    Who was Pontius Pilate?

    Correct - A governor, [of a Roman province]


    "And when they had bound Him, they led Him away and delivered
    Him to Pontius Pilate the governor.
    -

    "And as soon as he knew that He belonged to Herod’s jurisdiction,
    he sent Him to Herod, who was also in Jerusalem at that time.


    Then Herod, with his men of war, treated Him with contempt and mocked Him,
    arrayed Him in a gorgeous robe, and sent Him back to Pilate.

    -
    Pilate answered, “What I have written, I have written.”


    -He also was the one later, who delivered Jesus to them, to be crucified.

    "So Pilate, wanting to gratify the crowd, released Barabbas to them;
    and he delivered Jesus, after he had scourged Him, to be crucified.

    A Good Laugh, a little fun facts

    Feeling tired or sick? Try laughing more. Research suggests laughter just might be the best medicine to make you feel better. It gives you a more positive, upbeat frame of mind, triggers healthy physical and emotional changes, strengthens the immune system, and is a powerful antidote to stress, pain and conflict.

    Laughter literally improves your health. Nothing works faster to bring mind and body
    back into balance, lighten burdens, and enhance relationships.

    How the Body Benefits

    Triggered by sensations, thoughts or speech, laughter activates many parts of the body. Our facial expressions alter comically and we make curious grunts or snorts, something Encyclopedia Britannica describes as “rhythmic, vocalized, expiratory and involuntary actions.” As our facial and core muscles contract while in the throes of a sidesplitting har-de-har, the rest of the body’s muscles become weaker or less coordinated. This is probably why people double over or have trouble walking straight after a great joke.



    Laughter has more than anecdotal effects on human health. Physicians and researchers know that we get sick more often when dealing with high-stress situations, negative emotions or attitudes. These situations create an imbalance in immune system homeostasis, predisposing us to poor health.

    The Bible backs up this complex reciprocal interaction between the body and the mind. Proverbs 17:22 states: “A merry heart does good like a medicine, but a broken spirit dries the bones.” Negative thoughts or emotions can bring about a state of anxiety and “dry up the bones.” In contrast, laughter evokes a merry heart and harmlessly releases otherwise harmful biochemical changes.

    As it turns out, laughter’s “happy state” might indeed be “essential medicine” for thriving health. It stimulates the heart and lungs, reduces allergies, and boosts the immune system, memory and digestion. A lively laugh even enhances the intake of oxygen, stimulates circulation, and relieves discomfort by prompting the body to produce endorphins. These attach to the same receptors as opiates and act like a painkiller, without the negative side effects.

    Other research, such as a study done at Indiana State School of Nursing, has focused on the impact of laughter upon specific disease conditions. Evidence points to such jubilation increasing the levels of natural killer cells (white blood cells that attack cancer cells).


    In fact, so powerful are the physiological effects of a single, one-hour session viewing a humorous video, that significant positive reactions can occur in minutes and last for days. Norman Cousins discovered that 10 minutes of laughter allowed him to have two hours of pain-free sleep. In his book Anatomy of an Illness, Cousins says that his doctor told him that his disease, ankylosing spondylitis, would kill him within a few months. But Cousins read and watched a continuous stream of humorous films and similar “laughing matter” and within six months, his disease went into remission.

    Because laughter elicits a positive emotional response, it can be a great tool to use at family dinners to foster conversation participation. Humor piques interest, spurs creativity, and broadens thinking, so a good dose of merriment can be a fantastic teaching tool for children.

    Humans are naturally attracted to those who laugh because it makes them feel better. This is especially so as we age. That’s why it’s important to remember the saying: “You don’t stop laughing because you grow old, you grow old because you stop laughing.” So for a healthier—and more enjoyable—life, just laugh!

    A person wanting to separate.themselves unto God. Either men or women could be a Nazarite. No alcohol of any kind, no grape of any kind or any part of the vine, no shaving or cutting the hair, no coming around a dead body. No fooling around with philistine women either!

    "Nazareth! Can anything good come from there?"

    "How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power,
    who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil,
    for God was with Him.

    "Philip found Nathanael and said to him, “We have found Him of whom Moses
    in the law, and also the prophets, wrote—Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.”


    -the Roman soldiers couldn’t distinguish Him from the crowd of Jews (Matthew 26
    His appearance was typical of Galilean Semites in that time period.

    Paul says if a man has long hair, it is a disgrace to him (1 Corinthians 11:14)
    Jesus would have had short hair, typical of the men of the era.

    Carpenters of the time worked outside in various weather conditions.
    This means Christ would have been both tanned and muscular.
    -

    Now Pilate wrote a title and put it on the cross. And the writing was:
    JESUS OF NAZARETH, THE KING OF THE JEWS.
    -

    "let it be known to you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of
    Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead,
    by Him this man stands here before you whole.

    But he said to them, “Do not be alarmed. You seek Jesus of Nazareth, who
    was crucified. He is risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid Him.

    “What things?” So they said to Him, “The things concerning Jesus of Nazareth,
    who was a Prophet mighty in deed and word before God and all the people,
    --


    Numbers 6:21
    “This is the law of the Nazirite who vows to the Lord the offering for his separation

    "He shall be called a Nazarene", - because he lived there.

    But was He A Nazirite ? Did He ever make A vow?

    I don't believe Jesus was a Nazirite, because he was known as a drinker of wine. I believe John the Baptist was the fulfillment of the Nazirite thread - see Luke 1:15.

    Yes Some were appointed of God, before their birth, to be Nazarites
    all their days, as Samson and John the Baptist

    Jesus wasn't a Nazarite. He drank wine, and brought the dead to life.
