Thoughts on this?  "And with that, he was gone, leaving more questions than answers…" Isn't that the way life is? Allows us to grow.

I'd ask:  "now that we're Q&Aing, what's your frank opinion of the Nicene Creed ?".


I'd also ask about Jesus' perceptions of "Real Presence" and "Afterlife".  


Figuring that I've said enough, I'd sit back and sip my coffee contentedly and ponder wow ! I just had an interview with Jesus.  That's really big time.  I would also wonder where He learned to speak English --- or how I suddenly became fluent in Aramaic. Smile

I would ask Jesus -- is belief that you are/were God incarnate required in order to be saved and not go to Hell?


And speaking of Hell, is there a Hell?  Is there a Satan?

I would ask him why, for the last 2000 years, we haven't had any tangible manifestations of his presence, and God's, as in days of yore; the burning bush, the booming voice from heaven, the incarnation.  Somehow the occasional piece of burnt toast with his image, his mother's appearance in an oil slick on the floor of a Jiffy Lube in South Texas, and the rainbow just doesn't seem to be, at times, enough.

I'm sure one would want to ask him if the tangible manifestations recorded in the Bible were real, as in where they really tangible manifestations or simply myths and stories that had great meaning to the authors.

Are you suggesting that a chorus of trumpets and trombones could not cause the walls of Jericho to come a-tumbling' down?

I'd ask him if he died to convict and deliver us from sin?  ....And he'd probably say, "I died trying to show you how to LIVE!"

We must find that within, Jim  ...to be able to see it without.  It's not that it isn't there; it's that the veil clouds our thoghts and we cannot perceive what's under our nose all along.
