Is Heaven real? Have you seen the movie called "Heaven Is For Real"? About the little boy who had a near-death experience? He came back and told his parents that heaven IS for real...It got us to thinking about that subject again...The Urantia Book sure is full of information about it. Have a look!

PETER WINS 2,000 CONVERTS!

Officials are stunned as the apostles of Jesus come out of hiding to preach

JERUSALEM, MAY 18, AD 30

At two o’clock this afternoon, at the Jewish festival of Pentecost, Simon Peter preached the sermon of his life in the very spot at the temple where Jesus gave his last sermon. The story of the resurrection of Jesus seemed to have great power with the people. Five other apostles were with Peter: Andrew, James, John, Philip and Matthew. The six apostles talked for more than an hour and a half, and delivered the gospel message in Greek, Hebrew and Aramaic.

By four o’clock, two thousand people followed the apostles down to the pool of Siloam where Peter, Andrew, James and John baptized them in the name of Jesus. It was dark by the time the mass baptism was finished.

Religious leaders are baffled

One Sanhedrin official here expressed astonishment at the incident. “It was like a bad dream,” he said. “The apostles have been in hiding for forty days. Now they emerge boldly and begin to preach this new message of a risen Messiah. It’s as though they have been endowed with some extraordinary new power.”

It appears that officials are unwilling to interfere with the apostles because large numbers of people believe their story.

We want to join all of humanity in celebrating the birth of Jesus of Nazareth! Even though people celebrate his coming on different days, the joyousness and gratitude we all feel at the beloved Creator Son's arrival on our dark world has to be shared! 

Happy Birthday Jesus!

INTERPLANETARY BULLETIN

THE WORLD AFTER PENTECOST

AFTER PENTECOST the sect of the believers of Jesus was growing, and once more the Sadducees took notice of them. The Pharisees were little bothered about the situation, seeing that none of the teachings in any way interfered with the observance of the Jewish laws.

But the Sadducees began to put the leaders of the Jesus sect in jail until they were prevailed upon to accept the counsel of one of the leading rabbis, Gamaliel, who advised them: “Refrain from persecuting these men and women, let them alone, for if this counsel or this work is of men, it will be overthrown; but if it is of God, you will not be able to overthrow them, and you may even find yourselves to be fighting against God.”

The Sadducees decided to follow the counsel of Gamaliel. There ensued a short interval of peace and quiet in Jerusalem. And the teachings of Jesus spread rapidly. All went well until the Greek believers began arriving in Jerusalem. The Greeks had a different viewpoint that again brought the believers into serious conflict with the Jewish leaders. Stephen, the leader of the Greek colony of Jesus believers in Jerusalem, was stoned to death, becoming their first martyr.

Less than a month later, the disciples concluded that they could no longer remain a sect within the Jewish faith, and organized the church which was subsequently called Christianity. So it was that nineteen hundred years ago, sincere believers inspired by the Spirit of Truth went forth and turned the whole Roman Empire upside down.

These early leaders of Christianity unintentionally transformed the religion of Jesus into a religion about Jesus, but even that represented the greatest religion humankind had ever known. Nevertheless, it remains a fact that this new message about Jesus carried along with it many of the truths and teachings of his earlier gospel of the kingdom. And, sooner or later, these concealed truths of the fatherhood of God and the fellowship of his children will emerge to effectually transform the civilization of all humankind.

The twenty-first century has brought new problems for Christianity and all other religions to solve. Christianity has indeed done a great service for this world, but what is now most needed is Jesus. The world needs to see Jesus living again on Earth in the experience of spirit-born mortals who effectively reveal the Master to all humankind. And when Jesus becomes thus lifted up, he will draw all beings to himself.

Religion needs new leaders, spiritual men and women who will dare to depend solely on Jesus and his incomparable teachings. Jesus revealed and exemplified a religion of love: security in the Father’s love, with joy and satisfaction consequent upon sharing this love in the service of the human family. The religion of Jesus provides the joy and peace of a spiritual consciousness to enhance and ennoble the life which modern men and women now live on Earth.

TruthBook.com spreads the teachings in the Urantia Book, especially the Life and Teachings of Jesus.
Introduction

TruthBook is a website that spreads the teachings in the Urantia Book, especially the Life and Teachings of Jesus. TruthBook's primary target is searching Christians who want more answers than their current religious teachings provide. TruthBook is a branded way of saying The Urantia Book.

Urantia Book is smart religion. It answers questions that you don't normally find in the Bible, Koran, etc. such as the origin and destiny of the cosmos, details about God, world history, life after death, the inhabited universe, angels, and the entire life and teachings of Jesus. If practiced, the teachings in the Urantia Book can transform your life.

If you follow the Jesus in the Bible and want to understand and experience him even better, read the Urantia Book.
