    jesus and his 12 disciples never married and hung out together as 13 “friends”. If only we had photography or videos of them.

    the virign marry – quite a story

    1 she was raped by a roman sodlier

    2 she knew that in her society of Leviticus, she’d be stoned to death. BTW in those times hte only thing safe to drink was wine.

    3.Daddy raped her Strange that her parents never get mentioned. Did she morph out of a cloud?

    1. i bet you are taking the Christmas period off work….your comments offend may GAY Christians…

  3. Good for them for stirring it up a bit. Nonsense, of course, as the Jesus of the bible is fiction. But middle eastern men still hang round in groups and, despite the harsh penalties, we know what they all get up to.

    1. . . . what a few of them get up to, Cal. (I lived in the Middle East for years. Most of those men in the cafes will be off to secret f**K-flats in the evening to meet with Middle Eastern women for you know what! At one point I had such a flat immediately above mine! Constantly meeting these black-sacked women ascending in the lift – reeking of perfumes!)

      Oh I’m certain someone named Yeshua existed, possibly a follower of John the Baptist who rose to prominence after John’s death. However, this whole Son of God Divine Perfect Being stuff is utter nonsense. They guy was a Rabbi with a lot of charisma, who could hold a crowd’s attention and built up a small but fanatical following.

      Then as the cult grew and his followers found out they had to compete with all the other religions and cults that swarmed throughout the Roman world the story got exaggerated into what it is today.

      If you have access to iPlayer watch The Dark Ages, a documentary on BBC4, which follows the evolution of Christianity from an art perspective. It demonstrates that pieces of imagery were purloined from competing gods of the time, such as the bearded Jesus, the Madonna and Child, the holy halo and even angels. For instance, Jesus was originally portrayed as a curly-haired girlish happy Harry Potter type, complete with wand for miracles. Fascinating stuff.

      1. I remember reading a book called ‘The Jesus Myth’ years ago…this seems to be a similar sort of thing: http://www.stellarhousepublishing.com/jesusmyth.html#.UM-LsG9Wx8E

    English lesson: to question something is to suggest it may well be *false*. That is not what is meant here.

  6. Jesus had two daddies

  7. was Jesus ever in the closet?

    if men gather together like Christ and his disciples they are now suspected of being homosexuals. This is where the sick people in our society has brought us.
