Bible Scholars Debate Jesus' Meaning

Recommended Posts

VickySGV

The earliest books of the Bible were not written in a vacuum and other writings of the times do refer to non-binary people around the towns and in the crowds that would have been around Jesus. Another issue is that even the so called "red letter" words of Jesus are not provable in a court of law here in the U.S. or English Law based countries, since they are at best third hand hearsay. This article and it's experts actually make me laugh. The person who propounded the idea the JC was talking about non-binaries would be the more right of the three, since YES he did not use the work Eunuch, since it is not Aramaic, it is Greek, and that was not his language, and heaven alone knows how the Greek speaker corrupted the original ideas. Just like the fact that "Homosexual" never appeared in any Bible before the mid 1900"s. The Jury is out in my view of this.

The Israel of old did in fact recognize and accept 6 different genders.

Hi.

Seems yet again words on words with out meaning regardless of the meaning and that is hidden , much of what has been said is not correct because of western thinking and the translating done was not allways correct and then mis translated wrong .

King James told his scribes to translate the many different writings and make a book of it and much of that only concerned those people to ...WHO ...it concerned and what happened later it was used to control people through the church is it any wonder we have so many different meanings so what changed from the 1600 when it was done were the writings really correct and the real life storys true .....think again .....much or some of the bible as we have it ,.....is it 100 % .....NO, and this is the problem plus many writings were outed because it did not conform to those who translated the writings and we dont have the first writen by hand that was done by those first writers = scribes of those early days go back to when the first parchments how many can we say we have today unless it was writen on stone or similar say 4000 years ago and can we check them .

What a pity people cant just accept difference that is part of our human bodys no it has to be all boxed up nice and neat and left out of sight and out of mind and yet people are told of look at nature and look beyound what you think you see and learn and youll find in nature those differences . strange . none so blind as those who are ,

      Hi Jackie,   I have experienced a few disconnections from the site and this undoubtedly explains why. I hope you can resolve the technical problems soon! 🤗

      I always wanted to take aikido. It looks effective.

      @Charlize @Jani Thank you both for the reassurance.  I never want to ruin a good thing with a family relationship.  I was playing it safe to some degree but when you have only bits and pieces of a particular situation you’re serving an entree of ‘best guess’ with a side of ‘wisdom’.   Thanks again, Susan R🌷

      Well yes and no.  My dad still uses the nickname I used for decades.  It sounds silly when he does it.  My wife even commented on it when we last saw them.  I'm at the point of not caring anymore since I'm comfortable with who I am and if its said loud enough in public, he's the one who seems odd.  Plus we don't see my parents face to face regularly.   So the daughter just may see it as not worth the effort.    This would be a nice outcome.     Jani

      Hey Spence! Welcome to the forum, we welcome you with open arms

      I would have done the same thing you did Susan.  I say that from my own experience.  It has taken my son many years to properly name me and not refer to me as Dad in public.  When we are together in private it doesn't bother me but in public it can cause confusion and embarrassment.  If the woman does use her daughters chosen name and it disturbers her daughter i'm sure she will say something.  My guess is that she would see it as a final acceptance.   Hugs,   Charlize

      Thanks susan, and you dont have to think i was putting up with anything, its just nice to hear im not completely alone even in some small way,heh

      Haha that's true.     He is so hyper and excited all the time it is adorable and hard to keep up with him, and I thought I was hyper!! But I really think he was throwing some hints at me and I am definitely taking them and keeping them. He seems like the kind who likes to tease playfully so I better watch out haha.

      Asking the Trans person is always in good taste and correct manners.  My only caution is to do it at a private time between the two of them.

      Welcome Magical Realism, a pleasure to meet you...You are not alone in this at all.  I too have been having dreams like this.  I’ve had them for decades but since going full time they now have changed slightly. Mine were a little different [pre-transition] in that the fact that I was presenting male except I had breasts accompanied by a bra under my male clothes. The funny thing is that in almost every dream, the people in the dream were unknowing of my little secret until later in the dream, I eventually always get outed by some ridiculous circumstance..lol.  But oddly enough, since actively starting my transition, I am always presenting as Susan.  It’s almost as if my subconscious is aware of my conscious activities...(kidding)   Well Magical Realism, thanks for putting up with my ramblings. These things happen from time to time. I’m glad you came aboard...hope you stay for the ride.   Warmest Regards, Susan R🌷

      I would have been a little more direct and said, "Maybe you should ask her." That's just me though. I can't think of a reason I would be uncomfortable if my mother started calling me by my actual legal name and using the correct pronouns. Well, I might be a little skeeved out. We're not close and she's been hostile about it up until now. She'd be up to something. Your new friend though, she seems sincere.   I don't see anything wrong with your answer. It never hurts to try and make a loved one more comfortable when you're talking to them.   Hugs!

      My wife & I are attending an inclusive church regularly now and afterwards we attend an adult class at the church.  Right now, we’re in the middle of a 7 week study called ”Dialogues on Sexuality”.  The class focuses on LGBTQ+ inclusiveness, birth gender, gender roles, church patriarchy, and gender identity.  It’s been very good.  I think this class is the church’s way to get the members of congregation to learn, understand and adopt their “inclusiveness doctrine”.  It’s early in the game but they’re trying so hard and for the most part, we feel very welcome there.   My wife brought one of the class members over to me after the class was over.  My wife had been talking to her and confided with her in the small group time.  The nice woman had an interesting question for me. Her daughter is a 36 year old MtF.  The daughter is now called by her new female name by everyone except her.  So this lady asked me, “If my daughter hasn’t specifically asked me to call her by her female name but has asked others in front of her to use her female name, should I continue to use her male birth name?” Then added, “Do you think she minds?”   I had to pause and think.  I said, ”You're using all the correct pronouns, why not match that when you address her and do what she asks the others around her to do.”  I added, “I think out of respect and love, she is simply not correcting you.  Make her day and starting right now, only use her new female name...see how she reacts. Or you could just ask her but doing it out of your own volition will probably make her happiest”    I honestly don’t know if I gave her the best advice because on the small chance her daughter wanted only her to call her by her birth name I could of messed up a good thing.  I just saw it through my own eyes.  Well, this lady and then my wife started tearing up and she now wants us to get together.  I’m just hoping I helped instead of hampered the situation.  I really don’t know the daughter so it’s a hard call and wondering if I there was any advice, different or not, you all would’ve given this nice lady.   Susan R🌷
