John11, A-men: What Jesus says is Truth, and much higher than any contrary comments posted from dissers.
---Eloy on 7/12/11


John11...Please read my post to Eloy concerning this claim.
---John on 7/12/11


Yes of course, Jesus was just a human, and humans get sick. He got sick and the proof is from what Jesus said: "for I was sick, and you all visited me."
---John11 on 7/12/11


John, I agree with you that Jesus did not get sick. In my studies of Jesus I find that the humanity of Christ is evident first of all in the fact that He possessed a true human body composed of flesh, and blood. It was like the bodies of other men "except for those qualities which have resulted from human sin and failure." Jesus advanced in knowledge and Wisdom. He bodily growth was normal of that of other children. He experienced in His life similar feelings and limitations as other human beings, He was able to suffer pain, thirst, hunger, fatigue, pleasure, rest, death and resurrection. He could be seen and felt, and His human body was tangible to human touch just as other human beings.
---Mark_V. on 7/12/11


JamesL, Its not a point about the Jews being right or wrong. It was the point of Jesus being The Christ.

One of the criterias used by Judism would have been if he was sick, then he had sin. Jesus would have not allowed that.

It is the meaning of this passage..

Matt9:6
"But so that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins "-- then He said to the paralytic, "Get up, pick up your bed and go home."
---John on 7/11/11




John,

---James_L on 7/11/11


JamesL, you missed the point of my posts. It might have gone over your head.

Please study them.
---John on 7/11/11


Jesus lived a pure and holy life. His behavior was totally righteous... all the more remarkable, because He was fully human.

He suffered temptation but resisted it. I believe he resisted sickness (not that He was physically immune from it) because He could not have reached the Jews otherwise.
He submitted willingly to the bloody torture and death on the cross. Men needed to see His suffering in all its painful reality, to appreciate His sacrifice.
---Donna66 on 7/11/11


John, I have listened to him for years. He is very knowledgable in many areas. But not in interpretations or for that matter Hermeneutics as a whole. He uses the Bible Code sometimes, I've a book on that so I can tell. I don't believe he can discern between a metaphor and a parable, law from grace, and most important, salvation. He says he is a prophet, and a preacher without a church. And most of all sinless. He does make a lot of remarks that are damaging to others also. But still love him, and have been trying to make out who he really is. He is hard and cold, but a few times he amazes me, and says some kind words to some who needs prayer. There is something good within him hidding.

\\Disease was considered a result of sin by the Jews\\
---John on 7/9/11

Jesus Himself dispelled this myth in John 9:1-3



\\If Jesus was at anytime sick, it would have given absolute proof that he was not The Christ\\
---John on 7/9/11

Sort of Like when Jesus said that the Jews had eyes but couldn't see, and ears but couldn't hear (Mark 8:18)

Jesus was NOTHING like what the Jews were looking for. From the wrong side of the tracks, lowly upbringing, suffering servant, and most probably sick a time or two.

"He was made like His brothers in EVERY aspect...(Heb 2:17)
---James_L on 7/11/11




MarkV,
I'm afraid I agree with Cluny when it comes to Eloys "Knowledge".
---John on 7/11/11


\\I find that he is very knowledgable,\\

On what?

He doesn't know Greek. He doesn't know Hebrew. He can't even use ENGLISH properly.

Glory to Jesus Christ!
---Cluny on 7/11/11


Richard, perfect and holy people get sick sometimes and also die, and are resurrected. Jesus says: "for I was sick, and you all visited me." "For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted likewise, without sinning." Mt.25:36+ Hb.4:15.
---Eloy on 7/11/11


John, many times I too want to shout at someone, but it will not do any good. One thing I know about Eloy, is that he does not stand for any denomination which is great. What he says he does believe. I find that he is very knowledgable, but very much against much of Scripture when it comes to many interpretations. I believe he is convinced one way only and nothing will change his view. I keep answering him in the event that God uses that Truth to change that view. If he would only use the context to every passage and never change the character, nature and attributes of God at the expense of his theology he would be able to understand Scripture better. I know I cannot change anyone. Only the Truth can do that.
---Mark_V. on 7/11/11


\\Yes, Jesus was 100% man and did die - only because He had to so He could erase our sins and bring us back into right standing with God.\\

Wrong again, Leslie.

