    If Jesus arrived for the first time on earth today (no Christianity, no Vatican, no Pope, since he has not been here yet)

    what country would he be born in?
    Immaculate conception?
    stable/manger birth?
    would he blog? how would he spread his message?
    how would he die to take away our sins?

    Basically, relate the Gospels to today's world.

    What do you mean if Jesus lived today?

    If Jesus Christ is not alive today than there is no meaning to anyone's life.

    If you doubt than tell me what it would be ?

    Jesus resurrected from the dead and can be known today. I mean today.

    If He isn't the living Lord and Savior eat, drink, be merry for tomorrow you die. There is nothing else.

    OMG I'm converted! I believe you!

    just kidding, better luck next time I guess.

    how about my last challenge. Relate the Gospels to today's world. How would the stoning of Mary Mag play out? Would Jesus still feed the masses with 2 fish and 5 loaves?

    I was thinking fish sticks. Not 4, 8. Definitely 8 fish sticks.

    Nope. There is a lot more than that even though he isn't the living lord nor is he a savior.

    why do you think if he was born now he would be anywhere other than gods land that the scripture would have to be as the prophets foretold.
    . tho his life death and life would be on tv

    He'd probably be shot by a nut with 'catcher in the rhye' in his pocket.

    Well he probably wasn't born in Bethlehem, no reason why he should be this time around either. There is some argument as to whether he was actually born at the time of a census and I gather that Roman cesus's (censi?) did not require people to return to their ancestral home.

    He was very unlikely to have been born of a virgin, I think that was chucked in in order to make the story fit a prophesy.

    There are far fewer stables and mangers today, so that is less likely than it was back then. Don't know if it really did happen like that of course.

    Probably via the InterWebNet. YouTube maybe?

    I like the Aids hypothesis, though maybe he would strap on a suicide belt...

    Gospels, hmm, I must read them sometime.

    Every time I look at you I don't understand
    Why you let the things you did get so out of hand.
    You'd have managed better if you'd had it planned.
    Why'd you choose such a backward time in such a strange land?
    If you'd come today you could have reached a whole nation.
    Israel in 4 BC had no mass communication.
    Don't you get me wrong.
    I only want to know.

    If Jesus lived today he would probably be a rabbi belonging to the reformist denomination.

    A Reform neo-Hasid perhaps? A Baal Shem Tov in blue jeans?

    If the prophecies fortold of the birth of the savior in our time, it would occur as recorded in the prophecies.

    If the time of his coming had been our time, I suspect he would have been born of the house of David, in Bethlehem, of a virgin, to teach his gospel to all the world before being unjustly executed for being the Son of God. Pretty much all the same things but a different year.

    You folks just don't get it. It happened. It is true. Live it before it is too late.
