Jesus W. Christ

It's my thousandth post, and I've chosen to celebrate by sharing with you all some of my favourite bits of scripture!



These lines are from the Beatitudes (Matthew 5:3-12) in the New Testament (the boring second book of the Bible with Jesus in.)





[quote]Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.



Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.



Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.



Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.



Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.



Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.



Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.



Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.



Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you. <hr></blockquote>



Amen.

    Here's another:



    Those that are kind to the cruel, are cruel the kind.

    "Call me eater of planets.Â* Call me Devourer of Worlds.Â* Call me Galactus.Â* To sustain myself, I must consume the essences of heavenly bodies.Â* It has always been so, and so it shall ever be."

    I thought his name was Jesus H Christ, not Jesus W Christ. What about Jesus H. W. Christ, as a compromise?

    I always thought his middle name was H Fücking. Anyway, Jesus is cool, his followers are often not.

    Shit. I had a link to a great painting of a white Jesus with a "Father" tattoo on his arm but the damn <a href="http://www.art4god.com"; target="_blank">www.art4god.com</a> server is down...

    Actually. if my memory doesn't fail me, it's by Shimeon ha-Darshan (Simon the Orator) of Frankfurt, from his Yalkuth Shimeoni written around 1250 or 1260.

    When commenting on the Book of Samuel, he argues that someone who shows mercy for the cruel and wicked ones, ends up committing cruelty and wickendess on the merciful ones.



    As for Yeshoua the Nazarene of Galilee, there are many sayings attributed to him. Here's one which is quite known:

    [quote]«Think not that I am come to send peace on earth; I came not to send peace, but a, sword. For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law, and a man's foes they shall be of his own household.» (Matthew X, 34-36)<hr></blockquote>

    (Could have been taken right out of the Liberation Manifesto of The Judean People's Front / General Command)



    There are more bits in the same vein where that came from, which tend to clash with the harmess hippie, bearded lady-like image so often associated with the character in question.



    If you ask me, I find rather futile the idea of recruting ancient characters from antiquity, as ammunition for arguing a contemporary matter.

    Immanuel, not from the <a href="http://www.prodeathpenalty.com/Judaism.htm"; target="_blank">Talmud</a> ?

    Could be. I recall it from the Yalkuth about Samuel (and i was mostly reminescing here) but as we know, books of Qodesh tend to quote more ancient ones, and while the page you linked mentions the Talmud as the source, it doesn't give the precise tractate or chapter.

    I could phone to ask one of my rabbinical relatives, disturbing the hectic preparations for Shabbos for some annoying questions, is what keep family relations warm.

    I'm sure you do. Ancient characters from antiquity. Like contemporary characters from the present. Only old.



    I see the problem.
