  1. well, it seems that the Russian people need God and not worse than the rest, why not believe in the Russian Lord God. It seems that Christ died for everyone

  2. Absolutely inaccurate.

    Jesus did not in any way separate the Jews from his audience, nor did he drive out the representatives of all other nations. Moreover, it was precisely Jewish leaders who scolded him for associating too closely with non-Jews, resurrecting the daughter of a Roman centurion, etc. And a popular quote from the Apostle Paul – “where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, barbarian, Scythian, slave, free, but Christ is all and in all” (Colossians 3: 11).

    This was precisely the difference between the New Testament and the Old. According to the New Testament brought by Jesus, every person, regardless of nationality, can receive salvation and help. Including the Russians.

  3. Yes. Jesus / Yeshua created his own teaching and preached to his own to replace “wrong” Judaism with merchants in the temple and the worship of the Golden Calf with love for one's neighbor. Not to everyone, really, but only to Christians.

    But the Golden Calf and the ancestral religion of Judaism were stronger, and with the help of God the Father, Christ was crucified. Sacrificed.

    However, Christianity rejected by the Jews was not in vain.

    The Jews gave it a universal cosmopolitan look and used it as a tool for managing the peoples of Europe together with the Vatican.

    After replacing Jewish names of gods and saints (in Hebrew) with Greek names, the tool proved to be very effective.

    After a sharp struggle at the Ecumenical Councils of the first half of the first millennium regarding who should be considered God in Christianity and the hierarchy of gods, the Trinity was included in the main church dogma of Christianity .

    The Old Testament God the Father of Hosts/Jehovah the Creator, the New Testament God-man Christ and God the Holy Spirit.

    Unfortunately, all three gods of happiness did not bring the Russian people, but they helped create the world's largest empire.

    As a wise historian said, put a strange god in your head and you will become a slave to the people who invented this god. That's what happened in Russia.

  4. From the point of view of the Christian church, Jesus did not preach his teaching to the people, but to the people. It's just that apart from the Jews and a small number of Roman occupiers (many of whom, by the way, believed in him during his lifetime), he had no other audience. And when he parted from his apostolic disciples on the eve of his ascension, he commanded them: “Go and make disciples of them, baptizing them in the name of the father, and of the son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to do all that I have commanded you” (Matthew 28:19-20). And even on the very next feast of the Holy Trinity, he granted their language the ability to be understood by native speakers of all other languages without translation. And the Apostle Paul formulated the final conclusion from this: for Christianity there is neither Greek nor Jew, neither circumcision nor uncircumcision, barbarian, Scythian, slave, free, but Christ is all and in all. So it is with the teachers of the church.

    As we can see, from their point of view, Christianity, perceived by the Russian people from the Jew Jesus through Prince Vladimir Svyatoslavich, is as international as Marxism, perceived by the Russians from the Jews Marx and Engels through another Vladimir – Ilyich.

    This is the case. You, as always, have the right to your own, even if special, opinion.

  5. The answer to your question is a quote from the Gospel of Matthew, chapter 18, verses 16-20.

    “And the eleven disciples went into Galilee, to the mountain whither Jesus had commanded them; and when they saw him, they worshiped Him; but some doubted.

    And Jesus drew near and said to them, ” All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.” Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. Amen to that.”

    Based on these words, the Gospel applies to all nations, “first to the Jew, then to the Greek,” and then to the Russian.

  6. As far as I know, Jesus preached, so to speak, to the place of residence, and not exclusively to the “Jewish people”. You never know who was there in Jerusalem and around (Russians are unlikely, of course). But the main thing is not even this, but the subsequent spread of Christianity around the world by the apostles. In particular, the Apostle Paul said the following:

    “…having put off the old man with his works, and put on the new one, who is renewed in knowledge after the image of him who created him, where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, slave, free, but Christ is all and in all. ” Colossians 3.

    The point is that all those who were baptized and converted to Christianity become new people and their previous religious / ethnic / social affiliation does not matter. This approach is why Christianity has spread so widely.
