Cory the Coroner meets Jesus

Cory, who was a county Coroner, was finishing up his examinations for the day. Being surrounded by death and corpses, he always brought a Bible to his office for guidance and comfort.

On this day, after reading some Bible passages, Cory placed the sacred writings on one of his tables and went over to his microscope to get another look at a tissue sample.

Suddenly Cory became aware of a glowing light behind him. As he turned around he noticed that the glowing light was coming from his Bible on the examination table.

To his astonishment the Bible began to morph into a human body. It seemed as though all the organs, tissues and cells were emerging out of the sacred narratives themselves, as though the passages were miraculously arranged into an interconnected and interrelated bio-system. When all the body’s features came into focus Cory realized that it was the Lord Jesus.

Cory back-peddled.

Jesus looked at Cory with a warm and loving smile and invited him to come closer.

“What is happening to me?” spurted Cory.

“I am appearing before you to reveal new mysteries about faith,” responded the Lord. “The post-modern world is challenging the authority and inerrancy of Holy Scripture. Only new revelations about the Bible’s true complex structure will get the world’s attention.”

“What new revelations?” asked the still shocked medical examiner.

The Lord answered in a most kind tone, “You are trained as a scientist. Therefore, I will reveal to you some of the science contained within the Bible’s pages. First of all, the Word of God is the form in which the Divine Truth comes forth and assumes. What most people do not grasp is that the Bible’s stories creatively mirror coherent organic processes—my processes. That is why when I entered the world scene of spacetime history my life’s actions made the Word ‘Flesh.’ ”

Seeing that Cory’s head was about to explode, Jesus added, “If you believe in a Creator God then you must also believe that God has Infinite capacities. Only a Being with infinite capacities could produce stories which contained a harmonic symmetry and consistency between entirely different levels of meaning. Otherwise, the biblical stories would be no more than mere tall tales and silliness.”

“Why are you telling me these things?” questioned Cory.

Jesus said, “I am actually communicating these new ideas to anyone on earth who is ready to listen.”

The Lord then spent several hours with Cory explaining that He was actually Jehovah God in Person and how the Word, including the Prophets and Historical events, contained evidence of this great truth. All the biblical narratives inwardly described how He suffered great challenges coming from two realms and obtained ultimate Glorification, which unified his Human nature with His Divine Nature. Jesus also explained how the world of spacetime, matter and physical measurement had its origins in the non-physical qualities of the Spiritual World. Holy Scripture contained both physical and non-physical structure so that it could communicate with both humans on earth and angels of heaven. Jesus further revealed that Heaven’s various communities and their harmonious designs were arranged in a fashion similar to the anatomical structures and organs of the human body because all processes and utility follow His Divinely Human living arrangement and order, that is, the perfection of unity and harmony through diversity. Jesus ultimately showed Cory that the Holy Word was a grand template for all the laws and forces of the universe—laws and forces that had their origins in divine truth and love.

“Wow,” exclaimed Cory with some horror. ”Humans and their newest worldviews are not moving in this direction!”
