If, let's say, Jesus was born in 2013 instead of then...what would happen?

So.

Jesus becomes mildly famous in the loal area for I don't know, healing people or something, and saying e is the son of God.

Would you believe him and be a disciple?

And if you HAD been born when you believe when Jesus was alive...would you have been brave enough to a)believe in him and b)follow him?

I'm an atheist btw, born Jewish b converted, and DH is a Hindu so I dont believe in Jesus/Christiniaty but what about Christians?

Although hopefully the price of fish would come down

He would be my beat friend! Turning water into wine? I'd be a Jesus Groupie!

This thread is brilliant.

I imagine that jesus would go the sink comprehensive roughest school in town. A mircle would happen and the kids would actually pass their exams.

madhairday like the logic! But if you follow him now having not physically met him am pretty sure you would follow him now if you did (as would I, I really hope). smile

V interesting thread!

snort @ Daily Fail/Cameron/Osborne's view of Jesus as a useless member of society.

IDS might like him because it would mean thousands of people could come off DLA because they get healed.

But then he'd hate him because J would stand up for all those who get thrown off by ATOS and are still ill, and would campaign for them and get cross.

I hope I'd follow him. I think we are much more sceptical now, and think of anyone who makes such claims as Jesus did as being a bit of a nutter. One more reason that the first century AD was the best time strategically grin

Yes he'd try.

But the teachers wouldn't like him very much (because he'd tell them that they were wrong about things).

So I don't think he'd have a very nice school experience.

I kind of agree trills he might have been bullied but I also think he might have tried to combat the bullies, just as he took on the spiritual bullies of his day.

Phew seeker I didn't quote I referenced! (Wink)

He would be diagnosed with schizophrenia, put on anti-psychotics and probably sectioned

this is what would happen in reality, i agree

Trills Sun 07-Apr-13 10:47:36

He would have been bullied at school for being odd.

MortifiedAdams Sun 07-Apr-13 10:47:05

He would tweet his sermons

The last supper would be at an all you can eat buffet and theyd be thrown out after the two hour time slot

He would have a live stream webcam on the grave / cave www.willheressurect.com

Mary would have given birth at the local hospital, had an epidural and forceps and would have had to fight off the Bounty Lady.

I know, Italian. The devil can quote scripture........grin

seeker it's John 14.10 if you are interested you can Google it. I can't and paste easily on my phone, apologies.

Annunziata Sat 06-Apr-13 22:38:41

Obviously he'd be Italian, because his mamma thinks he's the Son of God and he think she's a virgin grin

I'm going to Hell, but that joke makes me laugh blush

Great idea for a these. seeker Jesus did say if you have seen me you have seen the father, not a direct quote, will find it if I can.

he'd get his face on the DM front page for a day. be interviewed on this morning. some would buy into him. most would ignore him i imagine.

Then one day ge would get really angry at some evil product packaging and would turn over the printers! Would I follow him now, hope so, expect so. Would I have followed him if I had been around at the time if his arrival on earth? Hope so, expect do. I am a follower now so I would imagine if I heard about him them I would have.

If Jesus showed up for the first time now there would be no churches to approve or disapprove of him. I like the idea of Jesus putting in laminate flooring but my guess is he would work in an office as a lot of people do these days. Yet I do think ge would do something creative, having created the universe and all, so I am guessing designer and maybe designing packag etc.

if he showed up in the US they'd call him a pinko commie liberal grin

AnAirOfHope Sat 06-Apr-13 20:56:59

If i could not prove him a fake i would be a follower. Im an opptamist and belive in goodness, i would want to help people.

What a great thread! Despite being interested, I have nothing to add - except that he'd probably listen to the stone roses

LOLat LeeCoakley re the table for 13 !!

.....and the local drunks (and me) would be happy to have him as a friend as he can turn water into wine grin
