In the Book of Daniel 9:24-27 seven seventies are decreed:
"Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy."
Interestingly Jesus refers to seven seventies when asked how many times we should forgive someone.
"Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall...
Which God is truthful?
This is an internal subject of the believers from which-ever God/gods they select for themselves on their own choice and responsibility.
Dawkins and the like are sure laymen on Revealed Religion or God. Please
The believers of Revealed Religions consider the non-revealed religions, with the same group Atheism or the like, as superstitious, denying reality/Truth.
Unless of course if they justify their "no-god"/many gods position/no-position with positive and reasonable...
This is essentially a question about the historical Jesus.
I find that I'm quite fascinated by the figure of Jesus. I adored him when I was Christian, and I still have a lingering affection for him to this day. Jesus was a groovy fellow, and in general I dig him a lot.

The Gospel of Thomas tells us that Jesus' birth was NOT a miraculous virgin birth and that...
Are you a divine being?*
By your very ability to answer the question I would argue yes. I think people are a whole lot more than they sometimes give themselves credit for. Let us appreciate our individuality regardless of beliefs, and try to work together to accomplish our respective goals. We have all been granted the incredible gift of consciousness and our own will, with the inherent trust that we can be responsible in our explorations of this wonderful...
Imagine a non-Christian trying to learn about Christianity, and then they come across this video:
And you wonder why people laugh at Christianity. Charlatans like this "pastor" make a mockery out of the religion.
Then there is this guy:
Incidentally, Jeremiah Cummings tried to sue Lionsgate Entertainment, claiming that the movie Religulous ruined his life and drove him to poverty. Apparently after being exposed, numerous people sued him and sought monetary damages. Cummings eventually...
In Jesus' final sermon on the Mount of Olives He refers to the "abomination of desolation"
"When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand)
Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:"
What does this mean?
