Did Solomon, a man given to exhaustive research, ask about the veracity of ascension tales?
Who hath ascended up into heaven, or descended? who hath gathered the wind in his fists? who hath bound the waters in a garment? who hath established all the ends of the earth? what is his name, and what is his son’s name, if thou canst tell? Prov. 30:4
His grandson, thousands of years later, said no-one ever did. John 3:13
How many fables bite the dust with this piece of intelligence?
And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven.
When one considers that Peter, in addressing the veracity of statements that clamour for acceptance as reliable, contrasts God’s voice with fables, then one can conclude that there were many fables. The chief fable is still the first lie: you shall not certainly die.
Yeshua clears the clutter.
