When Jesus walked the earth before being murdered by the prominent Jewish wicked religious leaders in his day, Jesus BLASTED those hypocritical religious leaders for their misleading of the people with their useless traditions and hypocritical pompous appearances. Read Matthew chapter 23.....(See Malachi 3:6)...Jesus' heavenly Father, Jehovah God, feels the same way. Nothing has changed today. False religion is worse. The vast majority of false religion is soon to be slated for destruction by God's heavenly based Kingdom/Government in the hands of God's appointed King and Son, Jesus Christ.

I believe disgusted" is an appropriate word for their feelings TRR. Reason being is because there are so many verses in the Bible (OLD and NEW TESTAMENT) that show how Jesus and God feel about religion that doesn't represent them properly.
This link will answer all your questions and response to knowing if "anyone knows what the original language of the old testament was written in?
snapcracklepop thanks for that source, it is only one source. If you try and study the issue you will find scholars are divided. The old testament was written in ancient Hebrew. The new Testament? Koine Greek, Aramaic or another Semitic language.
Eric here are some verses from the Bible: Matthew 7:21-23, Jeremiah 14:14, Mark 7:13, These verses are referring to those religious leaders in Jesus day and nothing has changed today, it is much worse when it comes to religion in our day.
I am sorry but these were Jews. Not a religion but a race/tribe. They had a group hierarchy and a bureaucracy but I don't see or hear God calling them a religion. You just assume in my opinion because that is your reference point.
It doesn't have to say the word "religion", anyone can read between the lines and see what these verses are talking about. If you cant see the connection where these verses are talking about religion you never will.
Would we say revisionism for justification? Point blank there was no "religion" during Christ's time on earth as we understand it today. Nothing close. If we insert our desires for justification into the Word of God, we got real issues.
Time for me to follow the advice at Proverbs 26:4. You have your opinion and you're entitled to that. I don't cherish the idea of engaging n debates especially when the conversation is going nowhere. I just state scriptural facts take it or leave it
Very interesting and my apologies. I was not paying attention that you and I follow different Bibles. Thank you for informing me of more about yours.
Readmikenow, you feel fortunate many others do not. Speaking socalled advance English doesn't help the reader understand what he's talking about. His point will be lost. The Jews used the Romans to murder Jesus. So the Jews really murdered Jesus.
snapcracklepop I disagree. If the Jews had the power to use the Romans, they would have had used their leaders to get them leave Israel. A study of history will show the Romans ignored the conquered Jews and only paid attention when they benefited.
Please use words that people can understand. You have taken away the meaning or understanding of what you're trying to say.
This is a first here on hubpages for me. On a writing site for writers, someone is asked to dummy down their use of words?
I feel fortunate. I understand exactly what Setank Setunk is saying. His knowledge of the English language is very advanced. The Romans killed Jesus and not the Jews. Jesus was born to die in the way he died. That is clear. He was not murdered.
That is heavy -- worthy of pondering. I reckon in a sense I was born so I could die. And if you go further you have to understand that Jesus's death was not a homicide, but death by His Father.
