Happy Easter Padre, keep spreading the word. You're doing a good job!

He is? Then why is he still hanging on
millions of crosses around the world.
Every Catholic church you go into,
there he is, up on that cross.

Ever see a sports trophy? They depict
the athlete winning, that's what he
won for the trophy , not just participating.
Jesus on the cross makes no sense, if he's
risen depict him that way. He obviously
hasn't, you're still waiting.

I went grocery shopping since I needed food for the feral cats. I gave them an 'extra meal' today. Perhaps that is a celebration of Easter, perhaps its not. Anyway the females were rather few in the store but they were all nicely dressed so perhaps that is there way of celebrating Easter. Mine was to feed feral cats and chat on facebook with a depressed victim (at age nine0 of a pedophile. Should I say Happy Easter? Well the checkout clerk wished me a Happy Easter, so returned the wishes rather than say anything about its all a crock. I don't think I was 'religious' to her, just polite.

That is exactly what Christ is doing on the cross.

Rising from the dead is his claim to fame.
Over a hundred thousand died on the
cross, it's hardly an oddity. It was very
common in those days to see a field
with half a dozen crosses in them.
Jesus supposedly rising and walking
around, that's what should be depicted
when you enter a church.

And I hope you celebrated all those
Jewish saints dead for hundreds of
years that came out of their graves
and tombs when Jesus rose. They
walked around and people were
amazed. How come we never hear
about them. There are lots of logical
reasons Jesus could have woken up
3 days later. Some saint that died
400 years before, that's the miracle.

Jesus rising from the dead is the proof of His Divinity. Jesus dying on the cross for us is the proof of His love.

So what was all the Jewish saints rising proof of?
It must have happened, it's right there in the
NT. Are they divine too? This had to be a big
deal, far bigger for the Jews than Jesus walking
around 3 days later.

(I don't expect a cogent answer, Christians
do NOT want to discuss this, they usually
clam right up when I mention it.)

You have always had a very hard time differentiating fact from legend and mythical language.
