Agree or Disagree: Christians follow The “Biblical” Jesus

The above video is presented from a man by the name of Andy Gill.

You can follow him at @andygill. He has presented some very interesting thoughts and video including this one.

As we have recently resurrected the question about the term Christian Values with the debate stemming from Phil Robertson’s comments, I feel the question is quite relevant.

Many Christians would agree that the values should come from Jesus. After all, He is the centre of our faith. So based on that simple fact, we should be following.

However, are Christians following as Andy put it, an “Americanized” Version of Jesus? Or, are Christians following a Biblical Version of Jesus? Or as Andy put it the “Badass that we see in Scripture”?

I’m not going to put some verses up to convince you one way or the other. I’m going to let you listen to the video, read Scripture, or whatever source you want,and give your perspective.

Let’s see what you come up with.


One response to “Agree or Disagree: Christians follow The “Biblical” Jesus


    What are the facts about Jesus and wine?

    1. Did Jesus drink wine? Yes. Matthew 11:19 The Son of Man came eating and drinking, and they say , ‘Behold, a gluttonous man and a drunkard…(NASB) Historians tell us that the alcohol content of Jewish wine in the first century was mostly 2.5% or less. Jesus was not a drunkard. He was sinless.

    2. Did Jesus turn water into wine for the marriage feast at Cana? Yes. (John 2:1-11) Did Jesus turn the water into red wine? No, He did not. Red wine has an alcohol content of between 10 and 15%.

    3. God forbids men from drinking red wine. Proverbs 23:31-34 Do not look on the wine when it is red, When it sparkles in the cup; When it goes down smoothly;…(NASB). Jesus did not turn water into wine that God has forbidden men to drink.

    Most wines today have an alcohol content between 8 and 22 %. Most beer today has an alcohol content between 3 and 10%.

    Does any honest Christian believe that Jesus and the apostles would be engaged in social drinking in today’s world? The Jews of the first century mostly drank alcohol wine of 2.5% or less.

    Tailgating for Jesus and the apostles, I doubt that would happen.