Jesus, being fully God, was totally free, and did not have to do anything.

He FREELY died. As He Himself said, "No one takes My life. I give it."

This is how He CHOSE to do things. He might well have done things another way had He seen fit to do so.

Glory to Jesus Christ!
---Cluny on 7/10/11


I agree Donna66. I mean if he is The Christ, Then there can't be 90% it would need to be 100% G-d or nothing.

Jesus says: "for I was sick, and you all visited me." "For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted likewise, without sinning." Mt.25:36+ Hb.4:15.
---Eloy on 7/10/11


John---//Disease was considered a result of sin by the Jews//
Excellent point! I didn't believe He was ever sick, but you've convinced me!
If He had been sick at any time it would have actually disproved to The Jews, that He was Messiah.

In fact, I believe His healing of the "man born blind" was meant, among other things, to prove that He was Messiah. The Jews believed nobody could heal a man "born blind" because, as you said, they attributed this to sin, either his or his parents.

There had been "healers" (maybe witches or occult practitioners), but the scripture says, none had ever healed a man born blind. Jesus was showing that He could reverse illness, and by extension, sin.

Thanks MarkV!

Thanks Alan, but I really did want to yell at Eloy this time. He was way out of line with scripture.

But I am reframing from shouting,
---John on 7/10/11


Jesus never fell sick, I would have wanted to know why the enquirer asked the question.
Surely, aurguing about this serves nor purposes.

And Eloy is quoting this out of context, unless he wants to say Jesus fell sick indirectly. But thats not the question at hand.

John, thank you for explaining the passage very well to Eloy. Now, that's how you should answer, with an explanation from Scripture. Alan is correct, and I'm sure you could be of great help if you use the ability God has given you to teach the Truth. That is what is important to all of us. I'm glad I did not answer Eloy, and was going to but you did a great job. Peace I leave you.
---Mark_V. on 7/10/11


ELOY, When YAHUSHUA said "When I was sick, you visited Me..." He was talking about people in general who were in need. Whatever we, as a Church, do unto people in need, we, in essence, do it unto to CHRIST. But, it's not really HIM that we are showing comfort or help, not directly. But, to show Love to others who are down-and-out, and to show that Love in the name of YAHUSHUA, is just as valid as if we WERE doing so toward Christ YAHUSHUA Himself. And, the "weaknesses" of Hebrews 4:15 refers to the Temptations of the flesh to commit sin. YAHUSHUA was tempted by the Enemy to give in to sin, as we are, though He never did sin. So, the Scripture you quoted does not back up that YAHUSHUA ever got sick.

Your reply is in fact convoluted and not relevant.

Being Earthly you equate a mortal man to Christ.\\

First, John, you have to understand that spiritual things are spiritually discerned.

Next, if you could read, you would see that in my first comment here, I said that sickness if the result of sin, so I don't think Jesus suffered sickness, though He did suffer the non-culpable weaknesses and limitations of being a human.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

Jesus says: "for I was sick, and you all visited me." Eloy on 7/9/11

WOW! Totally distorted and out of context Eloy. SICK!
Jesus was telling a story(Parable) about the King(G-D THE FATHER/NOT JESUS!).

AND IT CONTINUED...

MATT:25:31

When did we ever see you sick?

And the King answered...
Truly I say to the extent you did this to one of these brothers, you did it to me.

An occasional word in caps for emphasis is fine, colors are probably used to make scripture verses stand out from the rest of the post. Marquees may attract a readers attention (one can only guess that's the reason for their use).Otherwise, caps are considered by most bloggers and e-mailers the same as shouting. (I have been known to shout occasionally, myself, rarely.) But it is not more convincing than ordinary type.

John, Why do you shout?
(write in caps.)

I agree with you about sickness--not necessarily injury. But why so accusatory to those who disagree with you? It this how you normally "teach"?

I believe Jesus was 100% God and also 100% man...not 100% God and 2...50...or 90% man. The Bible says He was tempted in all points as are we, yet without sin. He lived a perfectly holy life.

