The Professor speaks in this lecture about Jesus being an apocalyptic preacher, I hope he reads the comments just to see how I think in relation to what he is saying. Life happens in the blink of an eye, and then you go perhaps nowhere but a casket and the grave, or perhaps to the Kingdom of Heaven. When Jesus speaks about the coming Kingdom, to me it doesn't mean the Kingdom shall fall onto earth, but rather that it is after the mortal body passes. Then we are judged, and whatnot, I don't believe in any real punishment, say for Atheist for example, I believe it is merely a road that will lead to more enlightenment as to our purpose. I could be totally wrong, but that is why we are here for the Journey, and ultimately The Destination, "I AM", getting sidetracked here so let me just say, your mortal liofe is gone in the blink of an eye, then the Kingdom Comes, I know this probably isn't how an intellectual historian would look at it, but I have in my life seen the intervention of what can only be described as Divine, I know most people probably have also, but fail to realize it. I'm a Roman Catholic, but not practicing, but I believe reincarnation may exist, and you live until the point of Ascension, to The Holy Trinity. I know this course isn't so much about Faith, more historically what is proven or thought to be the Truth, all I ask is that you take this into consideration, anyone reading this. Alone we are powerless but with Faith we can move Mountains. Thank you for your time.
