Question: Was Jesus familiar with the concept of reincarnation?
Answer from ascended master Jesus through Kim Michaels:
This question might seem shocking to many orthodox Christians, yet I have a good reason for asking you to consider it. Let us begin with historical facts. The concept of reincarnation has been part of religious life on this planet for as far back as we have recorded history (and indeed much longer).
When I walked the earth, there were many groups and sects in Israel that believed in reincarnation. Recent archaeological discoveries have shown that I was affiliated with the Essene community at Quamram. The Essenes believed in reincarnation.
I have told you that I traveled to the East and studied and practiced the religions of Hinduism and Buddhism. These religions teach reincarnation.
Therefore, I think even the most orthodox Christians should be able to accept the idea that Jesus Christ was indeed familiar with the concept of reincarnation.
Now, let us expand our question a bit and consider whether there any indications of reincarnation in the scriptures. Consider the passage that describes how I healed a man who was blind from birth. After the healing, my disciples asked me: “Who did sin, this man or his parents?”
Consider why my disciples would ask such a question? Obviously, my disciples must have believed that it was possible for this man to have brought his blindness upon himself. Yet, the man was born blind. When could he possibly have sinned? I know that some theologians reason that he must have sinned in the womb, but does that honestly make sense to you?
NOTE: The rest of this answer is avbailable in the book: The Mystical Teachings of Jesus.