As usual Cluny my statements fly above your understanding!
Your reply is in fact convoluted and not relevant.

Being Earthly you equate a mortal man to Christ.

So let me explain it in your earth bound parameters.

A god who is perfect and can walk on water, feed 5000, manipulate nature at a word.

CREATED THE ENTIRE UNIVERSE!

Will also have the ability to defend himself against Bacteria and viruses which He himself created.

He would not have accidents since he knows all things in advance and is aware of them. So he would not trip. (Imperfection).

An Oncologists does not possess these attributes. He is merely mortal.


---John on 7/9/11


\\THE OXYMORON...
The Christ(G-d in flesh) with the ability to Heal ALL and a perfect body could not heal himself or became vulnerable to attacks by bacteria and viruses.PLEEZZ!\\

First off, this is not an oxymoron. An oxymoron is a very short contradictory phrase like "neat garbage."

Next, one might as well say an oncologist must have cancer himself in order to treat it successfully. As we all know, this is a foolish statement.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

WRONG!!!

Disease was considered a result of sin by the Jews(true, but too advance to explain here)

If Jesus was at anytime sick, it would have given absolute proof that he was not The Christ and he would not have any followers. It would be in the Talmud/Mishnah/Gamara.

Bruce5656, Right. But, "relieving oneself" is not on par with sicknesses, illnesses and diseases. Relieving oneself is a natural, HEALTHY, normal bodily function that MUST take place. It is a POSITIVE and healthy function. Whereas, Sicknesses are a negative thing. Illnesses and symptoms are a sign that something is WRONG. So, you'll have to use a better suitable and applicable analogy to validate your point.

The bible does not tellus that Jesus got sick or not. We know based on the prophecies that could not have had any proken bones.

But Jesus was subject to human frainity.

He got tired
He got sleepy
He had emotions
He felt pain

The only known disease which Jesus had was Hematidrosis (also called hematohidrosis) is a very rare condition in which a human being sweats blood,

John--
Hbr 5:8 Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered,

There are many ordinary (and I'm sure minor) things about Jesus that Scripture never bothers to tell us.

Do you think the Child Jesus never touched an object hot enough to burn? Never ate too much or the wrong thing? Never tried to do something beyond his ability (like use his father's tools) Never fell off the family donkey?
If He did, would that make Him less than perfect?

We ALL learn obedience by the things we suffer...or does that mean only psychological suffering.
---Donna66 on 7/9/11


I WILL EXPLAIN THE CONFUSION HERE...

Jesus was never ever sick or was injured.

Why???

Because he was perfect man/G-d. By definition Perfect means 100%. No Illness/injuries.

G-d does not trip or get sick!

SO WHAT HAPPENED IN THE PASSION?

Christ tell us(REF: Satan)...

Luke:2:53
"This is your hour and the power of Darkness is yours!"

G-d gave authority to Satan to fulfill Scripture. It was his hour.

Mark:14:49.."but this has taken place to fulfill the Scriptures."

Matt:26:54 "How then will the Scriptures be fulfill, which say it must happen this way."
---John on 7/8/11


In English we give attention to nouns primarily, with 6 different positions in a sentence.
Hebrew is more focus on verbage, the action taking place.
The Word, yes, but the Word brought forth and revealed.
'Acquainted' being the action in regards to 'grief'.
Hebrew 'yadah' translated know, acknowledge, perceive, declare, consider.
His compassion, sympathy, and empathy provided the means by which He was 'aquainted with grief(sickness)'.
As Eloy has quoted in part...
Mat 25:40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done [it] unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done [it] unto me.

Gordon,
"But, as far as the everyday, common colds, sicknesses and diseases that people have..? There is no Biblical indication He experienced those."

This proves nothing. We are not expressly told he releived himself (not to put too fine a point on it) but who would question that what he ate had to come out eventually. So, just because we are not told he did or did not do somethign or did or did not experience something (a cold for example) does not prove anything.

