If jesus would have been born in today's time ,in information age...what do you think would have happened?
He would probably have moved to California and joined a hippie commune, to be forgotten by the rest of the world for years to come. Pretty much what happened then, too, except he probably would not have been killed by the government for preaching heresy.
Either that or aborted as an unwanted fetus, although that's another story...
Jesus wouldn't have been born in this day and age because He fulfilled prophecies that could only have been fulfilled around the time He was born, and in the place he was born. Cynics notwithstanding, Jesus life and death didn't happen in a vacuum, His birth time and place and the way He died were foretold in the OT.
However, if He could have been born in this day and age and still fulfilled the prophecies, I think the NT would have read a lot more like Revelation most of the way through. If all other things could be equal, it would probably have played out like it already did, with Him dying ingloriously, being all but forgotten except by a few disciples who ran away to hide but then inexplicably got bold and started preaching that He had, indeed, risen. Then it would have spread all over the world. Not immediately, information age or no, but it would have.
no body understands OT better than jews...so when they say jesus is false messiah and OT prophecies werent fulfilled, we must trust them...
People do not die these days for doing what Jesus did do they?
No, they don't. At least not in the way He did. But we're dealing with a "what if," not an actual occurrence. Jesus was not born in the present day, and would not have been. Still, in the spirit of the question, if He had been born in the present day, other things would have had to be very different because they wouldn't have already happened.
I think the Church would have executed him.
Maybe he was here not long ago, and called himself mother teresa.
The mind boggles. Maybe at a soup kitchen, then go to a board room meeting, then off to a night club somewhere....Healing the sick, going to mental hospitals and healing them...Infinite possibilities....
the same thing that happened to him before, except instead of being crucified he'd get taken out by a drone.
I'm sorry to say that he would be faced with the same sort of ignorance now as he did then. People don't want to believe in a superior be especially if that being expect people to behave better than they do. Let us look back at prohibition, people are consuming alcohol which is destroying their arguments but rather than accepting a ban on this drinking we-(meaning people) drink ourselves into an early grave.
It seems as though the most intelligent are the ones who are most fervently against the idea of Jesus-(Christ) as were the Pharisees in years past.
Interesting comment. Compared to the society that existed during the days of the Roman Empire; I'd say we are all a bit prudish. The masses welcomed the wisdom of Jesus. Only the religious, who thought they had the upper hand morally, ignored him. I would venture to guess if he showed up today the religious would be the first to insist he was not to be listened to. Just as they are said to have done back then.

This is simply for Christians to share and discuss the prophecies they may know well, and/or better than some of the rest of us. It is for edifying and educating each of us further in understanding our God's Word. Though I posted it for prophecies, I think it would do us well to share scriptures in...
