    The Temple of Jerusalem has been called Herod's Temple. Jesus said, My father's house will be a house of prayer. Therefore Herod was his father.

    Jesus’ father was King Herod the Great.
    The Temple of Jerusalem has been called Herod’s Temple. Jesus said, My father’s house will be a house of prayer. Therefore Herod was his father.
    Second, Jesus’ father was a Roman soldier. Herod was a Roman soldier.
    Mary was young when she had Jesus.
    Herod had 10 wives. How many women on the side, then?
    Mary was one of the women on the side.
    After two of Herod’s children were put to death by Herod, Jesus takes on a whole new meaning.
    But, let’s hide Jesus’s father by claiming he wanted to kill him (Well, Herod had a reputation for doing such things.)
    The Talmud said Jesus was connected to government: no kidding with this scenario.
    So, this is part of the reason why John the Baptist was so honored to baptize Jesus, not that Jesus had already given his sermon on the Mount to impress John, not that he had done any of the wonders of his ministry which starts after his baptism. Jesus has not yet been blessed by the Holy Spirit. So, why is John the Baptist so honored: it cannot just be for spiritual reasons.

    Jesus had Herodian half brothers.
    Jesus had brothers from Joseph, his guardian.
    Jesus had brothers from Mary’s future children.

    (Religion homework at the graduate and post-graduate level is so more interesting than just going to hear a sermon.)

    Bart Ehrman and the Jesus Seminar are saying Jesus didn't perform ONE miracle. Bart says Jesus was so uneducated that he could not write. So, what was his claim to fame during his lifetime, what was the attraction, what gave him the ability to "own" the Temple in a way that has made his presence known for millennia?

    He was the son of Mono-bazus (only king).
    That king would have been Herod the Great (I can explain why later), or it was King Abgar, father of Prince Izates.

    In a letter outside of the New Testament, a man wrote that a people killed their king. Soon after the Jewish Temple was destroyed.

    Is this King Jesus, dressed in a purple robe before crucifixion, son of King Herod, son of Queen Helena, or son of King Monobaz?

    Well, it gets complicated. But I will say this: after all the wondrous signs reported about Jesus' crucifixion and resurrection, the Oral Tradition about him does not get written down until after King Izates and Queen Helena die.

    One writes down not to forget the living, now dead. In Bart Ehrman's Did Jesus Exist, he says gospels were around before 70 C.E.

    Ah, but the proto-gospels before the Jewish Revolt against Rome are different from the gospels after the Jewish Revolt against Rome.

    You really need to understand your scripture better and read it in correct context.

    LOOK: Matthew 21:12 "It is written," he said to them, "`My house will be called a house of prayer,' but you are making it a `den of robbers.'"

    Christ is telling the vendors what had been written about the function of the temple, he was not telling them something he thought up himself.

    Good grief.

    As for Herod being his D...erm, nope.
