Even if he didn't, he would be, if he chose to.  Always nice to see xo entertain the irrationally irrelevant      ;D

If Jesus had the power to kill a tree with a word, or convert water into wine or confuse a croud sent to seize him so that he could walk right past them, then he had the supernatural equivelent of a superwepon on his hip the whole time.

Allowing himself to be beaten to death is a miricle of a sort , I don't know if I could put up with a fraction of it.

By the way , the toumb is empty because he only needed it a short time. Most of us will need to buy a grave , but really, shouldn't a Christian rent one?

The thing is, although he supposedly DIED for everyone's sins (even sins that would not be committed for 20 centuries), he did not appear to do what most people fear about death, which would be to stay dead. Every year, herds of people in the Philippines and the mountains of New Mexico have themselves crucified. I bet crucifixion would be the next extreme sport if not for the fact that after you are dead, you do not come back.

And Jesus only seems to have paid a very short visit.

There is always the possibility that he died of complications after that.

Probably because he was the Son of God and had more important priorities on his table

At the very, very least, Jesus should have taken some time to write the Gospel According to Jesus. Instead,. he left this up to four guys who may or may not have ever met him, who could not get their stories straight, and waited decades to write down anything.

Think about it: if your No. 1 priority is to bring the word of God to Man, then the very least you should do is get the story right.

I doubt very seriously Jesus, the Son of God, needs you to give him a consult on his itinerary or literary agents.  And I have no problem with the message that's been passed on.  I'll pray for improved clarity for you, if you're having that much trouble.

Not to mention, the added irrelevancy that Jesus would have ever needed a firearm, when he had an Angelic Army at his call

He clearly needed some PR guidance, which came in the form of Paul. As for angels, all I can say is get effing serious!

Trying to lay claim to Jesus needed a gun to save himself, and you're ranting about getting serious?      :o

Jesus existed as the word of God.

He didn't do his job as you would have?

He may have understood his job in a diffrent way than you.

Perhaps "teacher" was his priority two?

So what was his main priority?

Ending moneychanger abuse at the Temple?

There is no rational reason for there NOT to have been a Gospel according to Jesus.

The New Testament is full of strange stuff, but it is a better read than the Koran, which is even more irrational and more deeply weird.

Since that only happened the once I don't think it was even a second priority, but it fit into his agenda .

Grant wrote a book about his life and times and presidency,Lincon did not , is there a rational reason for this?

Strange is not a measure that can be relyed on because the questions being answered include a lot of things that are outside day to day experience. Rational is not a good measure if what is being considered includes things beyond our understanding. Quantum mechanics probly seems a lot more rational to people who adeal with it every day.
Faith can be misplaced , why God wants it is a mystery.
