The fact still remains that Jesus said that the ONLY sign the Pharisees would see was the sign of Jonah. If he had already performed miracles in front
of the Pharisees then why would he say they would see none? They already had!
He didn't say that they hadn't seen any, he said that they're asking to see a sign, and they're going to get one, but it's not what they want. Go back
and read the full passage that I posted above, and you'll see that.
No, Jesus may not have had any connection to the Romans while alive except for his crucifixion but the Romans are the ones who took his story
and ran with it. Peter was born in a Roman province, he was captured and imprisoned around the time of Jesus' death by the Romans and was even
"supposedly" crucified upside-down. Jesus even called Peter Satan at one point.
Actually, there are other instances of Jesus interacting with Romans, even favourably, I was saying he had no interaction with Rome
you're confusing your people there -- it was Paul who was the Roman citizen, not Peter, and Jesus called Peter "Satan" because Peter wanted Jesus to
be the expected political messiah, who would overthrow the Roman rule in Israel and re-establish the Kingdom of Israel.
The pope even just acknowledged that Jesus wasn't even born in December.
No, the Pope recently said that Jesus may have been born in a year prior to when he is generally accepted to have been born (by a few years.) No
church has ever claimed that Jesus was born in December, Christmas is a festival that celebrates Christ's birth, it isn't a birthday party. The date
in December was chosen because it coincided with the Roman festival of Saturnalia, because if you want people to stop doing something (celebrating
Saturnalia,) you'll be more successful if you give them something else to do instead.
No, there is a preponderance of evidence that Jews from Palestine wrote the New Testament, and zero evidence that the Romans did, and even if that was
true, why would they leave in this "clue" that you think you've found?
