The pope wouldn't leave his religion. As we can plainly see, he is trying to FIX his religion.

Martin Luther left his religion because he wanted the fame and glory of being the leader of a new religion, and to boot marry the ex-nun of his dreams.

Some things make sense, and some things don't. And "within the framework of theology," it makes no sense that Jesus would leave Judaism.

<quoted text> Chart listing some of the major archaeological finds...
ARCHAEOLOGICAL FIND SIGNIFICANCE
Mari Tablets Over 20,000 cuneiform tablets, which date back to Abraham's time period, explain many of the patriarchal traditions of Genesis.
Ebla Tablets Over 20,000 tablets, many containing law similar to the Deuteronomy law code. The previously thought fictitious five cities of the plain in Genesis 14 (Sodom, Gomorrah, Admah, Zeboiim, and Zoar) are identified.
Nuzi Tablets They detail customs of the 14th and 15th century parallel to the patriarchal accounts such as maids producing children for barren wives.
Black Stele Proved that writing and written laws existed three centuries before the Mosaic laws.
Temple Walls of Karnak, Egypt Signifies a 10th century BC reference to Abraham.
Laws of Eshnunna (ca. 1950 BC)
Lipit-Ishtar Code (ca. 1860 BC)
Laws of Hammurabi (ca. 1700 BC) Show that the law codes of the Pentateuch were not too sophisticated for that period.
Ras Shamra Tablets Provide information on Hebrew poetry.
Lachish Letters Describe Nebuchadnezzar's invasion of Judah and give insight into the time of Jeremiah.
Gedaliah Seal References Gedaliah is spoken of in 2 Kings 25:22.
Cyrus Cylinder Authenticates the Biblical description of Cyrus' decree to allow the Jews to rebuild the temple in Jerusalem (see 2 Chronicles 36:23; Ezra 1:2-4).
Moabite Stone Gives information about Omri, the sixth king of Israel.
Black Obelisk of Shalmaneser III Illustrates how Jehu, king of Israel, had to submit to the Assyrian king.
Taylor Prism Contains an Assyrian text which detail Sennacherib's attack on Jerusalem during the time of Hezekiah, king of Israel.
PAST CHARGES BY CRITICS ANSWERED BY ARCHAEOLOGY
Moses could not have written Pentateuch because he lived before the invention of writing. Writing existed many centuries before Moses.
Abraham's home city of Ur does not exist. Ur was discovered. One of the columns had the inscription "Abram."
The city built of solid rock called "Petra" does not exist. Petra was discovered.
The story of the fall of Jericho is myth. The city never existed. The city was found and excavated. It was found that the walls tumbled in the exact manner described by the biblical narrative.
The "Hittites" did not exist. Hundreds of references to the amazing Hittite civilization have been found. One can even get a doctorate in Hittite studies at the University of Chicago.
Belshazzar was not a real king of Babylon; he is not found in the records. Tablets of Babylonia describe the reign of this coregent and son of Nabonidus.

The very idea that a learned Jewish rabbi, would need Catholics to write his story, ought to put up red flags all over mentalities that are at all eager to ask questions.

Why would Jesus have not written his own story???

Why is there not one word written in his hand-writing, or his signature anywhere on earth???

I suggest that there was no Jesus who went to work in Catholic confessionals, and that the story was simply a handy RUSE for the disgruntled Jews that were intent on starting a new religion.

In the runaway # 1 British Bestseller,“Eats, Shoots & Leaves,” the subject of the book is about the importance of correct punctuation in the English language. The author, Lynne Truss, did extensive study into the history of punctuation. Lynne mixes humor with serious assessments of history and some of the following is from her book.

“Of course, if Hebrew or any of the ancient languages had included punctuation (in the case of Hebrew, a few vowels might have been nice as well), two thousand years of scriptural exegesis (my note- exegesis-analysis of texts) need never have occurred, and a lot of clever, dandruffy people could definitely have spent more time in the fresh air. But there was no punctuation in those ancient texts and that’s all there is to it. For a considerable period in Latin transcriptions there were no gaps between words either, if you can credit such madness. Texts from that benighted classical period- just capital letters in big square blocks- look to modern eyes like those word-search puzzles that you stare at for twenty minutes or so, and then (with a delighted cry) suddenly spot the word “PAPERNAPKIN” spelled diagonally and backwards. However, the scriptio continua system (as it was called) had its defenders at the time. One fifth-century recluse called Cassian argued that if a text was slow to offer up its meaning, this encouraged not only meditation but the glorification of God- the heart lifting in praise, obviously, at the moment when the word “PAPERNAPKIN” suddenly floated to the surface, like a synaptic miracle.”

