Follow me..........!
« on: Fri Apr 08, 2016 - 13:20:28 »
In Matthew 4:18 and Mark 2:14 we see Jesus speak these words..."FOLLOW ME!"
Ever wonder why those men dropped everything and followed Jesus?

"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.  Take my yoke upon you and learn of me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light" (Matt. 11:28-30).

Was it not the culture of that day that every boy wanted to be a Rabbi?

Has anyone studied this out? How they become Rabbis?

Did Jesus become a Rabbi?

With all due respect, says who?  I've never heard this before.

Are we willing to drop everything and follow Christ?

Yes! But did they know who he was? I don't think so! They had to realize something if they were to drop everything ::pondering::

Many scriptures show Jesus as Rabbi.
If we look up the different stages it took to become a Rabbi back then..it was many years.
 From 6-12 they would attend elementary school.
Age 12 to move to the next level they would have to be selected.
Only the brightest students were selected to stand before the rabbis.

So where was Jesus at 12? He was in the temple astounding the teachers, and the rabbis were amazed.

So where was He between 12-30? Could he have advanced in his schooling to be qualified to all five levels of the Bet Talmud?
In order for him to be called Rabbi Jesus back then...didn't they have to complete school?

Then, it is just his flimsy opinion and I wouldn't let it seep in and become "truth". ::hug::
