The Gospel of Matthew, Chapter 28, verse 2:” And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it

“Jesus of Nazareth … Whom God hath raised up, having loosed the pains of death: because it was not possible that he should be holden of it.”

..I once wrote and played with guitar. Now with a flute. The text to the song here on the video is swedish. The english text (without rhyming) could be something like the one you’ll find here down below.

 

 

One night in the stormy course of time
all the world stand still
and frozen shepherds abandons
their warm place by the hearth

One night when kings stands up
and travels without crew
to a tiny little place
in Judean landscape

One night when the stable becomes a temple
and the temple becomes a market hall
and one poor maiden gives birth to God
one night so deep and cold

O child, you are more than fire
more than crew and troops
You’re filling us with holy faith
that dissolves the snares of death

Jesus spoke in parables in the three so-called synoptic Gospels – Matthew, Mark and Luke – sometimes he really seems to think aloud:

Whereunto shall we liken the kingdom of God?” – Mark.4:30

But in the Gospel of John, he sort of abandoned the “liken-unto” kind of talk, and start to express “being” more frequently. He does not say “I am likened unto a wine”, but he says:

I am ..the wine” – John 15: 1

This kind of mysterious transitions between what something or someone is compared to, and what something or someone is, one may find examples of also in the Song of Solomon:

I am the rose of Sharon, and the lily of the valleys.” – Song of Solomon 2:1

 

Someone is
