If Christ appears to them as a "young man" the question might be asked, is this a reference to Jesus of Nazareth or simply a way of relaying to the people a spiritual experience in a manner they would get a greater understanding through the familar.  Actually the word Christ, I've been told, means the Anointed One or that one the Holy Spirit descended upon ...


If you think the "young man" was Jesus of Nazareth does that mean He can metamorphosize into whatever human figure He wishes.  Now the question becomes, why?

Why not? A being that supposedly can walk through walls, walk on water, ascend into the sky unaided by any means of mechanical propulsion (mind you, he might have been beamed up to the Fathership), appear on shower walls and atop iced muffins shouldn't have much difficulty appearing in any shape or form he wanted to, should he?

Well I don't know Namchuck!  I'll have to leave that one to nnn123 to answer ...

Well, you asked the question.





But you answered my question with a question!  Plus, no offence intended, but I'm interested in nnn123's answer ...

Wouldn't have prevented you answering it, though, would it?


Otherwise, fair enough, but expect to be directed away by nnn123 to view a video as substitute for an answer.
