    Or was it that he was above sin - like his "father" who commited countless murders but is not accountable for it? What he did was good by definition?

    He violated the Sabbath law and he saved a condemned woman from being stoned in compliance with the law.

    Does it matter he had scruples and self-justifying theological arguments?

    Would those arguments have saved anybody else from being put to death?

    Technically speaking (the letter of the law) could we truly speak of Jesus as really without sin?

    As a Christian I believe Jesus was the Author of the Law. Therefore he could interpret the true meaning and application of the Law correctly. So no, Jesus did not transgress the Law, he transcended it. Burn

    Missing Link - that is another contradiction of the new covenant Jesus rendering the old covenant invalid rendering the idea of a Messiah impossible by default!

    Otherwise if he and the father were one and really wanted all that bloodshed, how come he came along turning the whole thing on its head?

    Maybe he had a trip over to India before he was 30?

    Well spotted!

    He was an apostate, defying the authority of the Governing Body and starting his own religion

    dear Terry...

    regardless of what Jesus did throughtout his life, when He died He was sin...not with sin but he was sin...

    For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him. 2 Cor. 5:21

    Jesus helped set people free from religious tyranny. Satan helped set people free from religious tyranny. Obviously, either Jesus was a sinner like everyone else, or Satan never sinned in the first place.
