Prophecies are hogwash and very rarely fulfil themselves.
It's now time to get down to action.
Get it?
Jesus fulfilled so many prophecies, that it would be a zillion to one, to ever do so. Plus I noticed many verses you took out of context, and /or don't understand,since you must have your eyes opened spiritualy by God, before you can truly understand. Yet He said many verses that were hard to understand. The bible is called the sword, just to answer one. He didn't come to bring peace, but division. If someone gets saved, and they are in an all Jewish or atheist family, do you not think that there will be division? All you have to do, is read this topic.:)

The sentences were almost all incoherent at best. I read but it sounds like someone wrote this to give the meaning of Jesus and Him feeding his followers with the fish. It sounds like someone went out and made this up to say, "look we have same story, we true people."

Living aside the pseudo miracle of the milk... You started by saying which "swords" your prophet used against his enemies, but end up by telling the story of Muhammad feeding a foodless person named Abu Hurirah.
You went out the theme you started.
rabbee: yeah! sounds more like a bs, bait and switch idol feeding frenzy to me. involving worshiping them in their religion, rather than G-D. but i have had enough of this worship us, in our only true religion. and come worship yourself, with us.

I think the fulfilled prophecies of Nostradamus' or of Edgar Cayce outnumber those attributed to Jesus.

Can you post just 1 original and truly profound teaching of Jesus?

Only evil men and lunatics come to maim, kill and divide humankind.

Jesus said - I give you peace, my peace....

Isn't this a truly arrogant remark from Jesus?

Did the peace that Jesus brought into the world helped humankind or the unregenerate terrestrial consciousness in any way?

Yes it would be the comment a very arrogant person would make, UNLESS that person could backup what they say. Yet Jesus made many comments that would make Him a liar or crazy, UNLESS what He said was true.

There is no peace in this world, not before or after Jesus came, and died on the cross, and riding the third day.
There is only peace that the believers in Jesus have.

I felt like a caged lion for years as an atheist, but after the night I was born again, the very first thing to happen to me, is that for the first time in my life I had peace. A piece that passes all understanding.

So, what is the root mechanism of peace? How does it relate to terrestrial matter?

How does the peace of say the 18th plane of consciousness differ from the peace of the 12th plane? Any idea? Even that lunatic Jesus would not know the answer, understand?

TANAKH VERSUS NT:

The NT should not be interpreted through the myopic lens of the Tanakh. Both preach quite different core philosophies. NT, in many critical parts, can be and should be evaluated in the light of the exalted monism taught by the Vedanta and Buddhism.

However, the philosophy preached by the Vedanta, Buddhism and NT are limited and incomplete.

The observant Jews and Seaside Soon on this thread have disputed this claim and shown it to be wrong - The Christian claim is a case of deliberate and faulty translations/misinterpretation s. In my readings, too, I've not found any direct reference to either Jesus or Muhammad in the Tanakh or in any other scripture that pre-dates these bogus prophets.

Poor Jesus came to save the world but he couldn't save himself. The world is in a bigger mess due to his advent. LOL.
