microbes to efficiently ferment and digest organic waste. Over the years, Costa Ricans began experimenting with cultures of microbes for composting. For example, farmers often use a mix called MM or Microorganisms of the Mountain, which was created from rainforest soil communities. And recently a new product has been developed by a Costa Rican farming family, which is now available at most leading nurseries around the country. It’s called Base Biológica and marketed by Bio-Eco. You can check the website for a selection of gardening products at: years ago, our garden reached a point of exhaustion. Suddenly things just wouldn’t grow. That’s when I first used EM to return the life to my soils and the abundance to my garden. I’ve been using Base Biológica for about two years now and with very good results. By inoculating organic wastes, a fermentation process occurs and speeds up the decomposition, preventing odors. As you use this compost in your garden, these beneficial microbes thrive in your soil and prevent pathogenic microbes from taking over.You can also use composting cultures to clean drains and improve septic tank functions. Additionally, it can be sprayed on plants and trees to protect them from disease. If you have animals, you can spray the floors and manure to reduce odors and flies.By the way, there’s a must see documentary called “Dirt –The Movie” that explains it all in a very inspiring way. “Teaming with Microbes – The Organic Gardener’s Guide to the Soil Food Web” by Jeff Lowenfels and Wayne Lewis is another must-read for the dirt under the fingernail crowd.  As the rains come, let the gardening begin!For more information on tropical gardening – naturally – contact us at: or Facebook Comments Related posts:Versatile superfood thrives in tropical climate A closer look at a New Year’s tradition Cassava: tropical staple, drought-friendly… cancer-busting?
