The Blood of Christ

Not getting into whether or not the figure known as Jesus Christ is an actual, real, historical figure or not. Has anybody wondered what would have happened if the Romans had chosen to strangle, drown, suffocate, or otherwise kill Jesus without any blood letting, would his death still have “washed” the sins of the world? Or was literal blood spilling necessary?

A Withered Tree

Fun Bible fact

Matthew 13:14-21 Jesus feeds 5,000 with two loaves of bread and five small fish

John 2:6-11 Jesus turns 120-180 gallons of water into wine

Mark 11:12-14 Jesus is hungry and sees a fig tree, but it isn’t the season for figs, so naturally there are no figs. Jesus forgets he can make food and curses the fig tree “May no one eat from you ever again.” Because Jesus has faith the fig tree withers.

If Jesus can’t have it nobody can have it.

Bonus: Jesus reveals you can use faith for purely destructive purposes.

Bonus bonus: In Mark 11 the fig tree is withered by the next day. In Matthew 21 the fig tree withers on the spot.
