There is no religion or belief (as far as I know) that isn’t full of supernatural stories and mysteries; hence, so isn’t Christianity. While Bible is said to have a solution to everything, there still are a few mysteries that are unanswered till date. So, let’s talk about 3 of them today.
What is the holy trinity & its mystery? It is a believed in Christianity that there is only one true God, the divine substance, yet 2 divine persons uniting to form the Holy Trinity i.e. God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. Trinity is addressed as the mystery of faith as it cannot be known unless it is revealed by God himself. In simple words, the Holy Trinity is the central mystery of Christian believes, faith, life & God.
Birth of Jesus
From the mention of virgin birth of Jesus to the time, the birth of Jesus has been a topic of research and findings for years. While a few believe that Mother Mary conceived and gave birth to Jesus through the power of Holy Spirits and not through a sexual intercourse; there are others who feel that the concept arrived from a mistranslation translation of a text of Herbew Bible.
Another mystery related to the birth of Jesus is the time of his birth. Though most people celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ on December 25th, there are many who argue against it. Dave Reneke, an astronomer, in 2008 suggested that the Star of Bethlehem could actually be Venus and Jupitar coming together to form a bright light in the sky (that was apparently seen at the birth of Jesus Christ). Using computer models, he determined that this rare event happened on 17thJune in the year 2 B.C. Now while we do not have Mother Mary physically present to tell us the truth, the actual fact still remains a mystery.
Resurrection of Jesus Christ
While we all know that Mary Magdalene first encountered the risen Jesus where she didn’t recognize the figure standing before her until Jesus spoke to her. She then, on Jesus’s command, enlightened the other disciples about the same where all except for Thomas (who wasn’t present there at the time) believed her. Thomas demanded proof for the same, which he got a week later. While we all see ourselves in this story, where some of us believe in the resurrection while some demand proof. But the actual fact of Jesus’s resurrection, not in his spiritual form but bodily form, remains an unsolved mystery of all times.
