Please, enlighten me on these accounts.
And while you’re at it, give me a historical time frame, and specific populations that could have been used to verify at the time.
the problem with the majority of claims from Hindu and other eastern belief structures is that they are all mythic, i.e., they do not take place in a defined time frame, merely “long long ago.” They are not fixed in history, but rather are fluid legends that changed with time to suit the needs of a particular period.
The Bible is not like this. Apart from the very beginning of Genesis, (written in the form of histroic allegory), the Bible takes place in a very definite historical time frame. While it may seem ancient to us, at the time of writing these people were very much alive, and the accounts could easily be verified. That is specifically why the Gospel writers gave us specific names and places, they are written in the format of historical documentation, to be as easily verified as possible.
It’s true that anyone who could verify the accounts is long since dead to us, but as I pointed out in my post above, these were not stupid people. They did not simply believe anything some random Dick or Jane told them was true. The Christian Gospel presents extreme, outlandish claims that, had they been false, would have been incredibly easy to disprove, not least of which was the literal Resurrection of Christianity’s central figure. This is, again , a specific event set in a very well defined historical context, not some mythic event that happened in the long forgotten past like the Hindu religious texts.
