The post when published it disappear please use the PDF version, thank you
We read in the Bible that Jesus was sent to earth, to die for our sins, to experience all our pain, etc. [NOW WAIT] I know there are some of you who are reading this that are already saying that this is not true, ok I am not giving my opinion here one way or the other but I am simply stating some facts from the Bible and I would like your opinion So here goes,;
She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus because he will save his people from their sins.” There are a lot of questions here, do you believe that Mary was and remained a virgin? Do you believe that Jesus was really the son of God? And do you believe that he came to save us from our sins?
1 Peter 2:19 New International Version (NIV)
19 For it is commendable if someone bears up under the pain of unjust suffering because they are conscious of God.
If Jesus experienced all our pain then why are we all going through so much pain? My opinion?, What is yours?
My last question is a very touchy one with a lot of people that you cannot talk about so if you do not wish to comment I will understand. Today we here a lot of talk about whether Jesus and Mary Magdalene were married and had children and did anyone ever look at what the Bible had to say on the subject?
First, we have to remember that Jesus was a Jew and not a Christen. So let us go to the Old Testament. Genesis 26-31
26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
29 And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you, it shall be for meat.
30 And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to everything that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so.
31 And God saw everything that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth days.
King James Version (KJV)
According to my understanding of the Old Testament, it was the tradition for men to marry following God’s command to multiply and replenish the earth. If I am wrong here as far as Jesus is concerned it really doesn’t make any difference to me, I know what I believe and my belief is between me and God.
Well, these are just a few questions of many that we hear every day that people are searching for answers to. , maybe you or someone reading this might have the answer that the person is searching for so let us try to help each other.
