Weird random, [true] thing that happened to me.

I had never heard of the Christian belief in reincarnation, or any of the surrounding conspiracies.

But when I first started learning Greek, I had a dream in which the following happened:

1) A tall man jumped in front of me and yelled at the top of his lungs, "REINCARNATION!"

2) The sky flashed with the text, "ΜΑTΘΑΙΟΝ 1111111111."

========

I woke up and started looking into this verse, and behold!

There is apparently a conspiracy that states that Jesus endorsed reincarnation based off of Matthew 11:11's comment about John the Baptist coming in the spirit of Elijah.

How bizarre is that?!

It's an interesting alternative to the First Mover idea, but nothing more.

"Conspiracy" doesn't mean what you think it means, but that's not that bizarre. Reincarnation was a popular belief among ancient Jews, and appears in the Talmud. Even in 1800s Russia, there were Rabbinic discussions on people being reincarnated as horses as punishment for past sins, and even prophets/holy men being taken from their place in the afterlife and reborn as a different person on Earth to fulfill another mission.

Elijah was assumed into Heaven alive and is meant to return before the coming of the Messiah, which is why Luke associates Elijah with John the Baptist (an association which John himself denies). The connection is flimsy either way, since it was generally believed that Elijah, never having died, would simply return as himself rather than be reincarnated as another personality. The second coming of Elijah, of course, is the basis for similar claims regarding Jesus.

Always be careful of the risks of taking one (loosely interpreted) verse of the Bible and holding it up as a standard against the whole, wider body of clearly revealed truth. The Bible speaks extensively and explicitly of death, judgment and resurrection but never of reincarnation.
I have set the Lord always before me: because He is at my right hand, I shall not be moved. (Psalm 16:8)

A fly was harassing me yesterday. Then I thought about what it would be like to be reincarnated as a fly.
