Who is Aristophanes?


This morning I woke up with this thought on my heart (from the Holy Spirit):

 "Who was Aristophanes?



Less is known about Aristophanes than about his plays. In fact, his plays are the main source of information about him. It was conventional in Old Comedy for the Chorus to speak on behalf of the author during an address called the 'parabasis' and thus some biographical facts can be got 'straight from the horse's mouth', so to speak."   http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aristophanes

Parabasis[edit]

The parabasis is an address to the audience by the Chorus and/or the leader of the Chorus while the actors are leaving or have left the stage. The Chorus in this role speaks sometimes out of character, as the author's mouthpiece, and sometimes in character, but very often it isn't easy to distinguish its two roles. Generally the parabasis occurs somewhere in the middle of a play and often there is a second parabasis towards the end. 

Chorus  (in ancient Greek tragedy) a group of performers who comment 

on the main action, typically speaking and moving together.



FOR THOSE WHO HAVE EARS TO HEAR.  TIME HAS RUN OUT; VERY SOON 

TRUE CHRISTIAN BELIEVERS IN JESUS CHRIST WHO ARE SAVED WILL BE 

LEAVING THIS WORLD IN THE RAPTURE.  THEY WILL DISAPPEAR IN THIN

AIR, INTO THE HEAVENS TO BE WITH CHRIST.

IF YOU ARE LEFT BEHIND MANY PEOPLE WILL ACT AS A CHORUS TO 

COMMENT ON WHAT HAPPENED TO THE CHRISTIANS WHO LEFT.

TAKE HEED TO WHAT THEY SAY. IF IT ISN'T THE TRUTH THAT JESUS 

TOOK THEM TO HEAVEN, THEN DON'T BUY THEIR LIES.

IF YOU ARE NOT SAVED, PLEASE ASK

JESUS TO SAVE YOU, BY REPENTING AND ASKING

JESUS TO BE YOUR SAVIOR.
