He had a penis and it was circumcised.

Absolutely! A bris is a bris. He was a Jew.

I am kinda interested, looking down the sexuality of Jesus as transmitted to us. That he was uncharacteristically kind to women, in a time period that didn’t dig that.

Eastern Orthodox Church

The feast is celebrated with an All-Night Vigil, beginning the evening of December 31. The hymns of the feast are combined with those for Saint Basil the Great. After the Divine Liturgy the next morning, Russian Orthodox churches often celebrate a New Year Molieben (service of intercession) to pray for God’s blessing for the beginning of the civil New Year (Orthodox commemorate the Indiction, or Ecclesiastical New Year, on September 1).

On the Julian calendar, 1 January will correspond, until 2100, to 14 January on the Gregorian Calendar.[6] Accordingly, in Russia, 14 January in the civil calendar is known as “The Old New Year”, since it corresponds to 1 January in the Julian Calendar, still used by the Church.

[edit] Roman Catholic Church

Until the 15th century the Catholic Church celebrated the Circumcision and what is now the Feast of the Holy Name of Jesus together. The emphasis on the latter in the preaching of Saint Bernardino of Siena appears to be the origin of the de-coupling.

This meditation is all about trying to put oneself in Jebus’ shoes as a human being in Judea in the 1st Century. All the slings and arrows.

It’s been fruitful, so far.

He may or may not be the Son of God, but I figure He’d be fun to hang out with.

Up through the 1960s, at least, the Jan 1 feastday for Roman Catholics was definitely “The Circumcision”. Somewhere along the way it got renamed “The Solemnity of Mary”.

I also believe that the “Wedding at Cana” story is about Yeshua’s own wedding.

I am a heretic.

Ah, Vatican 2… So much you added, so much you lost.

Jebus was a feminist. I’mma gonna state that now.

So, we may have god genes?

Prolly.

If 80% of Euro-people come from Charlemagne, I’ll bet a similar number/percentage comes from the child born of Jebus and Mary “Go-Go Dancer” Magdalene.

Gospel according to Andrew LLoyd Webber.

HERETIC ALERT: I think Jebus had sexytimes with both Martha and Mary.

re: #14 chadu

Prolly not at the same time, though.

I could be wrong; maybe they were into it.

(I am SO going to Hell.)

re: #13 Decatur Deb

This is me showing off a classical education - but many forget the Greek word “hero” meant many things not linked to warfare. It means someone who does a great thing.

The Greeks considered someone a hero if he paid for a symposium (a drinking party with wine) out of his own money. I take the “Wedding of Cana” to mean that Jesus used his own money to buy wine for the wedding party and since the region was Hellenized at the time it was an acclaimed act. Literally turning the water into wine. Over time this heroic act of generosity (again using the Greek cultural reference) became a tale of a miracle.

That is really interesting. Thank you.

Would have never compared the “Wedding of Cana” vs. the Symposium.

Fertile fields of thought.

Thank you!
