Now that's nicely written.<quoted text>I don't mean to upset you, but I think you were upset that you had to face something that was uncomfortable. We all have to do that at some point in our lives. It's kind of like the first time you find out your parents actually have sex. LOL
While her statement may have been worded incorrectly, it was in general factual. I think that upsets a lot of theists who believe that Jesus was a teaching magnate in a whole country. The fact is that Jesus taught in a very small area. His travels, according to everything written about him, were limited.
And, like it or not, he didn't become famous in a wider area until Paul traveled and told people what he wanted them to believe rather than what Jesus actually taught.
Therefore, there are no documents or coins or busts or statues to record what he looked like or even what he actually said.
I truly think there is enough evidence (for me) to think that Jesus was a charismatic, intelligent and wise Rabbi who taught in such a way that the Jewish priests feared him. He tried to teach the Jews how to use the Torah in a way that was the heart of the laws rather than the strict legal aspect of the law; how to be compassionate; how to take care of each other; and how to live a life giving of oneself to other human beings.
None of this is said to hurt your feelings (or anyone else's) but is said because it is my own observation.
And even as an atheist, I can find nothing with which to disagree.
