>> It is in the ORIGINAL old testament books BEFORE the Torah was written. <<

Are you referring to the Talmud, which was, indeed, written long after TaNaKh (Jewish bible)? Or some apocryphal works? (In which case, you are wron to refer to them as being a Hebrew bible, or in the Old Testament)

>> This is what the Christians envision as hell, with Peter The Roman (sah - tun) tending the straying flock. <<

I provided those quotes to demonstrate that Peter could not be tending the straying flock, but rather it must refer to the faithful when it says "flock." (Also, by definition, strays have left the flock. They are not a flock onto themselves, so the use of the word, "flock" would be wierd.)

>> If I'm not mistaken ins't Gabriel the Arch angel suppose to be our advocate? <<

I think I might have heard something along those lines among Muslims who deny that the Holy Spirit is the paraclete and also deny that Jesus is the Son of God.

You're not Muslim, are you? I know the Muslims believe that the Jews and Christians misrepresent the true scriptures. Is that what you mean by the ORIGINAL old testament... some sort of Muslim notion of what was in the old testament before the Jews supposedly changed it?

I have been reading all of these posts and am saddened deeply.

There are many posts here, from great thinkers, that dwell on the things to come.

I tell you.. Do not worry about this or that... Seek the Father through the blood of his son... Have faith and let he who sent you fulfill what he has already establish
