I'm sure Jesus got punished. Didn't Mary and Joseph spend some time looking for him when he was around 12 and find him teaching in the Temple? I'm
guessing they scolded him something fierce for going off without saying where he was going...
I doubt he was some tyrant using his divinity to get himself out of punishments (I doubt he was divine at all, but that's another discussion
In order for the story to work Christ has to be fallible, otherwise he never was human to begin with, he was just possessing someones body. If his
mind and consciousness were not human than neither was he...
This is why I could never understand people being offended by the idea of Jesus having kids. He was human right? He went through puberty I assume. So
I'm thinking he had the same urges as everyone else. What would be so wrong about the idea of him falling in love and getting married and quite
possibly having kids?
I think he wasn't perfect and did get punished. I don't think he was divine, I think that's a mistake made by his followers and that many of the
supernatural elements in the story were added by them or exaggerated from actual events that would be less miraculous today (the rumor line, "Did you
hear about Jesus, yeah he's doing miracles, well this is what he did ..." and by the time it gets written down in the Gospels its far more
fantastic). I don't think Jesus came to save us I think he came to teach us how to save ourselves.
