Brethren and Sistern
One thing that really sickens me is when FALSE Christians are portraying their hippy-dippy flower-power Jesus. They always paint him as a young boy in his thirties!
Obviously this is pure rot. There’s no way such a young snot – 30 years of age – could speak with the authority of a master and pastor. You might argue that Jesus is God – sure, but God is eternal and far more than 30 years old, so that’s rather irrelevant, isn’t it?
So how old was Jesus? He gives us an answer in the fourth gospel:
John 2:18 Then answered the Jews and said unto him, What sign shewest thou unto us, seeing that thou doest these things?
John 2:19 Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.
John 2:20 Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days?
John 2:21 But he spake of the temple of his body.
John 2:22 When therefore he was risen from the dead, his disciples remembered that he had said this unto them; and they believed the scripture, and the word which Jesus had said.
We’re all aware that our body is a temple of God (1 Peter 2:5, 1 Corinthians 3:16-17, 1 Corinthians 6:19, 2 Corinthians 6:16, Ephesians 2:21-22) – but here we have Jesus comparing His own body to a specific temple – one that it had taken 46 years to build, and which He would resurrect in 3 days.
It is written (John 2:22) that when “he was risen from the dead, his disciples remembered that he had said ” about the 3-days resurrection, but everybody conveniently forgot about the 46 years – including the kiddie-diddlers in the Vatican.
There’s a message here to all angst-ridden pizza-faced teenage know-it-alls who pester this HOLY board. And the message is that life starts at forty, and till you reach maturity, it would behoove you to listen to your betters and stop flaunting your ignorance.
