The Bible does not mention Jesus until he was 30. I find it odd that Jesus spent his whole life as a carpenter, then at age 30 he decides to start doing miracles and helping people. He must have seen suffering, sick and blind people all the time working back then as a carpenter. He must have thought "Never-mind about that, even though I can help, I am not going to. I am gonna wait many years and then start".

Compare Jesus to other heroes such as spider-man or the ninja turtles, who started helping people as teenagers. They did not wait until they were 30. If Jesus truly is a good person, why would he wait so long to help people?

Jesus starts his ministry as an adult. His life largely followed Jewish customs. Btw, comparing Jesus to what you see in the movies is really nerdy.

He was mastering his magical arts and skills of deception, a little bit like Dynamo the magician, nobody heard much about him until he was nearing thirty either.

So Jesus needed more experience? If Jesus was God's son then he would be omnipotent and would not need more experience.

So it was more important to to follow customs then to help people when he could? As far as the spider-man comparison goes, I think spider-man clearly wins. Spider-man did not care about following normal life customs. He even risked his relationship with his girlfriend to help people. Spider-man has a simple clear message " an eye for an eye makes the world blind", whereas the message of Jesus gets interpreted by many different ways by different sects. Spider-man is humble and does not care about religion ,where Jesus does his whole you must worship me thing. Spider-man defeated many villains like Venom and the Green Goblin and saves people all the time. Jesus cured a few blind people (even though he could cure them al if he wanted), walked on water and made wine.

As far as the nerdy thing goes, no one ever started a war or genocide debating who is better Spiderman or Ninja Turtles. But, the same cannot be said about people debating whose God is better.

The Jewish laws decreed that a man had to be thirty before they could take on the role of "Rabbi", being a teacher. There was also a timeline and there is still one to this day.

Yes good point , I'm a muslim, and believe He was one of the five most important messengers of God.But I don't know if it's about experience, It's just God's way of doing things.

That's plenty for me & UNLIKE these other selfish divine reward seekers, that only claim to be believers so they increase their chances of obtaining Story book rewards, my unselfishness, morality and integrity leave them trodden underfoot in my benevolent wake!

The way to talk and describe yourself it sounds like you reward yourself.

my unselfishness, morality and integrity leave
my benevolent wake!:
"them trodden underfoot", "bastard son was made from a god screwing its own Mother".

I doubt you are moral, unselfish, have integrity, nor benevolent.

Dynamo is more impressive than Jesus. I can even do many of his tricks (still cannot figure out walking through glass lol).

First of all, there is a long narrative in Matthew and Luke about Jesus' birth, infanthood, childhood, and moving up to being 12. Then there is a gap.

It's not that Jesus did nothing until 30.

It's that, once he hit puberty, he had the good sense to ditch his biographers for awhile.

Doesn't the more obvious question seem to be why it took God so long to send Jesus haha?

That was laziness, though. You're right. Along with a little schoolwork and lack of communication.

How did they allegedly manage to do that?Magic is illusion, everybody can tell a person is dead, so bringing a person back to life cannot be a magic trick when the person can talk and do things, I suppose the family of the person were there too.
