Sounds pretty humbling to me.
You make it sound more silly than humbling. I speak about his actions.

Unless you are willing to specify which actions of which you speak - you are really saying nothing.

It would have to be recognized in the Holy writings at the time, yes? If I am correct, it would be in Tanakh. If it does not exist there, then it does not exist. Is my understanding correct?

The bible did not exist and neither did Acts until much later.

I did already. You should take a look. Right in this very thread.




Acts 2:23
Acts was written much later. Jesus was Hebrew.

I specified in this very thread. You simply did not choose to read it.

Please clarify for me... Here are all of your posts in this thread. Based on what actions do you claim that He was not humble?

That was an awesome trace of my posts. I stand corrected.

What he did in the Temple was not humble. Riding into town on two donkeys when one would do was hubris. He recognized too late. His fate was sealed after that. He got caught up in his own press. He should have waited. His traveling companions were fraying at the edges ,and seeking their own power.

Challenging his mother was not humble. He was not humble. Not being humble is not a crime.

He was Hebrew, not Christian. He challenged the Temple hierarchy. He rubbed Rome the wrong way with the whole donkey thing. There were lots of Messiahs at the time. Rome began to see them as a challenge to Roman rule. If the Temple could not control the populace, Rome would. Nothing humble about the man.

Your whole fairy dusted down from heaven, mistreated, and died for you is silly. I prefer my Jesus.

Let me explain. The supposed Prince...or as some call the devil is not an issue...God created positive and negative forces...he generated everything...good AND evil. The way mankind behaves today has fallen even lower than the devil himself. Satan is probably totally embarrassed and wants nothing to do with this new evil generated by man. In other words the devil wants nothing to do with the crap going on...He actually plays by the rules...GOD's rules.
