revised Were the Jews expecting the Messiah to suffer at all?
Typo. Great answer.

comment Difference between Gospel and Bible
Can you provide a reference for your statement that Luke "knew [Jesus] personally?" Calvin, Henry, Clarke -- and many more -- all taught otherwise. See Luke 1:1-4. But maybe you mean "knew" in a "spiritual" sense.

comment How does mainstream Christianity view “Heaven is for Real”?
Hah! That's great -- and notice that I called it a "reasonably intelligible," not "great" question! FWIW, I think you're doing a good job. The speed with which you seem to be learning about Christianity is impressive and encouraging. Cheers.

comment Why did God need to plant the tree of knowledge of good and evil in the garden of Eden in the first place?
Being both worthy of and desirous of glory does not make God "selfish," if one believes that obedience to God is what is truly best for man. Further reading from this perspective, courtesy of John Piper's ministry: 1, 2, 3.

comment How does mainstream Christianity view “Heaven is for Real”?
@Caleb: I disagree; I think the original question was not "all over the place." It's probably not the most concise wording, and the formatting could use some work, but I found it reasonably intelligible. Over the space of just a week or two, the OP seems to be investing noticeably greater effort in crafting questions, and should be commended, not rebuked.

I'm not sure; that's why I'm looking in the Bible and asking among a group of people that describe themselves as "experts," in order to avoid the emotion-laden, self-important vitriol that is often provided by people that call themselves "Christians."

Interesting. Is there any record of him appearing in more than one location at the same time?

@Matt: I wrote the title as an attention grabber and intended it to elicit response -- and apparently, from the number of comments, I succeeded. As for what you're calling "fluff," from an analytical perspective, it's important for a question that defies a simple, rote answer to provide context, in order to encourage responses that are focused.

+1. Great answer, thank you. Do you know if the Bible says whether Christ will exist in a resurrected body, the way I think it says believers will? If so, would that prevent him from being in more than one place at a time? Maybe I should add that to the question.

@DavidS: The sharp contrast of the disposition evinced by your comments, on the one hand, and what can be expected from Christ, on the other, provides a remarkable example of the behavior referenced in the first sentence of the question, making things even more clear. Thanks for that. 2 Timothy 2.
