He was not actually praying, I think, he was asking his Father, Jehovah to help him and take him from this awful place. The Ancient Hebrews knew that Jehovah was from the Pleiadies System. The Pleiadies, to a normal human being, would be like the human idea of Heaven, to my own mind. There were many teachers sent here, Christ was only one, most people listened, and took what they said to heart. The Taoist and Buddhist are good examples, as are the American Indians. Some, however, took it upon themselves to elevate their teacher into a deity, after they killed him, of course. Then the Roman Church came into being, took great, and immense power unto themselves, authored the New Testament, created a secret language, (Latin) created enemies, (Devil, Satan, Demons) killed off the heretics, and the rest is history. All Modern Christian sects sprang from this original idea of a power base.

If Jesus is the son of God, why did Jesus tell us to pray with a prayer that begins with "OUR father in heaven, hallowed by thy name"? Our means more than one. That would mean that Jesus is saying that all of us are children of God... (Luke 11:2-11:4)


Actually that is exactly what he was saying...

We are all children of God...

Matthew 5:9
Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.


1 John 3
1Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not.

2Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.


Thomas

1 And he said, "Whoever discovers the interpretation of these sayings will not taste death."

2 Jesus said, "Those who seek should not stop seeking until they find. When they find, they will be disturbed. When they are disturbed, they will marvel, and will reign over all. [And after they have reigned they will rest.]"

3 Jesus said, "If your leaders say to you, 'Look, the (Father's) kingdom is in the sky,' then the birds of the sky will precede you. If they say to you, 'It is in the sea,' then the fish will precede you. Rather, the kingdom is within you and it is outside you.

When you know yourselves, then you will be known, and you will understand that you are children of the living Father. But if you do not know yourselves, then you live in poverty, and you are the poverty."

Does that answer your question?
