comment What does Jesus's life from the Bible tell us about the kind of diet he had. Did he promote any particular kind of diet?
from a purely speculative view point unless the proliferation of animals along with the proliferation of man were somehow checked and all continued to eat vegetation, there would eventually come a point at which man and animals would compete for food.

comment What was the normal way to cross the Jordan River during first century in Israel?
@Andrew (continued) Even I can remember a time when there was no TV and we were in awe od the new electric fan that could cool you down like a Summer evening breeze, but now I'm telling my age. Things were much different than what we take for advantage today. Had someone tried to explain how we could get on a computer and talk to someone in another Country in real time, when I was a teenager they would have been laughed at. Many things such as travel in a machine would be laughed at in that society. Hermeneutics take those things into account.

comment What was the normal way to cross the Jordan River during first century in Israel?
@Andrew The ways and customs of those days were very different from today. Time was not of the essence as it is today, they thought nothing of having to wait days or even longer for the water to subside. They simply understood that there were things over which they had no control as opposed to today where we find a way to overcome our difficulties. The attitude that we can overcome nature is an attitude not spawned until the twentieth Century. All climate control has been developed since the 1900's. (continued)

comment How are the broken bones in the Shroud of Turin seen to be consistent with the bones of Jesus not being broken?
There are many other reasons for the knee to be swollen, and that is especially true for Jesus. It is fairly certain that the Roman soldiers were less than gentle with him, and at one point he was smote and asked to identify his assailant even though blindfolded. Also he fell under the weight of the cross, that is why Simon was inducted to help him, perhaps his knee was damaged then. swelling would have been normal. As to the authenticity of the Shroud itself its validation should have no effect on faith in Jesus. That's my thoughts.

This question may be better asked on Hermeneutics SE.

comment What is the name of the belief that each of us is guilty for the sins of our neighbors?
That's a pretty long reach, since Jesus did not ever insinuate that we would commit a sin if we did not correct another even other Christians which we are to correct.

Your question is not a good fit for this site for all of the reasons stated by curiousdanni, along with other comments here. My reason for saying it is not a good fit is because the idea that we are responsible for the sins of others is a completely foreign notion to me, and we need something to tell us why such an idea which is contrary to the Bible who and where it is espoused.

Are you asking about the English language or any language? At any rate your question is not a good fit for this site.

comment God's role after judgement day?
Your question appears to indicate that God exists for the edification of man (does man need a God). There are two major problems with that in that man exists for the edification of God (the Creator). The second part of your question which is troublesome is that it could also have been asked as to: (was God necessary before he created man?). Basically the problem with your question lies in the fact that it questions Gods necessity when the true question is man necessary for God or Why did God create man. Both of these are unanswerable questions other than as an opinion.
