Do you know him?-- John 20:17, Revelation 3:12--1Corinthians 15:24-28
who is he-------there were probably lots of "johns"
But only one savior. Jesus, the Christ.
oh-----but you seem to RELY on the ramblings of many anonymous
characters with the PEN NAME----"john" as evidence thereof.
There is a good reason that "JOHN DOE" acts as john doe in
English-------it is SO COMMON A NAME even in old Israel/Judea-----
in fact, thruout the middle east now. YAHYA ben (?) Yahya
can be very loosely translate as "good-god". There are now even
Irish people named as a permutation of YAHYA----to wit JOHN
We know which John...
But if there were no Johns, Jesus, the Christ, would still be Lord.
try not to use the subjunctive tense in "intellectual" conversation. ----
If there were no johns------which john do you KNOW it was?
While your at it--------who is john's "WHORE OF BABYLON"?----
or that beast with a bunch of heads?
Jesus is alive and well. He trims my citrus fruit trees every winter.
do citrus trees stay ALIVE thru winter? what sort of winter?
As far as "intellectual" conversation, if there were no Johns, there would be no Johns to refer to. Your question is moot. I am referring to the John that Peter referred to and Matthew referred to and so on. The one that Jesus spoke of.
Not so sure that fruit trees are germane to the topic, but to get back on OP track:
Yes, I do know Him and He is wonderful.
And, what's his name told me Jesus said this:
the "JOHN" to which Jesus referred was, as far as I know---JOHN THE BAPTIST. That John got OFFED by Herod-----LIKELY because that john objected to the doings of the Roman shill edomite king and the doings of his questionable household -----the "GOSPELS" written by "JOHN" seem to have been written years later by LIVING
(I assume) "JOHNS" ----"john" wrote the book of Revelations in GREEK-----there is no reason to believe that John the Baptist knew
any greek at all------so it was a different john and done years after john died all full of mystical stuff like Daniel and the Zohar. Daniel wrote,
I believe, in aramaic
