Who Was the First Palestinian/Jewish/Christian?

Reading an article how Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Pope Francis were bickering over which language Jesus spoke, I couldn’t help but think of the irony.

Netanyahu, not a Christian, insisted the Lord spoke Hebrew (a Bible language).

The Pope, not a Muslim, insisted Jesus spoke Aramaic (an early Arab dialect).

Does anyone else see the humor in this?

Check out the title of this map too, from a New Testament publishing company.

When you take a look at the big picture, Jesus actually was all three: a Palestinian, a Christian and a Jew.

He proclaimed He was the Way, the Truth and the Life…then, to back it up, He died for the sins of the world.

Why wouldn’t all people want this perfect man to be their God?

He is mine.
