Gospel for Tenth Sunday in Ordinary Time: Did Jesus get his power to cast out demons from the Prince of Demons? #gospel…
//The scribes who had come from Jerusalem said, "He is possessed by Beelzebul," and "By the prince of demons he drives out demons." (Mk 3:22) #Gospel
//Beelzebub or Beelzebul is a name derived from a Philistine god, formerly worshipped in Ekron, and later adopted by some Abrahamic religions as a major demon. The name Beelzebub is associated with the Canaanite god Baal. #demonology #religion
"Beelzebub! Has a devil put aside for me for me?"--Queen #music #BohemianRhapsody
//26 And if Satan has risen up against himself and is divided, he cannot stand; that is the end of him. 27 But no one can enter a strong man’s house to plunder his property unless he first ties up the strong man. Then he can plunder his house. (Mk 3:26-27) #Gospel #stronger
Jesus is stronger than Satan. Christ is the strong man who plundered Satan's house. (c.f. Mk 3:27) #Gospel #Christianity
"Mel Gibson tells Colbert 'The Resurrection' could feature Jesus in Hell" #Filmmaker #Christianity #MoviesShownInHell…
"There are several verses in the Bible which address directly what many have interpreted as Jesus's descent into Hell to set free its captives" (Acts 2:24, Ephesians 4:9, 1 Peter 3:9).--Gregory Tomlin #prisonbreak #Gospel
"There are also others in the Old Testament that could possibly allude to such a then future event undertaken by God's Messiah" (Zechariah 9:11, Hosea 13:14). --Gregory Tomlin #Bible #JesusChrist
"The Apostles' Creed makes reference to Jesus descending into Hell (interpreting 1 Peter 3:9), but the phrase is not in the earliest existing copy of the creed – that of Bishop Marcellus of Ancyra from around A.D. 337."--Gregory Tomlin #Christianity #CREDO
"633 Scripture calls the abode of the dead, to which the dead Christ went down, "hell" - Sheol in Hebrew or Hades in Greek - because those who are there are deprived of the vision of God."--Catechism of the Catholic Church #Linguistics #Theology…
"633...It is precisely these holy souls, who awaited their Savior in Abraham's bosom, whom Christ the Lord delivered when he descended into hell." #Catechism #Catholic #SaviorOfTheWorld
"633... Jesus did not descend into hell to deliver the damned, nor to destroy the hell of damnation, but to free the just who had gone before him." #Catechism #Catholic #PrisonBreak
"635... Jesus, "the Author of life", by dying destroyed "him who has the power of death, that is, the devil, and [delivered] all those who through fear of death were subject to lifelong bondage." #Catechism #Catholic #Death
An hour of reflection has passed. It is time to rest. Hopefully, I now have sufficient material for a blog post on Jesus and Beelzebub. #blogging #gospel
I need a cover photo for my blog post. Something on Jesus and Beelzebub, e.g. The Devil depicted in The Temptation of Christ, by Ary Scheffer, 1854. #blogging #iconography…
Another possible image is Jacob Wrestling with the Angel by Alexander Louis Leloir (1865). #painting #Christianity…
