9781517403645: Jesus Christ: The Invisible Poet: Uncovering the Hidden and Revolutionary Poetic Message of Jesus (Poetry from Jesus, The Gospels and The New Testament) (Volume 1)

For the past two thousand years, Jesus Christ has been one of the greatest gifts and one of the greatest mysteries in the world. History is full of books and poems that honor and glorify Jesus, and many scholars have studied Jesus' teachings. In The Invisible Poet for the first time, Jesus Christ emerges not only as the Son of God but also as the greatest poet who has ever lived. This book studies Jesus' words in their original poetic form, the same form that the Disciples heard directly from Christ. Jesus Christ : The Invisible Poet examines Jesus' use of Hebrew poetic traditions in his parables and poetry, bringing a new understanding to the gospels and message of Christ. Now you can experience Jesus' teachings in their original, ancient tradition. Despite this proliferation of poetry throughout the Bible, readers rarely equate Scripture with poetry, perhaps because we are most accustomed to reading poetry written in the Western tradition. To the Western eye, Scripture initially appears more like prose than poetry, mainly because Scripture typically does not rhyme. Therein lies the key to missing Christ's importance as a poet. Jesus was a poet of Hebrew tradition; Jesus worked in the language of poetics and he used poetry to share his Gospel. This book concludes beyond question that Jesus is the greatest poet of all time, that he is the invisible poet in his parables and proclamations, working all the while within traditional Hebrew poetic structure. Jesus is indeed a personality who worked for the betterment of humanity. This book traces the Master in his use of every substantial form of Hebrew poetry. Having such a demonstration of poetic mastery, we may well inquire with the wondering throng at Jerusalem, when they heard the gracious words which proceeded out of His mouth. "How," said they, "does this Man know letters, having never learned.?" It is the perennial wonder of mediocrity in the presence of genius. Let us then not deny him this praise, which even his enemies were forced to concede. We may hail Jesus as the Man of Letters. In presenting the poems of Jesus, we may well begin with Matthew, for this Gospel professedly contains his Logia, set forth at length, and hence we may expect that here, if anywhere, the form will have been preserved. It would be unreasonable to look for the exactness that the original text might possess. However, a certain sympathy also exists between the English version and the more primitive language; that sympathy has tended to recover the balance of expression. In part, the sympathy is due to the tremendous influence of the Scriptures in the development of English speech; it also arises from the fact that the first crude rendition of the Scriptures into the common speech of the Anglo-Saxons was by certain wandering bards who chanted the story of the Christ, and thus associated the gospels with a melodic flavor that has characterized all subsequent versions. The conclusion on this subject is very simple and practical: despite the fact that much of its poetic essence has been lost over time, Christ’s words can be studied today through the prism of poetry, on the level of theory. If we look at religious ceremonies and rituals of almost all Christian denominations and religious communities, we notice that believers in fact sing the verses of the gospel and Christ’s words. No matter what the particular language is, or the translation, the essential nature of Jesus’ legacy is a lyrical one. In any language, Jesus emerges as the greatest poet the world has known.
