I'm a born-again Christian, active member of the body of Christ, husband and father, and Bible teacher. I love to study Scripture, and firmly believe it is the only credible standard for truth.

Aside from my devotion to God, His people, and His word, I don't really have any loyalty to a particular doctrine or creed.

comment Did Jesus commit any sin pertaining to the Sabbath?
@gideonmarx Your reasoning doesn't make any sense... if that were true, why didn't Johanan ben Zakkai change the Hebrew Bible too? Why doesn't the LXX differ drastically from the MT? The post-AD70 changes made the law less stringent (because there was no more temple) -- not more stringent. If anything you should be arguing that what I said is true and then some. Also, how would you know "it was different" if you reject later testimony (like the Bible)? What you are presenting is "revisionist history" and is neither Christian nor scholarly.

comment Did Jesus commit any sin pertaining to the Sabbath?
@gideonmarx That's a bit like saying that we can never know what people in the OT believed because our oldest manuscripts of the TaNaKh are from 600 AD. The Mishnah teaches about the Oral Law, which Jesus frequently refuted according to the New Testament... the NT whose extant manuscripts were written centuries after Jesus' death, btw.
