It would be so cool to borrow the Delorean and go back in time to witness all this take place. It would be so incredible to see Jesus as he walked the earth 2 millennium ago.

Indeed. However, we have something better today: The Spirit of Truth, God's very Spirit.
Jesus said it Himself, "Nevertheless I tell you the truth; it is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you." (John 16:7)
Jesus is still with us, just not in the flesh. He lives on at the right hand of the Father and He lives on the lives of those who believe in Him.

True dat. I talk to people and they complicate this SO MUCH sometimes. The HS is basically him in more omnipresent, portable form XD.(on earth he was limited physically though inside he was fullness of God) Highly efficient for global travel in the Great Commission.

Yes, and some fail to understand that the Holy Spirit is a person, just like the Father and the Son. Some believers try to convince others of the Truth, thus as it turns out: we ourselves make poor Holy Spirits. It is the Holy Spirit that convicts us of the Truth; we as disciples of Christ are to tell others the Truth and allow the Holy Spirit to do the rest while we minister to those who have received the Truth. Speaking the Word will only bring faith to those who're willing to hear it, as in the ones who cooperate with the Spirit of Truth as opposed to those who grieve and resist the Spirit.

Yes, and whenever I do resist the Spirit, and give in to my carnal temptations, I feel like a failure. It reminds me of how much I need to commit myself to prepare my heart so that I can resist temptation in the future.

Some of them, including King Herod. I know they had two major factions: Pharisees and Sadducees.

Both were involved in politics but the Sadducees tended to sell out more and be more worldly, even to the point of not believing in the afterlife. The Pharisees were super religious leaders of the Law or Moses to the point of putting suffocating restrictions on people which enraged Jesus. But some of them, like Nicodemus and Gamaliel were still very wise men.

Some of them listened to Jesus, others... obviously not. At the end of the day, they were all still men like us. We pick, choose and refuse concerning God due to our own experience and ulterior goals. Some of them cowered in fear of Rome and tried to suck up to them because their kingdom was of this feeble world and not the next enduring one.

Sadducees = Democrats
Pharisees = Republicans?

LOL!

It's amazing but we are still dealing with the same old things, just with new titles and Jesus, to their frustration, did not fit neatly into either party.

I'm sure it's not as simple as I'm making it out to be but as it says in Book of Ecclesiastes (OT), "There is nothing new under the sun."

i was also thinking along global politics,

Powerful republic/empire with ambition to "spread its way of life", "supports" medium-sized ally at critical location, in part to "influence" the behavior of some of the latter's bigger neighbors..... ended up with the destruction of both nations (eventually, one took a bit longer than the other)

I'm not the most optimistic person.....

Hmmm I see what you're saying. Unfortunately the good intent gets mixed with the bad even from the earliest colonization of this country. There really are people trying to make people's lives better without anything in return but they're not going to get the popular airtime on TV.

It's good to know God can work despite people's corruption and in the end will cut all the puppet strings and turn all the crazy schemes on their heads. That's the one thing that keeps be from being totally fatalistic about the world.

apparently in political dictionary the word " genocide" only applies beyond the 1930's...

straight lines on a map tend to mean that the natives had no choice in drawing them...

look at a map of the world...

convenience based morality seems to be quite common.

I once watched TBN and a messianic Rabbi was praying in Hebrew and was also praying "not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit" it felt like pure light was pouring into me.

(And on a lesser note, the way they sing while praying gives me goosebumps).

I cannot imagine how amazing and beautiful it would have been to not only see Him standing up front, but preaching as well in the synagogue. What a phenomenal experience it would have been. This picture really put things into perspective...almost kinda gives me spiritual chills. :love:

I like this a lot, it kind of reminds me of when the Priest consecrates the bread and wine at Mass (As he's acting in persona Christi,) some times that image is very vivid to my mind and it's like Jesus is consecrating the bread. This is very cool and very faved

He IS the bread XD

I do find it cool how Orthodox and Anglican churches also recreate such a contemplative and worshipful setting (I miss my college church so much). You can just see the picture of Jesus our High Priest interceding for us.
