Would I want to live in Jesus days when Jesus was on Earth? Well I have to admit I am used to modern technology running faucets, convenient ovens, air condition so on way of life. Maybe even a better question, would I even survive in Jesus days? I honestly at least say it would be a rough life compared to what I know now. . I think in truth I wish I can use the Time Machine as I started the Time Machine thread in the Fellowship area. So I wish I could go back in a time machine to Jesus days to temporarily see how it was for a month or so and return back to this time to have much fuller knowledge of things.
To actually say though if I was born in those days would I believe Jesus? Yes I would if the person Jesus healed is someone I knew a friend. And I would certainly believe if I myself was healed today. We are informed on TV about these side show acts. Back then in ordinary times who could do all these things.
Would I want to follow Jesus? It would be neat to be one of the early disciples. Even if not the twelve those at least who lived during that time.. . But imagine though what aspect the Disciples had to see every miracle He did..All of them seen Jesus calming the wind in a few seconds.. What would be confusing though is I wonder “ Why is Jesus saying these things? Where are these commandments written?
So I admit I may believe his miracles but I think I would not know what commandments He is teaching this New Covenant Laws. Since the New Covenant laws didn't exist how would I know to follow the laws that Jesus had the authority to teach these things? Would I be able to live during those days? I don’t know. I would have to be there for certain to know how much I would handle and to see how much I would believe in His miracles and what of His teachings I can grasp.
I do admit for what we know today makes it easier to accept Jesus now because we have all the New Testament Books for which they did not have then, that we now have these days. I guess I think we have an advantage in some way of the proof we have now.
