So then you wish me to stop discussing the man and pick up the supernatural .
I think it's time to show you who jesus really is.
he is hope,faith and lack of courage.
The courage it takes to live this life as only your self.
No marvel comics group of hero and heroines to magically aid you.
it takes courage to live life as a person .
And he managed to find 12 friends called
John, Peter, Paul, Phillip, Mark, Thomas, Luke, Mathew, Andrew and Simon
..... who all drank wine
That's what I call a miracle
I have heard from some he may have even been a spy against the Roman Army
and did not get sympathy from the real rulers of the day
Why thank you Motar.
I feel his life should be told as close as possible to the reality it was.
so hmmmm Jesus Christ is not his name given to him at birth.
What would you think his real name , the one his mom and dad would call him was?
Joshua was his name?
Or David or Krishna or Horus or a hundred other names, keeps popping up no matter how many times he's crewsified,
That seems to be the problem with mythical beings: they keep popping up in different cultures under different names. I wonder if it had anything to do with the language thing?
Well Clifford history sure ain't about meat it's about reason, Christ is the real deal the universal truism, of course it has nothing much to do with Christians, these days anyway.
All you have to go by in trying to figure out the answer to that question are books to be read and tales to be told. All of which is hearsay which, in a court of law is considered to be inadmissible. Unless you have a time machine, and can travel back to those times and see for yourself, you cannot know. And neither can I.
Oh, I'm aware what Christ is. So called Christians follow the writings of Paul and so do not have a clue what Christ stands for.
Matthew 27:46 About three in the afternoon Jesus cried out in a loud voice, "Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?" (which means "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?").
Good question. After over fifty years of thinking about that question, my answer would be, "I do not know."
His name in Hebrew would have been: Jeshua bar Joseph. Jesus the son of Joseph.
He was, according to all Christian belief's a human male in every sense of that word. He got hungry; he got tired, he got angry; he got sad; he felt joy; he loved others; he appreciated the love of his mother and father; he worked as a carpenter so he undoubtedly had callouses on his hands; and he was likely attracted to the opposite sex.
BUT, he was also God. He was both true man and true God.
You can believe or not. Personally, I believe.
Excellent topic, CL. Thank you for posting it.
In his human context, Jesus Christ is Jewish. In Jewish culture, proper names have meaning. Etymologically speaking, the proper name "Jesus" and the title "Christ" have the following meanings:
late 12c. (Old English used hælend "savior"), from Greek Iesous, which is an attempt to render into Greek the Aramaic proper name Jeshua (Hebrew Yeshua) "Jah is salvation," a common Jewish personal name, the later form of Hebrew Yehoshua (see Joshua ).
Online Etymology Dictionary
title given to Jesus of Nazareth, Old English crist (by 830, perhaps 675), from Latin Christus, from Greek khristos "the anointed" (translation of Hebrew mashiah; see messiah ), noun use of verbal adjective of khriein "to rub, anoint" (see chrism ). The Latin term drove out Old English Hæland "healer, savior," as the preferred descriptive term for Jesus. Online Etymology Dictionary
Named by his parent(s) and entitled by his followers, the etymological meaning of the proper name and title "Jesus Christ" is anointed savior/healer.
