Scout: From the \'93Judgment of Paris\'94 to the War of the Achaeans and the Trojans How Paris abducted the royal wif e of King Menelaus of Sparta according to the plan of Agamemnon, king of Mycenae, igniting the war between the Achaeans and the Ilians. Cypria, the name of the ship, was also the name of an island the Ilians controlled before it was seized by Achaean forces in the war. \par }{\i *Aethiopis}{ A lost epic, until recovered by Brave Scout: About the Achaean champion warrior Akillos, (or Achilles), and his slayings of Penthesilea the Amazon and the Ethiopian champion, Memnon, followed by his own death; the epic appears in Chronicle of the Undeleted, A.S. 2024, Part II, A Question of Any. This epic is restored in part with Brave Scout\rquote s accounts of the epic struggles of Elijah against Jezebel.

Evidently, they were numerous enough to \par be used to guard the towers and walls of a queen city, Tyre, so it is hard to see that they were \par mutations, which would be rare and hard to find. Anything so numerous had to be a species. The giants, too, were numerous enough to be called \'93families,\'94 which really mean they were a species, for giantism occurred not in rare indivi duals but ran in entire families. The family in Gath that claimed Goliath was one such. In the close confines of narrow towers, the military value of this strange species can be appreciated. Rather than using fewer men of normal height and size, ma n y more Gammadims with bows and also pots of boiling oil or heaving big rocks could be accommodated, thus unleashing greater havoc on the enemy soldiery below the walls. Where did they originate? Quite possibly, they were natives of the Middle East. In Africa, a species of dwarves lives to this modern day, which were called \'93Deng\'94 in ancient times but are now called \'93pygmies.\'94 It is evident, also, that the Gammadims died out, unless they were imported pygmies from Africa, which is not unlikely, since the Tyrians operated far-flung trade lines that encompassed Africa, the Middle East, Europe and even the British Isles. \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par Volume IV \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par Volume IV \par Appendix \par \par \par Timeline--The Question of the Crucifixion of Christ \par on the Twin Earths \par \par As the chief defining Event (after the Fall of Man in Garden of Eden), the Crucifixion \par must never be treated lightly, even in fiction. It remains forever, exclusively non-fiction and supremely sacred text. Although the author and chronicler begs revelation from God on this Greatest Event \par in heaven and earth, the Holy Scriptures describe it adequately. Reverence is only needed \par to treat it properly. For that the author and chronicler prays: reverence and awe that \par will illumine the mind on what the Scriptures describe in Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, \par and elsewhere in both Old and New Testaments. The author confesses that he took too light a view of crucifixion in first treating of the Event in this series, but he has since \par asked God for forgiveness, God who--in order to save humanity in the only way possible--paid \par such a great Price as giving up the life of His own Son on the Cross. Christ said that every \par sin committed against Him would be forgiven, and the author is assured that his superficial \par attitude is forgiven and cleansed by the Blood of Christ. \par First, there can be no double death of Christ through crucifixion. Christ cannot have died on two separate worlds and at two times, since Scripture plainly states that Christ died once for all. We can \par crucify Him again by sinning against him or denying belief in Him--but not in the sense \par that Christ is put back upon the Cross, for that was God\rquote s Supreme Act of Dealing With \par Humanity\rquote s Sin through a Substitute taking Humanity\'94s Death Sentence! The Crucifix is an emblem that is a continual reminder of the Lord\rquote s agony on the Cross, but everyone should understand that crucifixion is not taking place forever but has been completed. \par The crucifixion was completed, and it is done and over with. But what was completed in that event? On the Cross humanity was pardoned by Christ\rquote s substitution. He, who was innocent of all sin, was \par \'93made sin\'94 for our sake. God the Father looked upon Christ\rquote s substitution, his taking \par sin\rquote s guilt on Himself, as fully and forever sufficient to pay for justice\rquote s demand for punishment. \par Jesus was the Lamb provided by God to be slain for the setting free and pardon of sinful \par and condemned humanity. No other man was available or sinless to stand in humanity\rquote s stead but this man, who was God\rquote s only begotten Son. No other man was sinless and perfect, as Jesus \par was from beginning to end of his tenure on earth. He was condemned by Roman and Jewish \par authorities for claiming he was the Son of God, but he was never convicted of any wrongdoing \par or crime and sedition against the Roman rule. Sedition was the lesser false charge, which was \par entirely unsupported, since he came and went freely, speaking everywhere, and at no time did the Roman authorities arrest him for opposing their rule, since He always said that His kingd om was not of this world. His crime, which was falsely laid as the condeming charge against him, was supposedly blasphemy. But it was no blasphemy, for He truly was the Son of God! He told the truth, and they condemned Him for the truth. Even this, on the Cross, the Lord forgave them!--\'94Father,\'94 he prayed in his last dying \par moments, \'93forgive them, for they know not what they do.\'94 \par Since, then, there can be no double death of Christ, this series cannot present such a thing. \par Christ is portrayed as being born twice, it is true, for this wonderful Incarnation of the Divine into Human Flesh is still wonderful when doubled, but when it comes to Christ\rquote s death this series cannot present him as being slain twice. Christ suffered too much for tha t, and scripture clearly forbids a repeat of His death on the Cross. The crucifixion, in its entirety, is a historical fact--amply attested by the generation of Jews and Romans and many other peoples contemporary with Yeshua the Christ. His Resurrect ion also is amply supplied with historical evidence, despite the continual carping and hedging of some scholars to whom nothing so momentous could ever be acceptable (though even some of these, who have been \par most notable scholars and authorities, have b een converted to a belief in Christ or at least acknowledgement of the fact of the Resurrection, through honest research and judicious handling of the manuscripts). In this series a second crucifixion occurs, but there is no second death of Christ. W hatever can be learned by repeating the crucifixion stops short of violating His once-for-all-time death on the Cross. Science fiction must bow the knee somewhere before the Truth, and I have chosen to bow my writer\rquote s knee here, regardless of the difficul ties and inconsistencies in the plot this creates. By this point the reader should have gotten the point of the Crucifixion anyway, and to proceed to a second death would be not only blasphemous, in my opinion, but totally unnecessary. Christ\rquote s Incarnation and Nativity in Bethlehem is quintessentially reenacted (not just \'93repeated\'94 ) every time a human soul--the spiritual equivalent of the Bethlehem stable--welcomes in the Christ Spirit. The transfiguring spiritual birth that occurs then in an indiv idual heart is the same that occured twenty centuries ago in the natural setting of a Bethlehem stable-cave, and it is repeated in countless human hearts. For that reason I make no apology for staging a second Nativity on Earth II. \par \par Volume IV \par Appendix \par \par }{\b\fs52 \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par }{ \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par }{\fs40 Book Three \par \par }{\b\fs40 \par \par U N C H R O N I C L E OF T H E S E C R E T \par S H A R E R S, P A R T III \par \par A N N O S T E L L A E }{\b\i\fs40 3 0 - \par }{\b\fs40 \par }{\b\i\fs40 \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \'93Joseph\rquote s Letter\'94 \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par }{ \par \par \par \par Lost Chronicle \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par }{\b\fs40 \par \par \par }{\b\fs56 \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par }{ \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par \par Not used \par \par \'93Dear Van,\'94 she had written, \'93don\rquote t ever give up on your dreams.
