    Nope. The messiah was a great and powerful man, either a king, a priest, a warrior or a combination of the three who would lead the Jewish people to victory, kick the invaders out of Israel and be a great leader all his days. The messiah was never once portrayed in the OT as someone who'd get his arse handed to him by his enemies, be totally humiliated and murdered.

    It's a different message, not even 'basically' the same.


      And one can love a person, and yet also hate their behavior, for we do not state that child molesters and murderers and others of that ilk have to have their actions condoned, right?

    Then why on Earth are characters like Abraham and Moses so revered? Just looking at the stories of those two men you can find instances where they commit, condone, or cause to be committed acts of child abuse, murder, rape, slavery, misogyny, homophobia and last but by no means least...genocide.

    These characters should be reviled.

I find it highly amusing that you know the Bible far better than JesusFan.
