Any question you have sent it to me and I will see if I can help you?
Jesus is one of the most famous men in history, but we know very little about him. Some say he didn't exist, kinda like a Robin Hood character, and some (like me) view him as a rabbi, or teacher, spreading the ideas of John the Baptist which were revolutionary at the time, depending how you interpret them. "Turning the other cheek", for example, does that mean if someone slaps you or does you wrong, you offer them your other cheek. If that is so, you'll be an easy target for future abuse. Or is it a metaphore where it was a common practice for a master to slap a slave for a minor infraction, but by offering both cheeks, you are offering to be treated as equal? But nobody would ever hear of him if he wasn't crucified. Kinda like the Titanic would be unheard of if it didn't sink in a freak accident. Matthew, Mark, Luke and John say all this stuff that happened between Jesus and Pilate and what followed, even though they weren't there. All that is known, that can be witnessed by his followers, was Jesus was arrested and was seen nailed to a cross soon after. There's a hug gap in between which will never be known. This is another case where the Bible is pushing faith rather than historical accuracy. We do know that for someone to declare himself King of the Jews has a death wish. Only the Emperor of Rome appoints the King of the Jews. Or was Jesus simply crucified for the causing a disturbence with the money changers. That would get Rome involved because that was taxable income. We don't know exactly why he was crucified. Nothing was written by about him until decades after his death by a biographer, Paul, who never met him.
Great questions, 1. We have great information about Jesus, Who is he? The "son of the live God," rabbi, teacher, prophet all that man say he is. where did he come from? "heaven", why did he come? to save his people from their sins" and I could go on and on. 2. "Turning the other cheek" all Jesus is saying is love your enemy as your self. 3. If he wasn't crucified, we would all be dead. 4.The witnessing was his father, God, who told these men these thing. 2 Timothy 3:16 | All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 5. No GAPS, you just have not been given the eyes to see. 6. Who declare him king? Emperor of Rome 7. why was he killed? To pay the price of sin,
Romans 6:23 | Read whole chapter | See verse in context
For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. Hope I helped.
Alternative answers, at least supported a little better than you have?
1. Jesus - son of Mary. Fatherhood in question, but probably Joseph.
2. "Turn the other cheek" is in reference to responses to being wronged; it has nothing whatsoever to do with loving a neighbor either physically or emotionally.
3. If he wasn't crucified he might have gone on to gain more followers; it most definitely would not have killed all mankind had he escaped the cross.
4. God did not tell men Jesus was crucified; it was witness by men.
5. ?? Not sure what you are replying to, but we all have eyes to see with. Some have greater imagination, but we all have eyes (barring a relatively few that either have no eyes or that have eyes that cannot receive light and transfer information to the brain)
6. The Roman emperor certainly did NOT proclaim Jesus King of the Jews except perhaps in satire.
7. Varying answers. Perhaps for tax evasion, perhaps for "preaching without a permit" so to speak, and perhaps for preaching heresy - Jews did have considerable power in the politics of the day.
Better to give realistic answers to the best of our ability rather than opinions from thin air.
I agree with you Jesus was marry son, but, Joseph was not the father, Bible: Matthew 1:18 Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost.
19 Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a publick example, was minded to put her away privily.
20 But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost.
#2 I am not sure of what you mean, If I am wrong, I except what's happing to me, is this what you are saying. Give scrpture so I can understand
#3 If He wasn't crucified, we would have to pay the price. Bible: Romans 6:23 | Read whole chapter | See verse in context
For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
4# Both he told then before it happone and they witnessed it. Bible: Matthew 16-21 From that time forth began Jesus to shew unto his disciples, how that he must go unto Jerusalem, and suffer many things of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised again the third day.
6#Bible: John 19:21 From that time forth began Jesus to shew unto his disciples, how that he must go unto Jerusalem, and suffer many things of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised again the third day. 19 And Pilate wrote a title, and put it on the cross. And the writing was, JESUS OF NAZARETH THE KING OF THE JEWS.
I get annoyed with grammar like this: "christ question". We are supposed to be writers. We should clean up the writing even when incessantly pushing religious dogma disguised as forum posts.
