11.5: web.relig/jc/rising from the dead is what dieties do:
. Jesus is referred to as kyrios (greek`Lord)
kyrios may refer to a diety,
and there are many dieties rising from the dead;
one who seems to rise from the dead
would tend to look like a diety;
hence even if there is evidence that
Jesus didn't die on the cross
those who wish to paint Jesus as a god
would ignore such evidence to promote their belief .
wiki`examples of the Dying-and-rising_god:
. the ancient Near Eastern and Greek deities
Baal, Melqart,Adonis, Eshmun, Tammuz,
Ra the Sun god with its fusion with Osiris/Orion,
Jesus, and Dionysus.
Female examples include
Inanna/Ishtar, Persephone, and Bari.
Some gods who die are also seen as either
returning or bringing about life in some other form,
in many cases associated with a vegetation deity
related to a staple.
In Ancient Greece,
a woman could not enter into a contract herself
and arrangements were made by her guardian or Kurios.
In some cases, when reading the Hebrew Bible
the Jews would substitute Adonai (my Lord)
for the Tetragrammaton
(the written representation of the Name of God),
and they may have also substituted Kurios
when reading to a Greek audience
(as in the Septuagint translation).
The Greek word Kyrios (Κύριος) means "lord, Lord, master".
In religious usage it designates God.
. one consequence of the use of kyrios
to refer to Jesus in the New Testament
is that almost all Old Testament references to God
(except God the Father and the Holy Spirit)
can then apply to Jesus.
