Did Jesus raise boy from the dead?

By By Larry Mullins and Joan Batson Mullins

NAIN, AD 28

A flurry of excitement has been generated here by the most sensational miracle yet from Jesus of Nazareth. When Jesus arrived in the city yesterday, he came across the funeral procession of a young boy. The dead lad was the only son of a widow, who asked not to be identified. It was reported that the unfortunate woman pleaded with Jesus to return her son to life. Jesus is said to have raised the covering of the bier and after a moment declared:

“Weep not. Your son is not dead; he sleeps,” and then taking the hand of the lad said: “Awake and arise.” Upon the words of Jesus, the boy stirred, sat up and began to speak.

A tumultuous excitement has gripped the city. Jesus insists that the boy was really in a deep sleep, and only appeared to be dead. He says he intervened to avoid a tragic error. Skeptics, for once, agree and insist that this was certainly the case. They point out that a general hysteria is causing many who imagine themselves ill to also imagine themselves cured. But the vast majority of onlookers are convinced that Jesus has miraculous powers. Jesus apparently left during the excitement he stirred up. His whereabouts are not known.

New healing in city of Iron

By By Larry Mullins and Joan Batson Mullins

IRON, AD 28

News of the healing of a leper by Jesus today ended speculation that he was no longer able to perform healing miracles. The unidentified man declared that he had managed to encounter Jesus in the streets and pleaded with him to perform a cure. The man stated that he knew he could never be accepted into the kingdom because of his affliction, and he told this to Jesus. “He touched me, and I was clean once more!” the man asserted.

Reportedly, Jesus had requested the afflicted man be silent about the cure. Some believers in Jesus have expressed the opinion that although no physical affliction could ever keep a person out of the kingdom, the leper sincerely believed his ailment could do so. For this reason, they express the opinion that Jesus took pity on the leper and healed him.

Jesus has been ministering here in the mines, teaching and preaching. The fame of Jesus as a healer has spread to this remote village, and many sick and afflicted are seeking help at his hands. Many have been greatly benefited by his healing ministry.

Thomas asks an important question

By By Larry Mullins and Joan Batson Mullins

“How can I know for certain if I am in the kingdom of God?” Thomas, an apostle of Jesus, asked this question of Jesus today. As usual, Jesus made the complex question sound simple, as he said: “While you cannot observe the divine spirit at work in your minds, there is a practical method of discovering the degree to which you have yielded the control of your soul powers to the teaching and guidance of this indwelling spirit of the heavenly Father, and that is the degree of your love for your fellows.

“Every earth child who follows the leading of the spirit shall eventually know the will of God, and he who surrenders to the will of my Father shall abide forever. The way from the earth life to the eternal estate has not been made plain to you, but there is a way, there always has been, and I have come to make that way new and living. He who enters the kingdom has eternal life already—he shall never perish.”

All who heard these blessed words were greatly cheered. The Jewish teachings had been confused and uncertain regarding the survival of the righteous, and it was refreshing and inspiring for Jesus’ followers to hear these very definite and positive words of assurance about the eternal survival of all true believers.

Decius tells of tutor's unique views on money

By By Larry Mullins and Joan Batson Mullins

ROME, AD 23

A wealthy Stoic here has developed a new way to administer wealth. His surprising theories have impressed many people. Decius, a Roman citizen, declared that his method involved dividing his wealth into ten grand categories based upon their source: Inherited wealth, Discovered wealth, Trade wealth, Unfair wealth, Interest wealth, Genius wealth, Accidental wealth, Stolen wealth, Trust Fund wealth and Earned wealth. Decius emphasized that none of his holdings fell into the Unfair or Stolen categories, but he presented them to show the complete theory.

“A Jewish tutor friend who is visiting Rome advised me to administer material wealth as a wise and effective trustee of the resources of one generation for the benefit and ennoblement of the next and succeeding generations.” Decius added: “He said a guiding principle is to see all of humankind as brethren and to treat each person as you would wish to be treated. This attitude, augmented by justice, honesty and fairness, will help one solve any specific question of appropriate economic rewards in each category.” The tutor is not a professional economist, but Decius insists his advice is better than any he has ever received. “And, he did not even charge me a fee for his advice,” Decius added.

