But yea, Jesus selected symbolically riding into Jerusalem on a white mule-colt, the last week of his life the week of Passover 30 A.D.. A Horse and a Donkey? But he chose a creature largely assumed to be infertile? Could the white mare in the Urantia Book symbolise Mary, or Eve, the Adamic Gift, and the donkey like Joseph, the salt of the earth? I know that you say that umgulates are unintelligent, but I have a hard time "avoiding perceptual trists of kinship" with such unassuming creatures? Jesus is not as assuming as the Pharisees, but he is like a mortal creature?
There is a type of kinship because I share in the life of the planet, and the emotions with other mammalian creatures. Maybe the colt could not know Jesus personally, but Jesus knew that he had claim to that creature somehow. What does this say about the way that Christ Michael looks after the needs of the human individual? Is Jesus just as nonassuming and trusting as the colt?
It is a pity you keep insisting to explain things you do not know about or understand. The UB especially. But so many other topics as well.
Jesus did not ride into Jerusalem on a mule Stephen. And mules are not "assumed" to be infertile, they are indeed infertile! The UB does not say the donkey was a mare OR white so your creation of metaphor and symbolisms are but your own inventions for your own purposes and, once again, have absolutely nothing to do with the Revelation even if the donkey were female (likely) and white in color!
NO, no animals in the UB represent the parents of Jesus...or Jesus. And Jesus borrowed the donkey and made no claim. It was a specific symbolic choice Jesus made to demonstrate his entry was one of peace and friendship. And now you compare Jesus to the ass? Oh dear.
172:3.5 (1881.3) A warrior king always entered a city riding upon a horse; a king on a mission of peace and friendship always entered riding upon an ass. Jesus would not enter Jerusalem as a man on horseback, but he was willing to enter peacefully and with good will as the Son of Man on a donkey.
I said nothing at all about umgulates (hoofed animals); I said sheep are stupid and so they are. Much more stupid than goats or horses or pigs and even cows which are none too bright either, but I did not broadly insult all hoofed animals as my comments were quite specific and for good reason and based on fact and experience. This has actually been studied but any farm boy knows the relative intelligence of farm animals. You have trysts of kinship with lambs?? Or sheep? Hmmmm……. Far too many jokes come to mind Stephen.
So now you're calling the Hebrew slaves the metaphorical lambs??? Quite the insult. Actually, of course, the Hebrews invented the story of Passover to give fable and myth qualities to their departure from Egypt. Passover was the blood of a lamb on the door or over the door...pure myth. But the Hebrews fled while sheep and lambs wander soon become lost. The Hebrews did not wander about as in the myth either....they were nomads with more goats than sheep that looked for water and grass and finally wandered to a well established place called Salem...eventually. The narrative you love so much is pure mythology Stephen.
Oh what a jambalaya of fiction and invention you throw together which truly demonstrates how little you know about your topic of choice and the ingredients you have selected. Please stop.....
