    It is a good analogy because the process took decades to hundreds of years. The one hearing may have never have known the one that passed the origingal message...

    Why three days? Was he nervous?

    Shooting the messenger, Dovkan? Not a credible exercise.

    Perhaps you would prefer testimony about Jesus from a hostile source?

    The Babylonian Talmud is a commentary on Jewish laws composed between A.D. 500-600 (Neusner/Green, 69) Therein is a text about Jesus’ death. The Tractate Sanhedrin (43a) contains this passage:

    Jesus was hanged on Passover Eve. Forty days previously the herald had cried, “He is being led out for stoning, because he has practiced sorcery and led Israel astray and enticed them into apostasy. Whosoever has anything to say in his defense, let him come and declare it.” As nothing was brought forward in his defense, he was hanged on Passover Eve.

    https://www.christiancourier.com/art...-of-christ-the

    By the way, the Babylonian Talmud no doubt has as its basis teachings from Oral transmission of a much earlier time, likely dating back as far as the Babylonian captivity.

    So, Jesus practiced "sorcery" - i.e. magic. No doubt their description of miracles.

    Gotta love it, Dovkan!

    Probably because 3 is a number that is common in scripture. Samuel is called 3 times before he answers, Earth was created on the 3rd day, the sign on the cross has 3 languages, Jesus was tempted 3 times by the devil.

    Do any of those archaeological facts show that people used to have magical powers?
    In would have definitely remembered that and this 2000 year old " Magician " with a small contingent of followers seems to have pulled off the most successful PR campaign in the HIstory of the world.

    He now has 2 Billion followers.

    You have some evidence they were lying then please let us see it.

    We're not talking about 21st century political liars, but men who put their lives on the line to give others the truth.

    Nope. Magic is supposed to be Mankind attaining some kind of special control over unnatural forces in order to bend the world to their will. The miraculous events of Christianity are the exact opposite - God is in control and it's for His purposes.
    “In America we have a two-party system,” a Republican congressional staffer told a visiting group of Russian legislators. “There is the stupid party. And there is the evil party. I am proud to be a member of the stupid party. Periodically, the two parties get together and do something that is both stupid and evil. This is called: bipartisanship."
