Was the man, commonly known to billions of Christians around the world, as Jesus Christ, part of an extended family?
The Bible itself says he had brothers and sisters.
“Where did this man get this wisdom and these mighty works? Is not this the carpenter’s son? Is not his mother called Mary? And are not his brothers James and Joseph and Simon and Judas? And are not all his sisters with us?” (Matthew 13.54-56).
Some doctrines, try to disguise this knowledge by preaching that these people were only cousins, or Joseph’s from a previous marriage, but Mary, Jesus’ mother, was not an only child.
At the very least, Jesus had cousins, Aunts, and Uncles.
John the Baptist was Jesus’ second cousin according to Luke 1:5-38.
That is also written in your Bible.
You do not even have to question that Jesus and Mary Magdalene were married and had a family, as has often been suggested.
The simple fact is, that Jesus Christ the man, had blood relations, at least on his mother’s side (although the Bible does provide a paternal genealogy for Jesus Christ back to the House of David).
Those people had children.
Their children had children.
Their children’s, children had children.
And it continues to this day.
Modern genetics testing has now also demonstrated that modern-day Palestinians have a direct genetic trail back to those Israelites who’s genealogies fill the pages of the Bible.
So, I would like you to consider this as the situation.
Many of the people living on, and walking around Palestine, Gaza, and the West Bank are the direct blood relatives of Jesus Christ.
Distant relatives I grant you, but still blood relatives.
Over the subsequent 2000 years, it is entirely possible that the vast majority of present day Palestinians are distant relatives of Jesus.
And Israel is killing them.
In their thousands.
And you, as a taxpaying citizen are paying to support a country that is doing this, which should mean you equally share the responsibility wouldn’t it?
As a part of that nation, you are contributing towards the purchase of the very weapons being used to kill the modern descendents of Jesus.
Voting for and electing any Government, in the UK or The United States, whatever colours they may nail to their masts, makes you a countersignatory, therefore also admitting to the world that you are an accessory to murder.
Yet you still believe you are going to get into your heaven?
