    Well, they don't call it the "Incarnation" for nothing. He was God in the meat, which is by definition carnal.

    And should he have been if he wasn't?
    He is a figure of myth. He can be anything we want him to be. But what we want him to be reveals us to ourselves.

    And we are revealed as misogynist.

    If you consider only adultery is mentioned in the ten commandments and only once, it kind of gives an impression of how balanced a view of sexuality there was. I dont see him as having had much of an opportunity to be a thief or anythng else either, he fufilled most of the commandments in a positive sense throughout his ministry.

    You guys keep talking as if the idea of him being single is fact. You don't know that.

    Yes, the myth teaches that the Father was offended by us and in order to forgive us, he tortured His Son to death.

    This is blood sacrifice to appease an angry God.

    Might or might not have been, James could have been his brother and James and a couple of other members of he 12 apostles could have been married. I dont see how this is controversial.

    ... isn't anger one of the deadly sins?

    and didn't jesus pitch a fit and toss the moneylenders out of the temple?

    I dunno, but it doesn't seem that Jesus was completely without sin

    Unless you consider it being a clean slate whenever he prayed for forgiveness, but by that definition John Gotti died without sin

    You guys keep talking as though a myth were literally true.

    If he was, it would have been explicitly stated, don't you think? I mean, the point of the Bible is to show how God's purpose for mankind is to be fulfilled through Jesus.

    Then there's the evidence that he was a single man, including him not having a permanent residence, and, as he lay on the torture stake dying, the woman he ensured care for was his mother- who was a widow at that point, and not a wife and kids.
