Reincarnation In Western Religion

Reincarnation does not only show up in eastern religions like Buddhism and Hinduism, it also is apparent in ancient religion. The ancient Greeks believed in a process like this with Plato writing of the soul entering a new body after the body it was previously in had perished. In the Bible, Jesus Christ asks a person who they think he is and the person responds “some say you’re John the Baptist, others say Elijah, and some say you’re Jeremiah” which is a subtle and indirect nod towards reincarnation. This statement hints at the fact that Christ came back as one of those people which is why he acted the way he did. Furthering this theory, Christ has stated “when two or more are gathered in my name, I am there”
