Actually, the NT was written in Koine Greek because that was the common language of the Roman Empire in the 1st century. Latin replaced it about the 5th or 6th century AD. Jesus is a transliteration of the Greek word ιησουs. Yeshua is Aramaic and is more correctly the name Joshua which means ‘YHWH’s salvation’ or ‘YHWH saves’.

I most of you are misreading the event at Cana. First of all John clearly says this was the first of His signs, not the first recorded. Second, it is clear that there must be a reason for Jesus to be there and that is, this is a family affair. One of His brothers or sisters is getting married. Probably a brother since Mary is concerned that the other family’s honor is at stake. Why is she concerned if she is just a guest? If that’s the case she has no part in it. Joseph is dead and Jesus is the oldest of her children, so as per any Jewish family, she goes to Him to do something. After He protests, she ignores Him and simply tells the servant to, “just do what He tells you”. Then she goes about her business as a mother-in-law/mother. She is not expecting a miracle, since He has not exhibited any powers since birth. Perhaps she expected Him to go buy some wine or get it somehow. We know what He did and it was the first manifestation of His glory by giving His blessing to a wedding.

When they cut your infidel head off, how will you think then?

you are all correct. Islam is a militant totalitarian theocracy and you either get on board or die! That’s just how it stands. It uses the window dressing of a religion to disguise the true intent. What we have going on in Europe and now the U.S. is not immigration but soft invasion. That is, until they attain 50% or near it, then it will be soft no more. They will start demanding, wait…they are already demanding we submit to their way of thinking. As more and more muslims are elected to office or put into positions of power you will see the real effects of the invasion. By 2050, Europe and the U.S.A. will no longer be what we would recognize. That’s because people don’t THINK before they vote! As my shipmates in the Navy used to say, “The stupid shall be punished!”

The huge difference you have missed is that no where in the New Testament (which is about how Christians are to live is there even a hint that what has happened in the past is how we are to live. Islam can’t make that claim. M. was “peaceful” in the first part of the Quran but in the later part he went full bore into killing of Jews, Christians and all infidels that won’t convert. This is what M. practiced and what he told his followers to do. So, do I agree that in the past Christians have not always lived up to the teachings of Christ, yes. However, there is no comparison to what the N.T. says and what the unholy Quran says. Not even close!

Mr. Astin shoes that being an actor does not always translate into intelligence or demonstrate critical thinking. Obviously, he supports everything Clinton, Obama, Sanders and all the rest of the leftist agenda spew forth. He seems like a nice individual and he was good in Rudy and LOTR, but sadly he really does not get what being a Christian 9disciple of Jesus) means. This is especially true concerning his view of Scripture.

I think I and a lot of others misunderstood Penn’s actions. Did he willingly or unwittingly help authorities? If willingly then Penn deserves our thanks. That needs to be made clear.

Her description about Mohammed is spot on! There are two sides to jihad, one is open warfare and the other is migration and breeding. The former is happening now with ISIS, the latter is happening in Europe, England and the U.S. It’s past time for people to wake up and smell the coffee. Unfortunately, this country stupidly elected, not once but twice, a man who is hell bent on turning America into the Middle East. I think that’s what he meant by ‘fundamental transformation’ of the country!

Mr. Walsh is correct and I think the only real solution is for both parties to get rid of their dualities. There used to be real actual conservatives in the Democrat Party. Not anymore, they were told to leave. The same needs to be done in the Republican Party except it the “Progressive”liberals who need to leave. We shouldn’t have candidates who are ashamed or embarrassed of conservatives in the party. It should be clear who and what we’re voting for. In England, there are two parties that are primarilly liberal and conservative. If the Dems want to be the left wing liberals, let’em. The Republican Party needs to be the sensible conservative alternative with no comprimises. We should have to constantly wonder exactly where our candidates stand as far as fiscal and social issues. All the remaining conservative Dems ought to leave that party and become Repulicans and all the RINOS need to leave for the Democrat party!

Someone should have asked her to have her body guards disarmed! We didn’t have terrorist concerns until Muslims were allowed into the country! The Dems have declared “Open Season” on all Americans by favoring Islam!
 December 20, 2015 at 4:58pm
Someone should have asked her if she would be willing to disarm her body guards? We didn’t have such concerns until the gov. started flooding the country with terrorists!

What the Atheists afraid of? Perhaps they should be, afterall reading the Bible can be hazardous to Unbelief! ! From all the noise Atheists make one would think they are fearless, guess not. Cowards one and all!
