Just for gags, is there any indication the reincarnation exists according to the Bible?

  1. Gags is the right word
    see most folks who believe in reincarnation or any other kind of afterlife besides heaven pretty much think that the Bible is full of bull anyway

  2. No, sorry about that. Not any version of the Christian bible promotes, or tells of reincarnation. Life is a one shot deal.

  3. Friend,
    Well, this is not “gag,” but truth. There is a form of reincarnation in the Bible, but not the way you think. The Bible teaches a resurrection from the dead in which all who have ever lived will live again. Reicarnation simply means to bring to life that was once dead; however, humans do not come back as some other creature.
    John 5:28 Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice, 29 And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation (Gr. judgment).
    Good luck.

  4. that’s sad that people memorized little number things of the bible 😡
    9:27 Hebrew: blah blah blah
    HOW DO YOU JUST
    REMEMBER RANDOM SNIPPETS OF THE BIBLE?
    HOW LONG OF THEIR LIFE DID THEY WASTE ON IT!?
    🙁

  5. There are some who think so – check out the link below. The most intriguing to me is Jesus asking “Who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?” (John 9:2) – how could the man have sinned before he was born if there’s no reincarnation?
    There’s also some suggestion that reincarnation was pretty uncontroversial to early Christians.
    However, reincarnation in Christianity is pretty much a stretch!

  6. No, the Bibles says humans only die ONCE and they come back to live once (if they have not committed unpardonable sin in their first life, in which case they do not get a resurrection at all).
    Hebrews 9:27 KJV
    27And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:
    Rev. 20 KJV
    13And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.
    14And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
    After they get out of the grave, the Bible’s hell, if they do not learn (Isaiah 26:9, 10 area), they get to die a second time and will be nothing but dust anymore. Gen. 3:19, Romans 6:23.

  7. Yes. There are numerous Jewish sources dealing with reincarnation. In Hebrew, this is called “gilgul ha’ne’shamot,” literally the recycling or transmigration of souls, which can be compared to a flame of one candle lighting another candle. While the essence of the second flame comes from the first one, the second flame is an independent entity. But the new flame contains imperfections inherited from the initial flame, and these imperfections are that which should be corrected over the course of the following lifetimes. See http://www.chabad.org/search/keyword_cdo/scope/6198/kid/6569 for more info on the subject.
    It’s an established fact that Jesus, who celebrated the Essene Passover, was an Essene Jew and taught reincarnation, although his teachings were later edited and modified by “those without understanding” of the concept – Greeks and Romans. Still, numerous references to reincarnation are found in the NT, directly from Jesus.
    The “appointed once to die” verse is nonsense against the validity of reincarnation in the bible. Of course a man “dies once;” reincarnation doesn’t suggest otherwise. The rest of that verse – “Then comes judgment” relates to the surviving soul which is judged (not the dead man), and it is the soul that reincarnates (not the dead man). The judgment refers to contemplation of one’s past life. Jesus knew that as all Jews who accepted the truth of reincarnation have known that. In fact, the idea of “resurrection” is a very screwed up misunderstanding of what Jesus originally taught, which is obvious.
    The fact that reincarnation is part of Jewish tradition comes as a surprise to Christians (as does the fact that Jews don’t believe in the Christian idea of “hell” – nor would have Jesus). Some of the greatest authorities of Judaism accept reincarnation as a basic tenet.
    There is a scriptural allusion to the principle of reincarnation in the following verse from the Book of Job: “Behold, all these things does God do — twice, even three times with a man — to bring his soul back from the pit that he may be enlightened with the light of the living.” In other words, God will allow a person to come back to the world “of the living” from “the pit” (a classic biblical term for Gehinnom – similar to “Purgatory”) a second or third time, or multitude of times.
