    Jesus then tells His Disciples that two swords would be enough.

    The context pertains to fulfilling Isaiah 53. Jesus was not telling His Disciples to buy swords to fight their enemies.
    For enemies of the Gospel we use the Sword of the Spirit. For theives and robbers we use guns.

      I believe we need instruction. witness and nuture to help us stay on our path.
      I agree wholeheartedly!

        Why then did Christ say " it is written" 63 times in the gospels while pointing to Old Testament prophecies in order to establish His Authority of being who was written about in them?

          We'd have a hard time, as He'd only speak to the House of Israel and the rest of us would hear from disciples atf ...

          We still wouldn't find His body...
          My New Years Resolution: 1 Peter 3:15
          Omniscient without man's qualification. John 1:3 "Nothing"
          Colossians 1:17 "Nothing" John 15:5 "Nothing"
          Mighty, ALL mighty (omnipotent). Revelation 1:8
          No possible limitation Isaiah 40:25 Joshua 24:15
          Infinite (Omnipresent) Psalm 145:3 Hebrews 4:13

          ? Yep

          Now to Him who is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think... Amen. -Ephesians 3:20 & 21

          ... when I became an adult, I set aside childish ways. Titus 3:10 Ephesians 4:29-32; 5:11

          Separation of church and State is not atheism "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights..."

            Many of them would crucify him all over again. He would also rebuke many of them just as he did the Pharisees, etc in his day.

              No, not really. The Jesus of the gospels wasn't the issue then, and still isn't.

                He will come insha'allah.
                to fill earth with justice after it was repleted with evilness.
                in houses which Allah has ordered to be raised and that His name be mentioned therein; exalting Him within them in the morning and the evenings

                        Honestly, Angel, what the heck kind of question is this? No, I don't believe in Jesus. You're smart enough for me not to have spell this out for you. Don't sidetrack the thread.

                          There would be no church.

                          Am I taking things too literally?

                          They'd call him a hypocrite for judging after telling us not to, because they wouldn't have been paying attention to what He actually said. Then they'd judge him for not forgiving the unrepentant. And also for hanging out with sinners who have repented.

                            That's easy. They would string him up and crucify him, just as the mainstream church did before.

                              You said Jesus wasnt the problem and admit you believe in the supernatural, both strange and amazing things to me. So yes, sometimes you might need to spell that out for me.

                                The question was about Jesus. Not all atheists say Jesus didn't exist.
