thanks for bringing this up and to our attention.
Everyone has their own idea of abrahamic religions. A lot of ideas are from many local polytheistic religions during that time.
The only problem I see with Jesus, ever, is how misinterpreted a lot of things are.
Such as why Jewish people are Jewish and not Christians. The savior was supposed to come from the house of David, who had Solomon who had a ridiculous
amount of children, but Jesus is the son of god and not from the house of David who Joseph is fom. So you kind of get a who is right scenario (did the
Jewish people get the message wrong? Or is Jesus not who everyone thought he was)
The law is in your heart, not on stone.
Love of humanity. Fundamental teaching of Jesus.
Apocalyptic. Interested in the end of time.
Jesus did not like the laws of his time.
Idea that Jesus was the messiah, he was establishing a church. Ideas imposed upon the gospels. Nothing in gospel of mark of either one of these
things. Only church is mentioned in Matthew. Why would someone who thought they were living in the end of days want to start a church?
Jesus was on a holly mission but wasn't advertising that he was fulfilling prophecy. He was like John the Baptist who declared to be a vehicle of
Body and soul. Jews were very this worldy. He doesn't disclaim or devalue it he was more of a party animal. Having a good time and enjoy the pleasures
of the world. No claim of celebacy.
During the Byzantine they had the idea of the body being meager and weak and the soul being the powerful entity. Comes from the ideas of philosophers
of the time.
Greek ritual of eating the body, blood, and etc of gods.
Secondly Jesus taught much of the same things John the Baptist did, which when studied is actually more enlightening than what we have now in my
opinion. They were of the essence tribes
I think the intention was right, but the actions were mis guided. Just my two cents though
