Perhaps you've heard of a Christian legend about a character who is doomed to live forever.
True, but because so little is known about him, he is known as the Wandering Jew.
According to some historians, the Wandering Jew's real name was Cartaphilus, as well as several aliases given to him by different people in different areas.
After Barrabas was released and Pontius Pilate surrendered Jesus to those who intended to kill him, the stage was set for Jesus' crucifixion.
"Jesus, why are you taking so long?" According to Cartaphilus, a porter on Pilate's staff, Jesus stepped out the door after the Jews had brought him there.
With a grave expression on his face, Jesus said, "I'm gone, and you'll have to wait until I return."
As a result, Cartaphilus is still alive and well today, eagerly anticipating the appearance of Jesus.
Even if he was 30 years old at the time of Christ's suffering, when he reaches the age of a hundred years, he always returns to the same age he was at the time of our Lord's suffering.
After Christ's crucifixion, Ananias, who was also in charge of Paul's baptism, baptized Cartaphilus in the Jordan River.
His given name was Joseph.
He spends a lot of time with bishops and other church prelates in Armenian divisions as well as other eastern nations.
The Bishop of Rome is a man of holy dialogue and religious observance, as indicated by his hesitation to speak when Bishops and religious men face him with historical events. He is also a man of few words and impeccable manners.
He looks to be well-versed in melancholy and God's dread, always anticipating Jesus Christ's second coming with dread, so that when he is judged at the end of time, he would not be angered for what he did when Jesus Christ was condemned.
Despite the fact that his life is simple, with little food and clothing, he stresses his redemption, claiming that he committed sin without recognizing the consequences.
Many people approach him with various queries, which he responds to using his God-given powers.
