Do those of you who believe the bible to be accurate now question your beliefs? And do those of you who think the bible is mostly lies now think there might be something truthful said? See below:
Yes. Some examples..
The episode in the bible where Jesus identified John the Baptist as the reincarnation of Elijah the prophet is one of the clearest statements which Jesus made concerning reincarnation.
“For all the prophets and the law have prophesied until John. And if you are willing to receive it, he is Elijah who was to come.” (Matt. 11:13-14)
Here is the dialogue where Jesus’s disciples question him regarding, what seems to be the concept of karma.
And as he was passing by, he saw a man blind from birth. And his disciples asked him, “Rabbi, who has sinned, this man or his parents, that he should be born blind?”
Jesus answered, “Neither has this man sinned, nor his parents, but the works of God were to be made manifest in him.'” (John 9:1-3)
The concept of karma and reincarnation are abound in the bible. Even in the old testament. The first-century Jewish historian Flavius Josephus wrote about the Pharisees being believers in reincarnation. Josephus wrote about the Pharisees’ belief that the souls of evil men are punished after death. But the souls of good men are “removed into other bodies” and they will have “power to revive and live again.”
The above examples were given to me in an answer from a previous question about reincarnation in the bible…
