Guidance available on Good Friday for researching the claim that the crucifixion of Jesus was a near death experience.
This Good Friday the public is invited to the Redmond Regional Library conference room to discuss the near death experience of Jesus son of Mary (peace be upon him). The conference will explore the claim that Jesus was removed from the cross in a coma, revived, took his message to the lost tribes of Israel, and died in Kashmir, India around 2,000 years ago. The forum which will be held from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm on March 25th will discuss books and internet resources about the peaceful life and death of Jesus according to the claims of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad of Qadian, the founder of Ahmadiyya Muslim Community. In the late 19th century he wrote a book in Urdu entitled Masih Hindustan mein which has been translated and published in English as Jesus in India. Mirza Ghulam Ahmad explains that Biblical and Muslim scriptures, as well as other old books including ancient Buddhist records provide evidence of Jesus in India after his recovery from a near death experience at the time of the crucifixion.
Signs of God Almighty supporting the claims of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad of Qadian (peace be upon him) make this topic even more relevant. Violent opposition for the past 125 years has not deterred the spread of this message. The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community embraces this alternate story of the resurrection of Jesus and shares a global view of the ultimate Resurrection for all humanity. Ahmadi Muslims act more like kind Christians or gentle Buddhists. They encourage others to think about religious teachings and practices based on revelation, rationality, reason, and truth.
