    Is the translation correct because i think it was melchisedec that offered the strong weeping and tears because the father always heard jesus and then a little further it mentions that this is the doctrine. Jesus was never in the"flesh"

    To Ibrahim
    Jesus Christ in His humanity like you and me was terrified of the death of deaths; all the sins of mankind poured upon Him; separated from His Father. The Cross was hard for Him to face so He prayed and cried to God and God heard Him because of His godly fear. Nevertheless He went to the Cross, He died and He rose again on the third day according to Scriptures. He endured the Cross.
  • Alise
    V.12 After receiving the Holy Ghost and being baptized in Jesus' name we become examples (teachers) of how to live before sinners but we can't pass the tests' God allows to come our way because we take things personal, we don't have the experience to be able to teach our brother how to live. We have to practice what we preach. We can't stay babes forever. We have to overcome our flesh!
