Why is Jesus Depicted as the Warrior at Armageddon on just a Horse with a Bow and Arrow ?

    I never understood this. The WT depicts Jesus, the all powerful one to destroy evil, being depicted as using a bow and arrow from a horse. That seems like something from medieval times.

    In todays world of nuclear bombs, precision laser directed bombs and advanced military technology, does a bow and arrow really put a fear into anyone?

    Why not a particle beam cannon or a fusion disintegrator of righteousness?

    Then Jesus could be yelling out to the enemies, "I can blow the nuts off of a fly a million galaxies away if I just think about it."

    That would definitely put more fear into the enemies and I personally think that would be a better visual.

    Is Jesus depicted as one of the four horsemen I think he is according to JW doctrine? Who’s to say that he really is one of those horsemen?

    It is an error to consider the document from a modern perspective.

    Any ancient document has to be viewed from the perspective and context of the author's world view. When the Revelation was written, the writer would normally imagine events and actions within the framework of his world view. To go beyond that would mean he was producing something like what we cal sci-fi, which risked his audience seeing it all as unreal.

    Maybe if jesus was depicted with a Mohican hair cut and tatts riding on a horse with bow and arrow would have more impact and show he meant business.

    If the Bible really was the word of God ,then you would think their would be stuff in there that was far beyond the technology of the writer of the day.

    But apparently Jehovah had no idea himself what humans could develop technology wise.

    Just a bow and arrow.

    When a bullet goes into a human body, that is gruesome. But, by God, when an arrow goes into a person, that is beyond gruesome. I have seen it and it is not easily forgotten.

    Don`t forget the loving God Jehovah sent men into battle with a two edged sword with the command kill everybody man,woman,and child ,and don`t let your eye feel sorry for them .

    Can you imagine running a two edged sword into another human being ,let alone a child ?
