Is there science in history? Is Jesus a historical figure that was thought
of as more than a man? Did He calim to be God? Did others claim that
He was God?

Saved from what? Your own innate foolishness. And now you have
a desire to treat others as you would be treated...etc? The salvation
I speak of is eternal. Not from one incarnation to another.

Yet His own claims extend far beyond any of the other masters.

As any learned Christian, we are to respect the Nation of Israel. After
the Lord's second coming there will be the reaping of the 144,000 jews
who will be martyred and be great witnesses during the great tribulation.
Beware the Mark of the Beast & When you see the Temple being built
in Jerusalem...remember that the prophecies are continuing to be fulfilled.
Time is short. 40 months? 40 years?
