    Victor Barnard's protectors and right hand men

    Good Lord! Sounds like Barnard & crew took lessons from David Berg of the Children of God cult fame.

    Revival and Restoration Group: Another Coconut Monkey Trap

    A family member recently told me about an attempted "casting out" incident that she witnessed in the BRC sometime between 1971-1973. She was only about 8-10 years old at the time and most of the details have been forgotten. Apparently there was a guy who tried to cast a "devil spirit" out of another man but the the guy attempting the casting out landed flat on his back. Anybody remember this?

    Right, and the explanation that Christ was actually crucified on the preparation day and not on Passover day comes from John 19:31: Now it was the day of Preparation, and the next day was to be a special Sabbath. Because the Jewish leaders did not want the bodies left on the crosses during the Sabbath, they asked Pilate to have the legs broken and the bodies taken down. So in 30AD, if the dates are accurate, the preparation day for the back-to-back sabbaths would have been on a Thursday.

    DWBH, the more I read about VPW, the more I realize that he was a scam artist as well as a lunatic. There was nothing that he came up with that was his own material. It was all stolen from others. I can't believe there are still people who think he was a great teacher.

    Here is the way I understand this 30AD theory from everything I've read: The actual day of Passover was Friday April 7th but it actually began at the sundown the evening before which would have been Thursday April 6th. So the special sabbath(Passover) fell on the preparation day(Friday). The sabbaths were 2-in-a-row, Friday & Saturday. TLC, yes I've read about the 28AD theory as well which would have placed Christ's birth at 6BC, maybe March 22nd or 23rd. That one is very interesting since Herod the Great died in 4BC. 2 years before that is 6BC.

    Raf, Passovers were special sabbaths. I read somewhere that In 30AD the preparation day for Passover would have been on Thursday. If you count the remaining day on Thursday(30AD) which would not have been very long, maybe an hour or so of daylight when Christ's body was put into the tomb, then it is possible to count 3 days & nights although it would have been just a partial day on Thursday.

    I agree 100% DWBH. but I'm referring to TWI's official position.

    Exactly Raf! However, I made a correction based on other Jewish calendars that I came across on the net. The 34AD date would place Jesus at least 34 years old and 36 years if he was born 3 BC.

    It's been so long since I've read JCOP that I've forgotten which year TWI set for Christ's crucifixion. I remember that according to TWI the crucifixion must have been on a Wednesday and the resurrection must have been on a Saturday to fulfill the "3 days & nights" prophecy. According to Jewish calendars this Wed -Sat timeline could only occur in 34AD. Tradition has the crucifixion occurring on Friday April 3rd 33AD & the resurrection occurring on Sunday April 5th. Correction - It could have been 28AD, 31AD, 34AD

    Name that Tune

    this is from the last verse of the song so it might be hard to figure out. I think the one's who grew up in the 60s would recognize

    Name that Tune

    I actually miss those cheezy 80's pop rock tunes. Some friends of mine when I was in middle school were in a band and played one of Survivor's other songs titled " Eye of the Tiger" at the school's talent show. This one I believe is called Can't Hold Back.

    Very good information here Penworks. Abuses within these special relationships appear to be rampant these days. If a family member didn't have 27 years of medical experience, several mistakes by PCPs and Hospitalists that were caught by this family member would have killed my mother. It seems once one hits 90 in our modern system , a common phrases starts popping up: "her body is shutting down" and "you should consider Hospice"...although her blood work and vitals suggest otherwise.
