RE: The easy Jesus test
I think it's just "Herd of Jesus"

I hear it all the time. Until now, the homonym was messing with my head, but I get it now. When the Christies ask you, "Excuse me, friend have you herd of Jesus?" They're not asking if you have HEARD of the myth. Instead, they are asking if you have MULTIPLE Jesus in your life. Even they don't know the plural.

In Latin, at least, the name Jesus operates as fourth declension (cf senatus, portus). In which case the nominative plural is distinguished only by pronunciation of the final 'u', and not in a change of ending.

If you were speaking of the Jesus or to the Jesus, then the accusative or dative cases would mark plurality.

edit: should probably be more specific. Properly speaking the word is irregular, but it is irregular fourth declension. We have no classical attestation of a plural form, and therefore it is constructed only by inference.

If one is using a collective noun (group, etc) then it would be bad form to use a Latin plural with an anglicism (collective nouns), and so I suppose one might better resort to a likewise anglicized plural ('Jesuses').

If you're looking for Greek or Hebrew (edit: or Aramaic) declension, alas, I cannot help you.

The earliest documents/writing don't have a very developed theology of it, and obviously Paul got it from the Greek mystery cult's "thanksgiving feasts/mysteries" which were rather common, (and they were their competition). There is no "institution" (of the Eucharist) in the (long) "Last Supper" in John's gospel, (which is rather surprising .. as they do have a Passover meal).

What do you know... I learned something today. The Catholic bible has extra books (such as first and second Maccabbes) and so I had assumed that they drew this tradition from one of these books that I haven't read, but I was wrong.

It's funny that some Christians take this literally, while it seems objectively to be meant metaphorically (especially since Jesus was sitting right there at the table with them, not yet missing any flesh or blood that could make up the meal). While I laugh often at Christian attempts to make obvious literal stories into metaphor, this has got to be the first example I've seen of it done in reverse.

My girlfriend is mad at me. Perhaps I shouldn't have tried cooking a stick in her non-stick pan.

Hmm... an apocalypse of Jesus has a nice ring to it.
Does a cross of Jesus work? Maybe a cloth of Jesus?

I was taught the wine and bread turned into the actual flesh and blood and it wasn't supposed to be a metaphor. I suppose I was taught before DNA bacame a thing. Well too bad, now they can't breed their own Jesus in a Petri dish and provoke the Rapture in their lifetime. Bad move I say.

My next thought was if we pumped someone's stomach who'd recently gone through communion, couldn't we extract the DNA of Jesus and have him cloned?

Needless to say, he didn't really care for that thought....

This is going in my inventory for future use.
