During the holidays, i noticed that my cable company provided one history channel for free thats normally for paying customers. I managed to record 1 hour document about Jesus family relations.
Document covered the topic of Jesus family from perspective of how things where during that time and how the change happened from Judeo Christian religion to just christian faith as things are now. I guess most of the parts in the document where part of book and thesis by James Tabor, Chair of the Department of Religious Studies at the University of North Carolina at Charlott. He has released a book called Jesus Dynasty which covers this same topic. James was also interviewed for this document.
From point of view as rastafari this document had some really interesting thoughts. Im not personally educated on historical matters so i cant vouch them to be accurate but it gave me some thoughts to reason about.
But lets recap some basic dogmas that are "rampart" in rasta movement before i go on to the actual document and thoughts it raised on me. Notice thou that im not saying that these are not my views, they are just some topics that i've noticed from time to time in various reasonings.
