Either Jesus said it or He didn't.
Good response Nathan. As Jesus and Paul weren't alive at the same time, someone could also hypothetically say that since Jesus told Pat Robertson to spread his word (that would be a REAL stretch of faith), Pat Robertson's word is the word of Jesus Christ. Now wouldn't that be frightening!
The most beautiful gospel to me is the Q gospel and it didn't even make it into the final cut of the Bible. I suppose the editors figured they could embellish his teachings to make them "better". The original "sayings gospel" is the nut of the matter. The rest is all exposition......"A statement or rhetorical discourse intended to give information about or an explanation of difficult material."
