You know, Jesus was a plagiarist. He stole so many quotes from other people. Didn’t anyone notice?
Kind of a ridiculous comment but a point is still clear, yes they were quotes from others, and yes they did notice. The audience of the day understood the quote, question really is do you? But since He inspired the words then they really are his in the first place 🙂
OK, so like we mentioned in yesterday’s blog post, can you do one without the other? Especially of we want something from God. Compassion, but wait that is a Jesus of the NT thing and not the God of the OT. Or as we have been discussing about consistency, has it really been that way all along. No change, the same every day, all the time.
Wait, if then there is inconsistency could it possibly be us???
