In the first christian communities it was a requirement to be Jewish. When did this change? When did they abandon this archaic teaching and turn to the true teachings of Christ that allow ANYONE to become a Christian. What early community accurately followed Christ's example?
The Jews realized yeshua ha-notzri wasn't their Messiah. The book of acts even goes into their rejection of pauls teachings after the hype of "the Messiah is here!" had ended.
Paul then decided it was time to incorporate the gentiles into the fold, because people who don't know anything about Jewish scripture can't really argue about him being Messiah or not.
this is a very sexy image
yeshua is blushing, hands already bound and skin exposed for pilate, who gazes at his beautiful chest. pilate's open legs and loosely clenched right hand betray his arousal, and you can see he has wine standing ready beside him.
8/10 would fap to
You mean righteous gentiles who honoured God in all things but in the depths of the Law?
Do you know who else Jesus preached to? Samaritans.
If they weren't already in love with yahouwahou then he didn't deal with them.
I wouldn't argue for that, maybe, but it seems like something really difficult to make up and convince people OF THE DAY that it happened. I have no doubts paul engineered modern Christianity though.
>but it seems like something really difficult
Modern day cults do it all the time. Look at scientology. From nutball to global force in less than a generation.
Maybe cristianity is just a cult run amok
by Romans, when they realized they could use Christianity to pacify the glorious manly tribes of the Celts and Germanic peoples
instead of murder and pillage with an erection, they now sent telepathic messages to a dead Jew
