What do you think Jesus meant by all this?

Christians say Jesus was God, yet he clearly makes a distinction. What do you think?

When you understand that 'what Jesus said' was only what the ones next to Him thought how He said it and they wrote it down ......................... then you might have understood something.

Yes, that is actually very wise, in that, whatever Jesus said would have been understood in context to the events/experiences of that time.

And having said that, I myself also fell for it, I wrote 'they wrote it down' and that's very assuming. The point is that interpreting or quoting someone 100% accurately is almost impossible. Then imagine something is passed on time after time how it all turns upside down. It is known the Matthew and Luke were literate, a tax collector and physician, but there is nothing that indicates that the other two evangelists could even write. Even so, for a very long time, people made a decent living off of writing for other people, anybody could pay a scribe to write anything, and that is another twister. So I guess I better reason out the probabilities instead of making assumptions.

It appears that some of Jesus' disciples may have been able to read and write.