Josef, YAHUSHUA bore our infirmities and sorrows in that He took away our infirmities by virtue of His Atoning Sacrifice. Going through the sufferings of being abused and crucified for us, so that our SINS, infirmities and griefs may be taken away from us to obtain True Life in HIM. Sicknesses are one result of poor nutrition, too. It may be that He experienced a sickness as a result of the physical abuse and emotional/mental stress from grief He experienced while being abused and crucified. But, even then, He was spiritually strong and prepared for those sufferings to endure them victoriously. But, as far as the everyday, common colds, sicknesses and diseases that people have..? There is no Biblical indication He experienced those.

Josef, you have good posts and I don't recall you knowingly misuse God's Word.
I would like to put Matt 8:17 in context to show that it was talking about healing the sick, not being sick.
Mat 8:14 And when Jesus was come into Peter's house, he saw his wife's mother laid, and sick of a fever. And he touched her hand, and the fever left her: and she arose, and ministered unto them. When the even was come, they brought unto him many that were possessed with devils: and he cast out the spirits with [his] word, and healed all that were sick: That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare [our] sicknesses.
This does not disprove your belief in His health.

---Donna66 on 7/7/11

Like I think you mentioned in an earlier blog, I've been hurt at churches that preached this.

I WAS told that I was "living in SIN" if I needed to ask for prayer for getting over a cold.

I've sinced discovered that proper nutrition -- which my own Mother tried to teach me about -- can be very helpful in AVOIDING colds in the first place.

We must keep in mind that Satan is working hard to destroy whoever is living for GOD. Sickness is one of Satan's tools. Pastors, Leaders, and their families, are often targeted by Satan. I've seen major sicknesses in those families.

---Christina on 7/7/11


We simply suffer from a lack of definitive information about the early life of Christ prior to starting his ministry. The subject of Christ health was not a subject of concern to contemporary authors who wrote about Christ as eye witness observers. It is what Christ did from the start of his ministry forward through his crucifixion, resurrection and ascension. Christ brother James does not discuss it. We know that Christ felt the whole range of human emotions, pain, thirst, hunger, weariness, anger, rage, agape love, sadness, joy. The importance of Christ was what he taught and accomplished, paying the price for God's chosen elect to move into the family of God with Christ as their brother.

Sickness entered the word because of sin, so did crime. But being mugged does not indicate YOU are a sinner.

I have to agree with Cluny about the sin nature. We now have or will have, both possible, according to Peter a divine/God nature which means a nature prior to it existed. Our sin nature or nature to sin is inherited from Adam while the divine or Godlike nature,the nature to be like God, is inherited through Jesus Christ.

Please consider this carefully:

I have mixed thoughts as I read this question.

It is POSSIBLE that Jesus never got sick, depressed, etc. However, that would only be POSSIBLE in a PERFECT world. The world we live in was only that way BEFORE sin entered when Adam & Eve ate the forbidden fruit. Jesus came to this world as a fleshly, human being. Just like the rest of us. Therefore, Jesus POSSIBLY did get sick, etc.

I try not to associate with folks who claim that Christians should NEVER get sick. Not that we want to. But we live in an IMPERFECT world. I've been mocked, in Protestant church healing services, for asking for prayer for the common cold.

Meanwhile, WHY did my older Christian friends DIE from: Cancer, Heart Failure, Diabetes, etc.?

The Bible says that Jesus is God and God is spirit and spirit can NOT get sick or die. Even when He was a man on Earth, Jesus did NOT get sick, because He is God.

If the argument that Jesus could not have gotten sick because sickness was the result of sin entering the world, then one would have to take the stand that, Jesus was not capable of aging (clearly he did) or dying (thankfully he did). However, more to the point, that he was not capable of dying a mortal death and that if it were not for his sacrificial death, he would have lived forever.

I believe that Jesus was fully human in every way I am. The only difference between him and you or I was that he did not have a sin nature. God IN THE FLESH.

Yes, Jesus says, "for I was naked, and you all clothed me, I was sick, and you all visited me, I was in prison, and you all came to me." For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted likewise, without sinning. Mt.25:36+ Hb.4:15.

Yes, and He also had bones and blood. He could break a bone or bruise or cut himself. We don't know if He ever did...but we know it was possible. It's hard to imagine any childhood without an incident or two like this.
I personally doubt He ever had an infection, though. He succeeded in resisting Satan's temptation. So I imagine He would resist disease.
