I truly believe that if Jesus Christ and Socrates actually had a conversion like this, Socrates would piss Jesus off to no end and there would be a repeat of that so-called incident in the market (in the Bible) where Jesus became enraged and destroyed the merchantile square.

Hmmm..I just thought of something...if Jesus was supposed to be perfect and sin free, what do you call the incident at the market? God's wrath? I thought anger was a type of sin... whistling2.gif

Other then that, I totally pictured Jesus getting pissed off in that convo by the tone of the writing.

I thought Socrates made a very logical view myself.

Oh and must not forget it wasn't really written by either Jesus or Socrates .
Interesting though after all is said and done .

Anger isn't sin.  Anger without just cause is sin.  Read the story of the market
place and you will have a clearer understanding of that.

*Sarcastic mode on*NO!!!!! *Sarcastic mode off*

Lets remember that Socrates died 400 + years before Jesus was born. Also Socrates did not write anything, all his beleifs we know from the writtings of his pupils in particular Plato. The Republic is Plato's most famous book involving Socrates. It in Socrates wonders around the city state, going to those who are beleived to be well versed on their subject matter, declare himself ignorant but eager to learn. The others then tell him their beleifs, only for Socrates apologetically interupting constantly to point out flaws in the argument. After each debate Socrates ends the one evidently with more knowledge despite admitting his ignorance.

The Socrates in the Republic was however simply a mouthpeice for Plato and probably does not depict the formers actually attitudes to how a State should be run. However the above reads EXACTLY like Socrates' debates in the book with such historic figures are Thrasymarchus, Gaulcon etc

Doesn't have a degree in History and Politics for nothing, I even got a 1/1 for my Politics essay on Plato for my BA.  thumbsup.gif

Jesus would've answered all of Soc's questions perfectly. Personally  don't think this is what a convo between the two would be like and I feel that the author was acting on the deep, non-concious (how do you spell that?) hatred that humans generally feel torwards God. Oh, and Joc's right: anger is not a sin. The Bible says "Beangry, in not," in Ephesians 4:26.  whistling2.gif

Shh.. no indepth reading about what we think the author is trying to portray.

Only one who knows is the bloody guy himself.  Now, enjoy it for what it is.  Funny ;P
