Is Huggy saying there is absolutely nothing to be learned from fiction?

That the authors never impart any wisdom or philosophy through their craft?

Do artists' creations have no meaning whatsover?

Huggy must live in a very bleak world, devoid of art, imagination or meaning.

Well...except for that whole religion thing....

How can he find meaning in his religion if he seems to not think abstractly?

Is it like an idiot savant?

The answer is.....

YES

It is obvious that his world is bleak - his (lack of) attitude towards learning new things is evidence of this.

Actually there is debate as to whether they were a group of believers known as the Essenes (Jesus being a Nazarene and all) or not. From an outside perspective (I'm christian), messianic judaism appears to be the closest one can get to seeking The Way as the original twelve did. However, I have read that Jews don't consider it to be a branch of Judaism. Again, I am not a Jew. I am a gentile who chooses to live as closely to the root of the Tree of Life as possible.
HughBe--"Messianic Judaism" sounds like a branch of Judaism to me.

Tell me, how did the Jews who followed Jesus, the Jew, view their discipleship?

Justsay--- From an outside perspective (I'm christian), messianic judaism appears to be the closest one can get to seeking The Way as the original twelve did. However, I have read that Jews don't consider it to be a branch of Judaism.

HughBe---Indeed SOME modern Jews don't consider Messianic Judaism to be a branch of Judaism BUT I can assure you that not ALL share that view.
Historically, the 12 JEWISH apostles certainly regarded it as a part of "Judaism". The early Jewish Christians who attended synagogues certainly did. Secular society certainly regarded Christianity as a branch or SECT of Judaism and this was the case for hundreds of years.

Note, there is a NASTY habit of the rabbis of Judaism to redefine historical concepts to fit their fabricated teachings. Fortunately there are historical records that give a TRUE version of history.

Finally, the modern Jews in the movement that you speak of certainly regard Messianic Judaism as a branch of Judaism. Indeed the name says it all.

HughBe-- I made no mention of WORSHIP.

HughBe---LYING as usual Judahite. Your point is that Simpson is a SOURCE of wisdom. Let me allow your own words to express the idea, "Homer Simpson is also a SOURCE of wisdom"

Now son, try and understand my words and your own words also. Your current post shows that you have missed out on many BASIC things including understanding and brains.

My words, study them--- in your mind Homer Simpson is the SOURCE of the wisdom that comes from him.

You are being dishonest. This is not at all what Frijoles said.

I know actual facts annoy you (and elude you), but this is what he wrote:

"just because someone says something wise doesnt mean that they were historically real. This is the reason why we have fiction. You have no more proof that Jesus was real than I have that Homer Simpson was real. And that doesnt demean their teaching in any way."

Are you suggesting that the character of Homer never uttered any wisdom?(obviulsy as written by his creators)

Did Jesus ever utter any wisdom?(as recorded by the creators of the bible)

The Essene and jesus and the 12 are as far apart as is possible.
Devaux had the dead sea scrolls far too long, and interpreted everything towards his experience and culture. So we get catholic and convent. Which would be an anachronism.
Well several sites/links point out the flaws.
In customs but also as to the actual use of the place, as found by proper archeology. And not biassed BAR enthousiasts.
But the main one would be that the trinkets, amulets and other papers and scrolls are spread over a wide area...but...all just above the highwatermark.
And only accessible from above.
And that waterlevel rise can again be dated by the proper science.
As well as the dating of the scrolls. If Essenes were a disparate people, moving in small groups, that allready does not fit with some huge organisation, nor is the timeframe right.

Personally I'm a Christian. So I believe deeply that Jesus is the Messiah. Jews don't. Yet we worship the same God. From a Christian (non Romanized) standpoint, I understand it like this. Salvation is offered to us through REbirth (the blood sacrifice of Jesus) in the manner that the Jews have salvation through birth. It's their birthright. He acted as our "skapegoat" if you will. Remember that from the old covenant? Blood had to be shed for our sins so he offered his. Again, that is just my understanding of it. I can completely understand why Jews don't see Messianic Judaism as actual Judaism. Because they don't believe Jesus is the Messiah. They're still waiting on him to come back. And I can respect their decision because I love the same God they do.
