Originally posted by Al Davisonthis is really great stuff! Many thanks for continuing to present this information and perspectives. Of course, even you (Smadewell) encourage us to read and study rather than simply accept, without question, your materials.
Yes it is pointless for I have no regard for anyone who chooses to not think for themselves and can at will pick and choose the authors whose works represent their own thinking. In fact I have a downright disregard for said posters
Originally posted by smadewell…It's pointless to respond to someone who claims I have a "lack of knowledge on this subject" and come "unarmed" and yet rejects the source material I've either presented, quoted and/or given references for from the rabbinic literature, which is obviously too "Judaistic" for him/her to stomach and which, in any case, "is worth diddly" in his/her opinion.
Of course you conclude so, for were you capable of thinking for yourself you would not be reliant on others to try and make your point.
It's also pointless to respond to someone who demands that I not present "a myopic pseudo-thesis based on fatuous, irreconcilable, and unsubstantiated remarks by unknown authors"…
and yet states that he doesn't read "the biased thoughts of others"….
Need I say more? Are you or are you not capable of researching and thinking for yourself? This topic does not represent a requirement for genius IQ, after all, we had numerous idiots for many centuries represented in accepted doctrine.
Well, which is it? Do I quote and reference all authors or not? If so, why? He/she isn't going to accept their biased thoughts anyway.
You can expect to be met by a studied train of thought that is not represented by the one-sided references you seek to offer.
Getting back to SomewhereinBetween.... What can one expect from a person who thinks “Jesus was seeking to kill those who disagreed with his teachings, whether they were Jew or Roman, he really was not prejudiced" ... ?
Because he was an armed seditionist. If you can prove me wrong then do so, just stop whining, I detest weakness.
Yes, Yeshua tells others to buy a sword. And why does he do this?
Knew my behind! The inference to said temple for you and all gullible sorts like you, speaks not to stones and mortar, but to himself at best, and secondly, there is no information to show that the scriptures were explicitly written before 70ACE, and thirdly, you take it at face value that some fools named; Matthew; Mark; Luke and John actually wrote that nonsense when in fact were you not reliant on other authors but sought truth, you might very well note that the writings of the church elders when compared to known scripture do in fact suggest a later creation of said scripture.
Because he and the other prophets from the School of Hillel KNOW the Temple is going to be destroyed by the Romans in due course and because they've warned others to flee from the "wrath to come".
Such witless technical terms; pseudo this and religio that, what do they mean exactly? You have yet to respond to Maccabees, instead offering unsubstantiated and broad claims about what was and was not accepted. Show me something that supports your position at least.
Since, these proto-Rabbinic sages have rejected "Jewish pacifism" and enacted halakhot (religio-legal rulings) regarding the use of deadly force and self-defense -- buying a sword is only prudent given what's about to come down the pike. This falls far, FAR short of Yeshua forming a Zealot army or a gang of religio-political assassins like the Sacarii (Dagger Men).
Well now I am crushed, what can I say? You have invoked that losing argument referring to me as a troll, that is after all the ultimate internet argument on which many hang their hats.
In short, SomewhereinBetween isn't debating, let alone dialoguing. He/she appears to be trolling and I don't respond to trolls. So, there will be no more heat from me. You gotta love that IGNORE option.
