    The Bible's word for donkey gets starred-out, but the monk's word for horn doesn't. :rolleyes:

    notes to your notes: Zechariah is future-tense. It runs parallel to Daniel and Revelation?

    Jesus says that the Holy Spirit will (1) remind His sheep what Jesus said and (2) tell His sheep what Jesus meant.

    The book of Revelation is only open to those who keep/do the words of Jesus, in order to have access to the Holy Spirit in His role as Interpreter.

    Are you sure your star of David isn't actually the 6-pointed star of Solomon? The kingdom was ripped out of Solomon's hand, via his son. And the Prophet says that 10-north-Israel is a repurposed vessel... but that Judah lies smashed and will never be reformed.

    In addition, many people have worshipped the sun, and used the sun-wheel as its symbol. It's only Germanophobia that keeps Northerners from using it, these superficially-darkened days. TGFTI!

    You're right.. It isn't rocket science. the Ugaritic Tablets are 1500 years older than the "Jews".. and the Jews borrowed from them liberally.

    Actually, Revelation is only open to those who have studied first century history and the symbolism used in those days. Its a letter written to the 7 Jewish congregations about what was happening and what would happen soon.

    Daniel is fiction. He never existed and his "prophecy" ends during the Maccabean Revolt in 165 BC. Its about Antiochus IV Epiphanes. Daniel is NOT considered a prophet in Judaism... for good reason.

    Zacharia lived 6 centuries before Jesus..

    Zechariah 9:9 was fulfilled when the Jewish people celebrated with palm branches the restoration and re-consecration of the Temple by Judas Maccabees during the Maccabean Wars of the second century B.C.

    People seem to be skipping over the Letters to the Seven Churches of Asia.

    Revelation 2:9 "I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and [I know] the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but [are] the synagogue of Satan."

    Revelation 3:9 "Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee."


    Matthew 27:25 "Then answered all the people, and said, His blood [be] on us, and on our children."

    John 8:44 "Ye are of [your] father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it."

    Jesus said that to the Jews who claimed to believe on Him; but they weren't his disciples because they didn't continue with Him. Faith without works is dead... especially when good works get replaced with murder and lies and blasphemies of the Holy Spirit... both the Pharisees and the Jews did that.

    In the first century the Jews were fractured.. with one group calling the other collaborators or apostates or Hellenized. They were fighting each other and the Romans.. Titus was having an affair with Herod's granddaughter so the play on words was Whore of Babylon.

    Then you've chosen Judaism over the words of Jesus.

    Matthew 24:15 "When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place,"

    The pot calling the kettle black, since they openly tell us they are the Greeks.

    Daniel was not a prophet.. There was no Daniel.. Whoever the authors were they told a screwed up history of Babylon.. and in 165 BC as a way of encouraging the Jews they wrote about the Abomination of Desolation Antiochus IV Epiphanes.

    Borrowed = Copied the writings of the lands they invaded and signed their name to it.

    Invaded, except in the case of Sumer, which brought writing into Akkadian Babylon.

    What? Are you talking about the Greek cities of the Decapolis or the Jews who lived round about Galilee? You do know about the Decapolis, don't you? They were prosperous so were the Jews in the North.. That's one reason the Jerusalem Jews hated them.

    Who are you claiming they invaded? Abraham's warlord years are covered in Genesis 14.

    You don't believe Jesus, sooda. It is as simple as that.
    Jesus never encouraged the Jews; in fact, Matthew and John both show the opposite.

    The Book of Daniel is a fiction from start to finish.. Its based on a popular character named Dan'el from a Canaanite poem 1500 years earlier in Syria.

    Jesus certainly didn't write it.

    Jesus quoted it.
    You say it never existed.
    One of these things isn't true.

    Who said Jesus quoted it?

    Daniel was a complete fiction written by many Jewish authors over a long period of time. In the last addition they were encouraging the Jews during the abomination of Antiochus IV and the Maccabean Revolt.

    Matthew 24:15 So when you see standing in the holy place ‘the abomination that causes desolation,’ as was spoken of through the prophet Daniel—let the reader understand—

    See Daniel 11:31
