True Cross of Ctesiphon

Post by averagejoe »

Here is the history of the True Cross of Christ. Also known as the True Cross of Ctesiphon. The recapture of the True Cross of Christ brought down the Sassanian (Persian) Empire by the Christian Byzantine Empire.

The finding of the Cross by the Empress Helen (the mother of St. Constantine the Great) on Golgotha in 326 AD, the place where Christ was crucified.

Underneath the Basil, the Cross of Christ was found, but with it were the other two crosses, those used to crucify the two thieves on either side of Christ. The sign with the inscription, "Jesus of Nazareth, the King of the Jews", also lay among the three crosses. In order to determine which one was the true cross, a sick woman was told to kiss each of the three crosses. The woman kissed the first cross with no result. She kissed the second cross and again nothing happened. However, when the ailing woman kissed the True Cross, she was immediately made well. It so happened that a funeral procession was passing that way, and so the body of the dead man was placed on each of the crosses, and when it was placed on the True Cross, the dead man came to life — thus the name the “Life-Giving” Cross, which gives life not only to that man, but to each person who believes in the sacrifice of Christ on the Cross and His all-glorious three day Resurrection.

The recovery of the Cross on which Jesus Christ was crucified from the Persians. The Persians had captured the True Cross as a prize of war when they sacked Jerusalem in 614 AD. It was recovered by the forces of the Byzantine Empire (Eastern Roman Empire)) in 627 AD, when Emperor Heraclius decisively defeated the Sassanid Persians at The Battle of Nineveh, surrounding their capital Ctesiphon, recovering the True Cross, and breaking the power of the Sassanid dynasty. The Elevation took place on March 21, 630 AD, when Emperor Heraclius entered Jerusalem amidst great rejoicing, and together with Patriarch Zacharios (609-632), transferred the Cross of Christ with great solemnity into the temple of the Resurrection, joyously held up for veneration by the Christian faithful.

Jesus grave has been discovered in Kashmir, India:

Trying to get spiritual nourishment from a two thousand year old book is like trying to suck milk from the breast of a woman who has been dead that long.

Thanks for the grainy video cliffy1. But Christ rose from the grave in Jerusalem. So there is no body to be buried. But there is a good chance that Jesus did visit what is known as India today. There is also lots of information of Jesus in England in Glastonbury during his 18 missing years.
But India as we know it today, is not the same as it was back in Christ's day. It was known as the Parthian Empire made up of today's Europeans back in those day's. Provided are maps.

Notice the words Saka's (Saxon's) and Indo-Scythians on the maps. These were European tribes located in the east end of the Parthian Empire. The fall of the Parthian Empire in 226 AD cause the greatest migration in world history. Driving the European Empire of Parthia over the Caucasus Mountains and into Europe.
