April in Paris! What a perfect time to visit the world’s most beautiful city! Mitchell and Margaret Ritchie had decided to take a well-earned holiday from their responsibilities in New York. Their eldest son was following in his father’s footsteps and had become an officer in the marines; their younger son was in a business school being groomed to take over Mitchell’s business when he retired. Margaret was now active in social services, especially those concerning fallen women and unwed mothers. It was a Saturday, and they were moving slowly through the collection of art and artifacts in one of the world’s greatest museums: the Louvre.

Was Jesus Crucified?

In this book, Agron Belica offers a fresh interpretation of the momentous events on a hillock beyond the walls of Jerusalem nearly two millennia ago: the Crucifixion. Belica asks disconcerting questions about the received version of gospel “history” and gives free rein to his inquisitive nature. Many of his ideas and speculations will strike the casual reader schooled in the ancient Biblical Traditions with which they conflict as unhistorical, impossible, and unbelievable. Yet, when questioning established premises, the impossible may often be shown to be possible, as Socrates was fond of doing.

In his latest song, Agron Belica throws down his gauntlet before the artistic world. While paraphrasing the wisdom of the revolutionary Spanish painter Pablo Picasso and invoking the spirit of the great Persian poet and mystic, Jallaluddin Rumi and his whirling dervish followers, Agron takes his stand and demands to be heard. Well done, Agron! Yours is a voice and a message to be reckoned with. Pay attention, world!

As an avid reader of the Holy Bible, how many countless times have you drawn your own interpretations, and conclusions? How many versions of the Bible have you read, comparing ancient manuscripts to modern day Scripture?

As an open minded reader in faith, and Christianity, has your bias lead you directly to extensive research on the words, and works of Christ? Is it possible that Jesus did not die on the cross?

 

John the Baptist, Not Jesus on the Cross?

 Global News Centre Special Report

(BOSTON) – Recent research embodied in a new book by Agron Belica invites our attention to the predicament of John the Baptist, popularly known for little more than the story of his beheading by order of Herod Antipas at the behest of a seductive dancing girl, the infamous Salome.

His book, The Passion of the Baptist, Not the Christ, arguing from the chronological and historical evidence provided by the ancient Jewish historian Josephus and the New Testament about John, demonstrates that the story of his beheading is almost certainly spurious. Comparison with the writings of Josephus gives the lie to this scenario for, as the detailed scrutiny and evaluation of Josephus’s text shows, Herod Antipas probably did not order John’s execution until 36 CE, half a dozen years later than most datings of the event of the crucifixion. Belica suggests that it was the Prophet Yahya (John the Baptist) who was placed on the cross and survived the ordeal and not Jesus, in a case of mistaken identity.

“The three essays by Agron Belica included in this little volume represent preparatory steps in the assembling of his revolutionary theories about John the Baptist/Yahya. The results of his studies achieved their full treatment in The Passion of the Baptist, Not the Christ, a controversial book that vigorously challenges the conventional view of John as little more than the baptizer of Jesus and the herald of his messiahship. The John/Yahya that Belica’s work has brought forth from the shadows of history is a major prophet in his own right with an independent stature and mission. These articles concentrate principally on the Islamic side of his theses.” —Dr. Jay R. Crook, author of The Bible: An Islamic Perspective series
