    Folks, in Judeo traditions Jesus Christ is not recognized either as a son of God or manifestation of God. In fact not recognized at all. He is even considered one of the many false Messiah's in history.

    The best they can do to appease Christians politically is to call him a good teacher.

      You must be either Muslim or the dumbest Jew in the world. Salvation of the world came through the Jews.

      Jesus ate, sat, and spoke in the homes of Jewish scholars, Pharisees, saduchees, and Scribes. You know no sinner or gentile was permitted to enter their home much less eat at their table.

      His coming was prophetized by Jewish prophets and King David. His teachings and words were written in Jewish tongue and written by Jewish hand. It was these Jewish witnesses and their Jewish account and Jewish authors who testified to his divinity and sonship of God.

      This Jesus taught openly in the synagogues and temples and he read Scripture in the Temple. He was born and raised by a Jewish Woman and Mother Mary and raised in the rubics and teachings of the Jewish faith. And pilgramage to Jerusalem to celebrate the mandates of the Passover with Jewish family and Jewish friends.

      There are many things people will dispute about regarding Christianity, Jewish Faith, and Jesus however no one disputes the above account except the insane and the liar.

    Actually, folks, the entire Large Magellanic Cloud in the constellation Dorado ( Gold fish ) is a beautiful profile of Jesus
    Christ with a crucifix in front. See page 234 of Carl Sagan's COSMOS, 1980 hardback edition by Random House. Turn
    the bottom left corner down and Voila! Amazing. See also Matthew 24:30 for possible explanation. Enjoy!

    @ Outspoken

    wake up. Simply stated, in Jewish view Jesus of Nazareth was an ordinary Jewish man and preacher living during Roman occupation of the Holy Land. Nothing more.

    As for Muslims, besides Christians they are the only people on this planet who recognize & revere Jesus Christ as a holy prophet and messenger of God. Their holy book the Koran mentions Jesus Christ 28 times. Reaffirms the Immaculate Conception, the miracle of the birth of Lord Jesus Christ, his childhood miracles and his ministry. The Koran has a whole chapter devoted to Holy Mary and her story right up to the Miraculous Birth, declaring her to be the highest among all women. It also reaffirms Jesus's Second Coming before the end of days to establish God's Kingdom.
    Christians who got curious after all this hulla baloo against Islam are now learning this thru research and inter faith meetings.

    At. the heart of Judaism is monotheism & singularity of God. The focal point of Judaism is the Torah, its Commandments, the Tanakh and ethical monotheism such as in the Shema. All of this predated Jesus Christ.

    Worship of a person is considered idolatory in Judaism and is forbidden.

    And the fight continues! I thought this post was about Billy Graham? A man of God his entire lifetime. Why can we not let him live his life until he is called and just respect him for what he taught.

    This is a good reminder of how frail we all are. By the grace of God Mr. Graham lived a long and health life.

    In just a few days this world will experiance a great earthquake it has never seen before. We read about this in Revalation 16:18 And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great.

    This will take place May 21 2011. All this information comes from the Bible. anytime God brought judgment He warned His people. This information was sealed in the Bible till the end. We read about this in Daniel 8-12. Daniel wanted to know about this but God told him to seal these(the end) things up until the end. Once we come to the end we read that Christ will remove these seals.

    Many will take great comfort in a few verses such as "No man knoweth" "he is coming as a thief" or "neither the Son"
    These verses can all be explaind through other parts of the bible. No man could know this untill the end as we read in Daniel 12. There is only 9 days left to cry mightily unto God for mercy. Who can tell, maybe God will have mercy.

    When the Ninivites heard about time and judgment they cried mightily unto God for mercy saying, Who can tell, maybe God would have mercy. They knew it was only up to God. We read in romans 9 that He will have mercy on whom He will. For muck more information about May 21 2011 you can go to or

    Writing under three stage names here (Jazzzzzzzz, Caesar, Julius, and Outspoken!) was wonderful to see.
    I deeply regret that most of our citizens today could not match the verbal skills of the average American living during the 1950s.
