At work and currently listening in on a discussion where one woman is trying to explain to a colleague that Jesus was Jewish. Colleague isn't having it grin

Obviously Jesus was jewish.

TrojansAreSmegheads Fri 10-Nov-17 12:09:24

😂😂

what did colleague think he was?

IAmcuriousyellow Fri 10-Nov-17 12:10:17

He was mockingly called King of the Jews at his crucifixion! Course he was! How are they getting on?

brasty Fri 10-Nov-17 12:14:11

Trojan Colleague is swearing Jesus was a Christian grin

I am not getting involved.

MinorRSole Fri 10-Nov-17 12:24:46

Brilliant 😂 I love this sorts of conversations

LondonGirl83 Fri 10-Nov-17 12:25:39

That's funny! Of course Jesus was Jewish. Why argue about facts though. Surely Google could end the discussion quite quickly

Tell her to drop in the fact that he probably wasn’t white either, watch her head explode.

He may have started out as Jewish, but in setting up his own religion one can assume he dabbled in Christianity.

Jesus said: (Matthew 16:18) "And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build *MY CHURCH*; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it".

Or tell her to watch the documentary 'The Life of Brian' which gives a good insight.

I love arguments that carry on when a google would solve it. Personal favourite whether Paul O’Grady had ever been married, in my mums one happy Easter.

SirGawain Fri 10-Nov-17 12:30:10

You can't argue with stupid!

DamnItall Fri 10-Nov-17 12:31:08

Mega......
I am so jealous

Although I did have to explain once to a friend of a friend that; no unicorns weren't real; and no this wasn't because they'd gone extinct; it was as far as we know at the moment they'd never existed.

She's a teacher

Love the Paul O Grady argument about him not being married.

Paul set up the Christian church after Jesus had died and been resurrected.

Argument has finished with them agreeing to disagree. I think dropping in he was not white would have been funny though. Maybe I could find a way to mention this to my colleague another time?

brasty you simply must find a way to tell colleague Jesus wasn't white. And please record the subsequent argument because we will need the full joy of it transcribed on here. gringringrin

I had a discussion with my 6yo the other day about why Jesus wasn't white. He's convinced he was because that's all you see in the pictures, of course. DS's school isn't supposed to be a religious one, but they do seem to be finding time to fill his head with Jesus somehow hmm

Iris65 Fri 10-Nov-17 12:52:42

Agreeing to disagree. Oh Lord we really have reached the Post Fact Age.

The idea of Jesus being Christian could make my head explode. So He was a follower of Himself then? He would have to be the same person in two different bodies wouldn't he? But Jesus was one person, part of the Trinity. The other two in that Trinity are non-physical, so He cannot be Christian.

This is an image constructed by forensic anthropologists of the most likely physical appearance of Jesus:

Christian means literally "little Christ" or "follower of Christ". So no he wasn't an imitator of himself.

“Love the Paul O Grady argument about him not being married.

Paul O Grady started the Christian Church!!?!shock grin

*He may have started out as Jewish, but in setting up his own religion one can assume he dabbled in Christianity.

Jesus said: (Matthew 16:18) "And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build MY CHURCH*; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it".

Supposedly Jesus said that he will build a church - and that proves that he founded another religion (that worships him as the son of God)? Believe what you want, but please don't try to justify or discuss it in relation to anything to do with facts or logic.

JamesDelayneysTattoos Fri 10-Nov-17 13:00:25

Ooh, we had a discussion at dinner the other day where my Dh won’t have it that Jesus probably wasn’t white. He said it had been proven. 20 yr ds and myself were 😱 Dh said we had to stop discussing as it would end in a rowing 😂

Sergeant gringringrin

Well, he had to do something before his R2 Sunday evening slot! wink

DJBaggySmalls Fri 10-Nov-17 13:02:20

Iris65 thats amazing, where does the image come from?

brasty Fri 10-Nov-17 13:04:46

grin Obviously did not mean to imply that Paul O Grady set up the Christian church. He has changed his careers during his lifetime, but not that drastically.
