Robert says.<quoted text>
I agree with you here. Some like preston consider that Jesus' kinsfolk are mocking Jesus here calling him out of his mind. But I just can't see it like that.
I see his kin as being concerned for Jesus' health and safety, and the expression used here is a bit more dramtic in the story, to show how extreme the situation exists.
The question is as Jesus was concerned for eternal salvation for humanity, is that a sane thing for God to demonstrate? In the post ressurrection world, we of course say ,"Yes." But before the glory of Jesus revelation of the Father it would be very difficult to see....
....Some like preston consider that Jesus' kinsfolk are mocking Jesus here calling him out of his mind. But I just can't see it like that.
....Robert says .you just can't see it that way.
So! we should interpret the bible exactly how you want it to read?
I read it the exact way it is written. Are you now saying the inspired WORDS of God are incorrectly written?
When Paul says James is the brother of the Lord, I guess that is wrong too.
What is the point in the bible if you can change meanings and words to fit your personal agenda?
Where does the fiction stop and the truth begin?
.....something is wrong Robert F.