Had Jesus lived, he would have had years to write of his experiences as a Jewish rabbi ... but the Catholics authors just touched on his supposed Judaism. It was Catholicism that the Catholics wanted to place in the lime-light, and so the story became Jesus wanted this and Jesus taught that and Jesus wants you to be a Catholic and blah, blah blah.

Keep in mind that the church fathers claimed the Jews were Jesus' enemies, that Jesus, in turn believed ought to be slayed.

Those Catholic church-fathers were not at all honest, or kind.

It's even more complicated than you might realize RoS. Let's take s look.
Hillel(his grandfather) came from Babylon{gasp}.He studied(learned) for 40 years in Israel(sound familiar?) was the founder of the greatest schools of learning (sages), heavily involved in the writings of the religion's sacred books, lived to 120 years(10CE), and the most profound and respected religious leader in Israel right up until Jesus was found talking to the most highly respected in the temple(who was that?) Do you see the correlation of the lives of Moses and he? Or even Abrum? And he is attributed the "Golden Rule" which Jesus is famous for promoting.
Before we leave this ...there were 3 royal magi/magoi who visited Jesus birth with the most meaningful gifts known to man at the time. They were objects given only in the highest of worship. Where do you suppose they may have come from and why? I will leave that to you. There is much more involved, but that is the jist of it.
Now to Gamaliel, and I will make this very brief. He followed in his grandfathers footsteps as far as prominence and was a member of the highest tribunal of the Jews. I believe he was, along with his grandfather(and possibly his father and others), secretly and covertly promoting the cause of Jesus and the apostles...one which may very well have been instituted by Hillel himself. This is just my opinion, but the evidence abounds in it's favor. The above is just a small part of a much larger story.
I knew,Hilel was a,famous teacher ..knew,scripture well..nut at His,time/ no one ! oh k skins about Jesus and the Apostles

But Simeon was an older man when he,saw,the baby ..was,he Gamaliel dad ..possibly .

Jesus,was 12 or 13 a t the temple ...I posit GAMALIEL was,most certainly there among the leading
Men..as a,student or as a,/ budding teAcher ??? which is why he was NOT AGAINST JESUS,
H ow,Paul was s o strident as h I s student ..no idea,...by he chAnged dramatically aft e r D a Damascus,.....SO WHO KNOWS what influenced his teachings ..how he preached after seeing Jesus,..

There is no physical proof concerning the existence of gods or saviors, and that is what we are discussing.

For years there have been rumors of Noah's ark being spotted, and then when that rumor dies down, another one about some biblical jargon being proved pops up and blah, blah, blah.

I don't believe any of those rumors ... such as Jesus' empty tomb. It's empty because there was never a body in it in the first place.

Nonsensical drivel.

Hogwash......Ro 10:14 Has nothing to do with your bogus "church"...

Verse 14. How then shall they call on him]
As the apostle had laid so much stress on believing in order to salvation, and as this doctrine, without farther explanation, might be misunderstood, it was necessary to show how this faith was produced; and therefore he lays the whole doctrine down in a beautifully graduated order.

1. There can be no salvation without the Gospel: a dispensation of mercy and grace from God alone, here called, Ro 10:15, the Gospel of peace; glad tidings of good things.

2. This must be preached, proclaimed in the world for the obedience of faith.

3. None can effectually preach this unless he have a Divine mission; for how shall they preach except they be SENT, Ro 10:15. The matter must come from God; and the person mho proclaims it must have both authority and unction from on high.

4. This Divinely-commissioned person must be heard: it is the duty of all, to whom this message of salvation is sent, to hear it with the deepest reverence and attention.

5. What is heard must be credited; for they who do not believe the Gospel as the record which God has given of his Son cannot be saved, Ro 10:14.

6. Those who believe must invoke God by Christ, which they cannot do unless they believe in him; and in this way alone they are to expect salvation. Professing to believe in Christ, without earnest, importunate prayer for salvation, can save no man. All these things the apostle lays down as essentially necessary; and they all follow from his grand proposition, Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. But, says the apostle, How shall they CALL upon him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they BELIEVE in him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they HEAR without a preacher? And how shall they PREACH except they be sent? And with what message which can bring salvation can they be sent, but with the GOSPEL OF PEACE, the GLAD TIDINGS OF GOOD THINGS. When, therefore, there is: 1st, a proper MESSAGE; 2dly, a proper MESSENGER; 3dly, the message PREACHED, proclaimed, or properly delivered by him; 4thly, the proclamation properly HEARD and attentively considered by the people; 5thly, the message which they have heard, conscientiously BELIEVED; 6thly, the name of the Lord Jesus, by whom alone this salvation is provided, most fervently INVOKED; then, 7thly, salvation, or redemption from sin and misery, and the enjoyment of peace and happiness, will be the result of such calling, believing, hearing, preaching, sending, and message sent:-and thus the doctrine of salvation by grace through faith is guarded from abuse.
