The book of life

The book of life

Tim burton’s the nightmare…

Regarding the interpretation of Exodus 32 32 (when Moses asks Yahweh to remove him from the book) there are those who consider that in the book of life are inscribed those who are alive as opposed to those who die or are dead, since it is undeniable the intention of Moses to ask for death for himself in that account. This also seems to be the interpretation of the text of Psalm 69 28 where the psalmist asks that his enemies be erased from the book of life.
The Jews were very given to making genealogies where the membership or rank of the members of the people of Israel was documented. This served as proof and sometimes conditioned citizenship (cf. Nh 7 61.64). Hence the belief that there would be a Book of Life as a heavenly record containing the list of those who belonged to God.
In the sense of a register of those who are saved and have overcome evil, it is found in the New Testament, specifically in the letter to the Philippians (cf. Phil 4 3) but above all in the book of Revelation: 3 5; 13 8; 17 8; 20 12-15; 21, 27. It is said that it is the Lamb who possesses the book, hence in numerous iconography Christ is represented as carrying the book of life. It is an image widely used not only with the expression but also as the names that are written in heaven (cf. Lk 10 20).

Meanwhile in the land of the living, Carlos is on the outskirts of the city with Chakal’s army. Joaquin was about to marry Maria (both notably saddened by Manolo’s death), until someone shouts interrupting the wedding, announcing that the bandit Chakal has arrived. Back in the land of the Forgotten, the bulls from the bullfight unite to form a giant bull that tries to destroy Manolo. After the beast crashes giving Manolo the opportunity to kill it, Manolo refuses and decides to play his guitar, singing a song in which he apologizes to the bull for the unjust death of his fellow man at the hands of the Sanchez family bullfighters. The bull surrenders and disappears into hundreds of yellow petals (resting in peace). Recognizing Manolo’s triumph, Xibalba joins the Catrina and the Wax Man so that the three of them can revive Manolo.

Elysium

This book, “the Lamb’s book of life”, is not a physical book, but a spiritual one, and belongs to Jesus Christ (Revelation 21:27). In it are found the names of those who are considered righteous before God and who, if they remain faithful to the end, will receive eternal life (Revelation 3:5). When someone is blotted out of the book, it means that he is destined to die forever (Revelation 3:5; 20:15).
The Book of Life is first mentioned in Exodus 32:31-32, when Moses offers to God to be blotted out of his record, saying, “I beseech thee, for this people have committed a great sin, because they have made them gods of gold, that thou wouldest now forgive their sin, and if not, blot me now out of thy book which thou hast written.”
But God “said unto Moses, Whosoever sinneth against me, him will I blot out of my book” (Exodus 32:33). However noble the patriarch’s intentions may have been in trying to protect Israel, God does not bargain with salvation in this way.
Moses, for example, knew that his name was in this book and, since Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and the prophets will be in the kingdom of God, their names must also be in the record (Exodus 32:31-32; Luke 13:28). Christ further said to his disciples, “rejoice that your names are written in heaven,” and, in one of his letters, the apostle Paul named several “whose names are in the book of life” (Luke 10:20; Philippians 4:3).
