Why do they have the humans in a cage?

At least this year there is the same back-to-back Sabbaths as on the year He was crucified. Wonder if that will have more people standing at midnight? lol

My point is that Jesus was a Jew and if he came down again the Christians would turn their backs on him again


and how could the Christians turn their back on him "again"? When did they turn their back on him the first time?

No he wasn't. He was an Israelite.

No Jesus was a Jew.. of the House of David, born of a Jewish mother, presented in the Temple in Jerusalem.. all defintions of Jewish identity. I'm not sure the term Israelite meant much back then.. as most affiliations were to tribes.. and kin.. or perhaps city states.. rather than nations.. a term which only took on a separate meaning with the emergence of the modern nation state.

Jesus would probably have a conniption fit if he saw what has been done with his teachings. I never understood why we celebrate his torture and death with pigging out on chocolate and ham. How did an egg laying bunny ever get mixed up in these Holy days? And how did a pork get into the picture? The guy was a Jew and they are forbidden to eat pork.

David schmavid Israelites were the off spring of Jacob.

All Jews are Israelites but not all Israelites are Jews.


The **** ups of the Judeans are the reason God sent Jesus in the first place.

Anybody born in Judea would have been a Jew, not everybody living in Judea would have been a Jew. As such once Judea ceased to be then no more Jews were even born.
