    @David J and @Rival,

    I don't have an argument, but I do have a question? Which of you is going to break the news to the Moslems? I think they're under the impression that Jesus was important enough get mentioned in the Qur'an and that Allah kind of likes him.

    I like Jesus just fine. ;) And I think Allah likes him just fine as well.

    Since I believe the Christian Testament and Qur'an are not G-d-given, it doesn't bother me.

    Thanks Terry.

    I think Jesus is a household name by now.

    But my initial question still holds.

    Still, it would help if you let us know what you had in mind, otherwise, how are we supposed to know? Do you mean where He said "I am the way the truth and the life" or something along the lines of "If I am lifted up I will draw all men unto me"? Or his teachings about turning the other cheek or loving your enemies? "Judge not lest you be judged?" From what direction are you trying to steer the conversation? I'm sure you have something in mind. I think.

    If you don't already know; you didn't get it.

    There were many others, now conveniently
    "forgotten".

    "Eat not, lest thou be eaten"
    "Go not, lest thou be gone."
    "Drink not, lest thou be drunk"

    and more paradoxically

    "Think not, lest thou be thunk"

    That's right, you don't have an argument.

    That is what Matthew 23
    Means, 'Jeesus the instructer'. It's more clear in the Greek, it seems.

    Ok.

    What Did Jesus say that was scientifically, or intellectually astounding for the time period?
