As if he is going to tell his followers that the real Apostles told him to sit down and shut up.
Remember Paul was in Rome and visited Jerusalem only once and very briefly. Also there is much to indicate that his comments on Peter were were possible fabrications as there is much evidence that Peter was never in Rome:
"First of all, there is no place in the New Testament where there is any hint or any record of any kind that Peter was in Rome. In 1 Peter 5:13, it tells us very plainly that he wrote that epistle from the city of Babylon [In Peters day Babylon was still a city and a territory—See Josephus, Antiquities, Book xv, Ch 2, 2. "The ancient city of Mesopotamia, an area which was then a center of pure and uncompromising Judiasim" p. 65, 1 Peter by A. M. Stibbs. ACT 2:9 tells us they were in the Pentecost crowd. "After the fall of Jerusalem in AD 70 Babylonia became, and for centuries remained, a seat of Jewish Schools devoted to the study and interpretation of the law" Dictionary of the Bible, p. 72, by J. J. Davis]. This is far to the east of the Roman Empire and not in Rome which is in the western part of the Empire. This is where Peter apparently had much of his ministry among the many Jews scattered there from previous centuries. He was there preaching that the Messiah had come, that Jesus Christ was that promised Messiah, and that Jesus Christ was the only hope of salvation. He was there preaching to those people when he wrote the epistles of 1 and 2 Peter. He wrote to those who were in what is now Asia Minor or what is now modern Turkey. All of these districts that he mentions are in a little section of eastern Turkey. The New Testament gives no statement or hint whatever that Peter was ever in the City of Rome, the Capital of the Roman Empire in his day.
There is some groundless tradition that says Peter was in Rome. One problem with the tradition is that the tradition is full of errors, mistakes, things that are incorrect. I’ve read parts of Josephus, all of the Apostolic Fathers, in English translation. Time and time again, as I read in these old writings, or check some writers reference to them. The references are there but in the very context in which the references are found the whole thing was full of things that are contradictory to the New Testament. Therefore being contrary to the New Testament their evidence is worthless."

<quoted text>Joseph and Mary were cousins from the same Judaean tribe... both of their lineages linked to King David who was from the tribe of Judah... and then the rest of the geneology shows King David's ancestral line and connection to judah.
Remember the Roman census? They had to go back to their home town to be counted (for tax reasons)... that was Bethlehem which was in Judah.
There are no records of Rome ever performing a census as described in the Bible. Rather, it is contraindicated by all other sources and archaelogy.

The closest one cancome is the cencus of Emperor Augustus (27 BC – AD 14) which places it long after Jesus "sat on the steps of the Temple".

It is more likely that in the telling of the legends, timelines got confused.

You have ignored every FACT I presented in favor of the interpretation that you were taught to believe.
You choose to believe your opinion even when faced with facts that prove it to be in error.
Sorry but I rejected your "facts" because they fall in contradictory with what I know from God's spirit to be true, you rely far too heavily on historical tidbits that are not always factual and it will ultimately let you down.

<quoted text>If you don't mind, I'd like to add that if our anointed Savior, like Father, could not be tempted, or was unable to sin, then his being tempted, all in all, was pointless, and makes null and void the fact that he conquered sin. None can't conquer what they never confront.
Additionally, he was our substitute on the cross. A substitute must, especially in the case of his sacrifice, identify perfectly with the initial subject, being susceptible to sin. As our sacrifice, he could not be unclean, nor a sinner, as such sacrifices were prohibited by the law. To avoid uncleanness, he was conceived without an earthly father. To remain perfect, he had to overcome every temptation while being just as susceptible to sin as we are. If he was not susceptible to sin, then he would not have been a proper, acceptable substitute.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
What I meant by my earlier post is that Jesus is God the Son... that He has and always had (even before the earth was formed) his own uniqueness from God The Father. But being sent to make atonement He became the Son of man also and you know that story goes.

So being that the Son of God became the Son of man He could tempted by evil... but God, His Father, cannot be tempted by evil nor does He tempt anyone to do evil. In my understanding God the Son isn't and was never God The Father... He has always simply been God's Son.

Well folks, believe when I say that i hate to go because the conversation is really good... but gotta go to work and I'm a little behind schedule getting there. I was hoping to get to Revelation 1:4 but perhaps I can get to it in The AM.

Have a blessed day and thanks for the discussion.

Which higher, intelligent, supreme being do you worship?

How did you come to learn of this being?

If asked to provide written evidence of this being, what source(s) do you recommend?

I ask, again, and add; How did you come to learn of this being? and when?

And atheists contend that the thoughts, actions, reactions, and speech of everyday life, positive and negative, disproves the existence of any "God/god." How does your answer and belief contend with that of an atheist?

And I can agree with your last statement, but without some form of religion, how did you come to even an acknowledgement of a higher power?
