    Could there be more than one 'Jesus'?

    If we accept an expanding universe with billions of galaxies and the logical likelihood of other planets with intelligent life forms, would discovering that those life forms had a savior like our own Jesus alter your Christian belief? (John3:16)

    if  any one being comes to a universal belief that service orientation begins with ones own service...then why isnt it logical to believe that that being, (or beings) would project themselves into ALL the universes???
    if one can help just one soul become stronger, more fulfilled, why wouldnt one want MORE than one soul to develop along those same lines?
    in other words, why in the world would a being as loving and self-less limit themselves to just one earth?

    Could there be more than one Jesus? Short answer, NO!

    He made the earth and all that is in it, he hung every star in the sky, every sun, every galaxy, every planet. In light of this fact, He is Lord of all.

    There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all. Eph. 4:4-6

      I agree with this statement. There is only one God, one Jesus. A baby duck is still a duck. Jesus is the son of God, making him God. Jesus was born of flesh and blood and died with our sins. Who else would do this for us? Who else loves us that much?

      So you deny there could be sentient life elsewhere in the universe?

    There is only one Jesus. That being said, there have been others just like him already on this earth.  Buddha, Krishna, Mohammed, like Jesus, are all reflections of the collective human spirit. They were all trying to tell us the same basic knowledge about ourselves and about God dwelling within us and in everything around us. It is likely that life on other planets would have the same spiritual reflections. There are likely planets whose inhabitants are so evolved that most, if not all, of the individuals are as spiritual as these iconic religious figures we recognize. As we grow and evolve, we become more aware of our true connection with God. Eventually, there will be a time when we won't see ourselves as separate or isolated. This is knowledge that all of these figures clearly understood.

    Anything is possible, but not likely. This is an interesting question, but to me, it is inconsequential. I does not alter anything that I believe. I have real issues to contemplate and I have people dealing with cancers, with death and dying and with problems that have stolen their joys. I am sorry, but if there are other Jesus figures out there, so well and good. Take care.

    Oddly enough, there is no conflict between Jesus being unique and the possibility of life on other planets. It may be that the ultimate mission for humanity is to spread the good news of redemption throughout the universe. Perhaps salvation is not just for human beings.

      Exactly. What if God sent Himself to other planets as well, for the same purpose. he's God, he can do anything. And to think we are the center of the universe? How egotistical! That the Bible supports that we are? Absurd.

    Jesus said, "Many will come using my name and deceive many." There is only one Jesus. He is the first and the last, the Alpha and Omega. The Bible is clear where He began, what He has done, and where He is right now. It also is clear about what He will do as eternity unfolds before us. The Bible gives us no reason to think that there are any other lifeforms in the universe. With Jesus having experimental planets beginning with their own Adam and Eve and their own Jesus having to go through the cross over and over. It make zero sense to even think like that given what we know in Scripture and Earth being God's footstool. We are the center of the Cosmic story but I do believe that in eternity we will have bodies like the risen body of Jesus. "we will be as He is" With these bodies I believe we will be able to explore other worlds in our eternity with Jesus. We know we will be in heaven, we know we will be in Jerusalem. There is no reason to think we will not be able to see other worlds that God has created in the universe.

      I expect you believe that The Earth is the centre of the universe as well. Why do you think God let all the trillions of planets  be formed, if they were all going to be empty?

      Who said they were necessarily going to remain empty? If we can go there why would we not visit regularly or even choose to to stay a millenium or two?

    No, because I would make the leap that it is the same Jesus. If the universe was created by one God for Jesus, then he is perfectly capable and able to manage it and do with it as he wishes...all billion and billions of galaxies.

      I think that is what I was pointing to; His name might be something other than 'Jesus', but He would obviously be the same person/God. Why would God make the universe so big that we could not share the Good News with everyone?

    Historically the middle east was up to its ears in 'messiahs' at the time as well as the chances on other planets, universes or even parallel universes.  However, you can't alter a true believer's beliefs with a two by four.

      I do not expect to alter a believer's belief; I too, am a believer, but one who enjoys pressing the envelope of my understandings.

    Yea.. But all are same. there are different religions in all over the world and different gods, but i believe every god is same.

    There is only one Jesus but he has many names or some may refer to His many names as titles... Son of Man, Son of God, King of kings, Lamb of God, Word of God... just to name a few. All of these names refer to the same person.

    No, not in the least.   There are many false Jesus' out there....many people claim that they are the Messiah, but they are not.   Jesus says that many will claim to be Him.    If there are intelligent life forms on other planets, then those life forms are not made in the image of God like we humans are.   God has ONE Savior for everything and everyone He created, and that is Jesus Christ of Nazareth.  He is all we need.

      Ok, so Jesus said he would return, if he came back, how would you know it was him and not a false Jesus?

    This is a very open minded question and I respect you for that, I personally believe that there are many beings out there higher than ourselves. The thing is, how much do we really know about God and creation and what is out there? Maybe there are answers to these questions and perhaps some real information, that would be great wouldn't it?
