and you come up with how they were an accurate reflection of his life and times
I have no better way of making my point without rhetoric.
as I bet they would prefer the right part of religion as opposed to the political and greedy frocked men 's version.
21 The number of those who ate was about five thousand men, besides women and children.
Why collect the leftovers so as not to waste, surely the miracle could be more accurate and not wasteful. If it was anything like the Manna of the OT (satiating) then guessing who would eat 2 or 3 pieces was a non-issue.
Why allow a crowd to gather to begin with if he was compassionate, why not tell his disciples in advance that there would be a great crowd and to go and get supplies before the dinner bell.
One other scripture that hints as to Jesus not being what is generally thought of as preaching non violence is why would it take a cohort to arrest him? (John 18:12)
Jesus was not the founder of Christianity or had any wish to create a cult in his name. ("Father, forgive them for they do not know what they do" Was it to do with his death or the future church built around a blood sacrifice? Luke 23:34)
Some startling revelations always make me dubious of how Jesus was turned into a God by the Roman Emperor Constantine (Nicene Creed)
what if he was alien, he could easily feed people with 1 fish and 1 bread. If he was allien he easy would take 1 of those and replicate to thousands.
Teach a man to fish and you have empty ocean and extinct animals!!!"
It also left extra for Jesus and his disciples
It didn't. It would seem they were right in bringing a cohort. Since Peter cut off an ear of one of them. Adding to that, they were afraid of Jesus.
but to be a guide into spiritual truths by way of fables, and sometimes actual events. Though it has come to be used as a tool for evil.
He said what he did and did what he said. I am sorry, I will listen to Jesus 10 times before I will listen to you. Even if he didn't exist, still a mode to live by. Wouldn't you agree?
Perhaps the price of the pearl is the only thing that stands between us and God.