Today With Tiberius

By By Larry Mullins and Joan Batson Mullins

The emperor Tiberius was in good spirits today and spent an unusual amount of time with a delegation of two from distant India. The duo, Gonod and his son Ganid, brought greetings from the princes of their native land, which is located far to the east of the frontiers of the empire. The Indians were accompanied by an interpreter and scribe who also spoke at some length with the emperor. Tiberius was very impressed with the man and acknowledged the unusual skill and exceptionally amiable manner of this Jewish scribe from Damascus. Tiberius was overheard telling an aide: “If I had that fellow's kingly bearing and gracious manner, I would be a real emperor, eh?”

Attack on slave foiled by Jew

By By Larry Mullins and Joan Batson Mullins

CRETE, AD 22

A young slave girl was rescued from an attacker today by a visiting Jewish interpreter and scribe. The incident occurred in Fair Havens. The attacker, apparently intoxicated, reportedly was beating the girl when a powerful young Jew intervened.

According to witnesses, the rescuer seemed to effortlessly hold the drunken man at bay while protecting the girl. “The attacker exhausted himself flailing at the air,” said one observer. The girl was escorted safely home by the Jew and his employers, a businessman and his son from India.

Some expressed surprise that the Jew did not strike the drunken man. One onlooker said: “He should have gotten at least as many licks as he gave the girl.” The Jewish scribe could not be reached for comment.

Jonah and the whale...did it happen?

By By Larry Mullins and Joan Batson Mullins

JOPPA, AD 22

Yesterday a visiting Jewish scholar addressed a question that has challenged many who wonder whether the Jewish scriptures are literal truth. According to Gadiah, a Philistine interpreter, the Jewish tutor explained the story as illustrative of the dilemma of humankind.

“We all seek to escape our destinies, much as did Jonah,” said Gadiah. “According to Joshua*, the Jewish scribe, we humans too often flee from our duties at hand, to far-off enticements. Such a flight can only cause pain and sorrow, and eventual captivity in darkness, much like the belly of the whale was for Jonah. But if such individuals sincerely seek light and truth they will be ejected by the circumstances of life onto the shore of new opportunities … upon the beach of the freedom of loving service and wise living.”

Asked whether the story of Jonah is literally true, Gadiah seemed perplexed. “You know, Joshua never really said whether it was literally true or not. I guess he implied that, at least, the story illustrates a great truth.”

*Jesus was often known as Joshua on this journey.

Execution of gentile questioned

By By Larry Mullins and Joan Batson Mullins

JERUSALEM, MONDAY, APRIL 18, AD 7

A mild controversy arose in the temple discussions yesterday when a youth questioned the justice of the recent execution of a gentile who had wandered into the sacred precincts of the temple. The man was in a drunken state at the time. A lively discussion about the fairness of the punishment ensued. When it was discovered that the lad who challenged the propriety of the punishment was only twelve years of age, a rabbi insisted that he leave the group immediately. But other teachers defended the youth since he had been duly consecrated and was a certified graduate of the schools of Nazareth. Some asserted that he was nearly thirteen and the age factor was a technicality. “I like the boy,” said one of his supporters. “He asks remarkable questions, and he is always deeply sincere and respectful.” A detractor countered: “When I heard he was from Nazareth it explained everything. As they say: ‘Can any good thing come out of Nazareth?’”

Jesus considers his earthly career

By By Larry Mullins and Joan Batson Mullins

JERUSALEM, Planet of Earth, APRIL 8, AD 7

The mind of Jesus was swept by a flood of spiritual illumination today as he watched the Passover multitudes. The twelve-year-old’s heart was moved to great compassion and sympathy for their spiritual blindness. Tonight, a mighty angel appeared to Jesus and said: “The hour has come. It is time that you began to be about your Father’s business.” This was the first supernatural event of his bestowal in human flesh. Thus, on the night before the Passover Sabbath, the youth began consideration of his earth career as the deliverer of humankind.

Mesopotamians seek baby

By By Larry Mullins and Joan Batson Mullins

JERUSALEM, 7 BC

Several Chaldean priests are reportedly on a strange mission in Jerusalem. Their leader, Ardnon, declared yesterday that they were looking for “the light of life,” a child who is to be born here among the Jews. One of the priests referred to a teacher in Ur who disclosed a vivid dream he had about this prophesy. Some speculate that the rumored birth could be that of the “Messiah,” the legendary deliverer of Israel. The priests left for Bethlehem today, possibly on the advice of a high official at the temple here. A spokesman for King Herod cautioned that speculation about a new king was not in the interests of Israel.
