is based in Homer (which you never support with
evidence) equating the concept to Jesus' use in MK
then you must mean that the Homeric concept of God is
monotheistic and the relationship is far more intimate
than "friend" but as one's daddy. Where in Homer do we
find a monotheistic concept of God and anyone
portrayed as speaking to this monotheistic God as
RICK: "It is a Greek thought not Jewish."
So you are saying that monotheism is Homeric era Greek
existing in Homeric texts (which are not cited)
predating any Jewish concept. This further implies
that the Jews borrowed this idea from the Homeric
Greeks and you have evidence and proof of this claim.
It further implies that MK knew of this and is too
borrowing from Homer (yet uncited) since Paul before
MK had already done so.
Well, where's the evidence?
